Chancellor's MLK Student Appreciation Event

As a part of UAA's commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are recognizing UAA students who have made positive contributions to our institution. These students fill a variety of leadership roles in student organizations, work behind the scenes for numerous departments, and give of themselves in their courses above and beyond the expected. Taken from Dr. King's theme, "Everyone makes a difference," we are proud to honor these students as individuals who have made a difference through their work to the UAA community.

Staff and faculty members recommend students who serve our campus community, both in the limelight and behind the scenes. Please honor those students by submitting their names for this recognition.

Due to COVID-19 we are still working to finalize our celebration, However, we will be honoring the students on February 4, 2022. More details to come. 

We look forward to celebrating our students and the legacy of Dr. King at the 2022 Chancellor’s MLK Student Appreciation Celebration.

If you have any questions about this event, please call (907) 786-1219 or

This program is coordinated by Student Activities & Commuter Programs, in conjunction with the Chancellor's Office.
