Our brain affects how we interact and relate to others. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) regulates body systems. It gives us wisdom, mind sight, and empathy. Ultimately, it is the part of our brain that makes us human. This seminar explores cutting-edge research around interpersonal neurobiology.

Enhancing diversity at UAA, one student at a time
The UAA Diversity Action Council awards the Student Diversity Award Scholarship, up to $1,000, every year to students who contribute to enhancing diversity at UAA.
Celebrating Pride Month and Juneteenth
As we celebrate diversity on our campus, June provides two very important opportunities to elevate conversations surrounding race, sexual orientation and gender identity.
UAA is in Phase B of its COVID-19 response plan. What does this mean?
The On-Site Operations Plan for the University of Alaska outlines a five-phase framework for resuming on-site activities and operations at university campuses, with risk metrics, potential operations and protective measures listed for each phase. Information on each of the phases and current operational limits is available at the UA COVID-19 website.
UA performance management reminder
This is a reminder that the June 30, 2020, deadline for staff performance evaluations is approaching. Supervisors are responsible for ensuring evaluations are completed for their team members. It is UA’s goal that 100% of staff members receive an annual performance review.
Limited housing for fall 2020
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, on-campus housing at UAA will operate at a reduced capacity and with limited services in fall 2020. Only residents meeting certain exception criteria will be approved to live on-campus. Due to the reduced capacity and the number of applications already received, On-Campus Living will stop accepting fall 2020 housing applications June 19, 2020. After June 19, interested students can request that they be added to a wait list in the event that the current pandemic subsides and housing is able to open up more fully.
Scrolling through social media on any given day can often be an exercise in patience. In the wake of protests sweeping the nation in response to the death of George Floyd, the social media landscape has become particularly charged with difficult dialogue.
Pride Month — Education + Fun = Funducation!
Across the nation, Pride is celebrated throughout the month of June. At UAA, inclusivity of everyone in our community is imperative to creating a Culture of Respect. Please join us in celebrating throughout the month of June!
