Presenting the spring 2022 edition of Spirit magazine! As UAA's premier publication, these amazing stories capture the great work of alumni and students from your Hometown U. This issue shines a light on new developments happening at the university. 

Meet engineering alumna Michele Yatchmeneff, UAA’s new executive director of Alaska Native education and outreach, whose previous roles as engineering associate professor and ANSEP assistant director make her the perfect person to facilitate success for students, faculty and staff on campus. And meet history alumnus Matt Shasby, UAA’s latest hockey head coach, whose own time as a student-athlete, pro hockey player and teacher combine to give him a unique approach to coaching. 

Elsewhere, at the School of Nursing, learn how recent expansions, scholarships and accolades are laying the foundation for a stronger health care workforce in Alaska.

Also happening is an exciting refresh to the Honors College — one that offers a more flexible,  streamlined curriculum while emphasizing immersive, experiential learning.

Looking further ahead, preview the implementation of resident tuition for all, campus reopening and the return of in-person events!

With these stories and more, please enjoy leaning in and learning more about how #SeawolfNation continues to make an impact in Alaska and beyond.
