by Matt Jardin  |   

The spring 2021 edition of Spirit magazine is here! As UAA's premier publication, these amazing stories capture the great work of alumni and students from your Hometown U.

This issue of Spirit is about recovery. Some of the Seawolves you’ll hear from include social work alumna Naidene Baechler. As program manager for the Knik Tribe’s new behavioral health program, she provides access to mental health resources at a time when maintaining wellness can seem challenging, but is more crucial than ever.

You’ll also read about justice alumnus Kenneth McCoy. Through his role as Anchorage Police Department deputy chief and more recently as acting chief of police, he maintains an ongoing dialogue between the community and the department amid a cultural shift in the way we talk about racial equity and law enforcement.

Additionally, included in this issue are stories about how alumni-owned businesses from a variety of industries have coped during the coronavirus, as well as how a UAA-UAF collaboration is paving the way for renewable energy in the state.

Please enjoy leaning in and learning more about how #SeawolfNation continues to make an impact for Alaska and in communities everywhere! View the full magazine here.
