Ukrainians are being displaced, UAA is helping

by Sean Parnell, UAA Chancellor  |   

Dear UAA Community,

What’s happening to the people of Ukraine is horrific. The invasion of their country by Russian Federation military forces is causing death, destruction and displacement. I have heard from individuals in the UAA community who are personally impacted. These are difficult stories to hear.

To recognize this seismic world event, UAA is offering support through a learning opportunity as well as encouraging our university community to donate to organizations offering relief during this humanitarian crisis. Additionally, UAA is currently coordinating to host displaced Ukrainian people on its campus (and potentially other campuses in the University of Alaska System). Learn more about all of these efforts in this video message.

Join UAA’s Department of History for a free roundtable discussion, The Misuse of History and the Russian Invasion of Ukraine. It’s open to the public and we encourage you to invite your friends and family.

  • The panel will be held Wednesday, March 16, at 5 p.m. in the UAA Fine Arts Building, Recital Hall. Parking is free. Those unable to attend in person are invited to join over Zoom.  

During this difficult period, we’re encouraging you to take time to learn and provide support to those affected by this tragic global event.

Though it feels like the world is grand and large, it’s often smaller than we think. Your friend, neighbor or colleague may be someone who needs a helping hand right now.

With Green and Gold support,
Sean Parnell
UAA Chancellor
