The Capitol Report - Feb. 26, 2018 Greetings from Juneau. Today is the 42nd day of the legislative session-it's hard to believe the 90-day regular session is almost half way through! Last week was a very busy week for the university, including five committee hearings and the "UA Impact" alumni fly-in in Juneau and President Johnsen's State of the University address in Anchorage.

For updates on the university's FY19 budget and other Capitol happenings, read the full report at alaska.edu/state/report.
