The inaugural Chancellor's League will include a diverse group of students representing the best and brightest of the University of Alaska Anchorage. They will be selected through a faculty or staff referral, competitive application and interview process. Chancellor's League members will assist with high-profile campus visits, events at the Chancellor's House, fundraisers, commencements and other distinguished University and community events.

Members will hone their leadership skills and have unique opportunities to interact with other outstanding students, community members, faculty, administration and alumni. Selection will be based on willingness to serve, desire to develop as campus and community leaders, availability, academic and extracurricular achievements and professionalism.
Students selected will be inducted into the Chancellor's League at a mandatory day-long retreat where they will study university history and mission, develop their UAA story, receive etiquette training, meet key administrators and alumni, and plan for the semester.
