Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

 

 

Our Anchorage campus sits on the ancestral homelands of Alaska's First Peoples, and our UAA campuses include some of the most diverse places in the country. As such, UAA has included diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as a main component of the University strategic plan, UAA 2025.

  • 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.
