One of the committee’s projects is creating a video that targets UAA’s inclusive climate for all, including LGTBQ+ student, faculty and staff, to be released at Campus Kickoff on Aug. 22. We would like to invite you to participate in the end of the video with a few words of encouragement for the LGBTQ+ community.
