“Increasing the cultural, social and intellectual diversity of UAA students, staff and faculty is fundamental to our success. With an increase in diversity on our campuses we are enhancing and promoting a deeper understanding of local, national and global communities and fully embracing our core values of diversity and inclusion." - Chancellor Tom Case
UAA Diversity Statement
UAA recognizes and values the diversity of our unique location in Southcentral Alaska, the ancestral homelands of the Dena’ina Athabascan, Ahtna Athabascan, Alutiiq/Sugpiak, and Eyak peoples.
The University fosters an inclusive, welcoming and respectful campus community that promotes diversity, civility, inclusion, and an appreciation for each unique member of our academic community. UAA promotes and celebrates diversity through its academic and community support programs, clubs, committees, and councils. Intellectual honesty, mutual respect, and freedom from discrimination, intimidation, discriminatory harassment, and violence are central to our mission.
We honor diverse experiences and perspectives—including differences in ideas, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, culture, nationality, age, disability, veteran and socioeconomic status—and strive to create welcoming and inclusive learning environments where all are treated with respect.
At UAA, valuing diversity is integral to excellence. Diversity maximizes our potential for creativity, innovation, educational excellence, and outstanding service to our communities.
UAA strives to support its unique and diverse community by employing faculty who come from a myriad of different backgrounds. Watch a video featuring four faculty members who have found a home at UAA.
