UAA Spring 2020 Graduation Day Celebration

Welcome to the spring 2020 graduation day celebration!

A Tribute to Our Grads: UAA Spring 2020 Graduation Day Celebration. We remain hopeful we can invite you to participate in a future in-person ceremony soon. But since there are many unknowns at this time, we are proceeding with this alternative celebration for you, the rest of our graduating students and all of our awardees.

We'd like to acknowledge that the UAA buildings sit on the traditional lands of the Eklutna Dena'ina people, and thank the Native Village of Eklutna for welcoming us to their lands.
