The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act) requires higher education institutions to publish campus security policies. The Act also requires that crime data is collected, reported, and disseminated to the campus community, the Department of Education, and potential students and employees.

The 2022 Annual Security Report contains information regarding campus safety and security including topics such as: campus law enforcement authority; crime reporting policies; campus alerts (Timely Warnings and Emergency Notifications); fire safety policies and procedures; programs to prevent dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking; the procedures the University will follow when one of these crimes is reported; and other matters of importance related to security on campus. The report also contains information about crime statistics for the three most recent calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in On-Campus Student Housing Facilities; in Noncampus buildings or property owned or controlled by the University or a recognized student organization; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus.

This report includes policies and statistics for the Anchorage campus, Aviation Technology Complex, JBER - Elmendorf Extension, JBER - Richardson Extension, Kenai Peninsula College - Kachemak Bay campus, Kenai Peninsula College - Kenai River campus, Kodiak College, Kodiak High School Extension, Matanuska-Susitna College, Prince William Sound College, and Prince William Sound College - Cordova Extension.

The general information included is relevant to all University of Alaska Anchorage campuses. Where appropriate, information unique to particular campuses is also included. UA Board of Regents Policies and University Regulations are applicable to all campuses. The information in this report may be updated throughout the year.

Preparation of the 2022 Annual Security Report

The UAA Police Department keeps campus crime and arrest statistics for the Anchorage and Aviation Technology Complex campuses. University Police requests campus crime and arrest statistics for campuses from the Alaska State Troopers and local law enforcement agencies. During the fall and spring semesters, the Dean of Students Office sends requests for statistical information to campus security authorities (CSAs). The Dean of Students Office compiles statistics for the annual security report from CSAs, University Police, state and local law enforcement agencies, the Dean of Students Office, and the Office of Equity and Compliance. For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year that the crime was reported.

The annual security report, including supplemental documentation, is created and maintained by the Dean of Students Office. The Dean of Students Office submits the annual crime statistics published in this report to the Department of Education (ED). The statistical information gathered by the Department of Education is available to the public through the ED website.

University Police Department (UPD) Authority & Jurisdiction - Anchorage Campus,  Aviation Technology Complex, and Matanuska-Susitna College

The University of Alaska Anchorage Police Department is a unit within the larger institution of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) and ultimately the University of Alaska System. The Anchorage campus and Aviation Technology Complex are urban, metropolitan campuses with 73 buildings, 3.2 million gross square feet of space, 6.6 lane miles of roadway, located on 360 acres, and within the University-Medical District (U-MED) of Anchorage, serving a campus population of approximately 14,000+ people. Because of the location of these campuses, UPD has unique challenges as it relates to community safety and law enforcement. It is surrounded by three medical facilities (including psychiatric / drug rehabilitation treatment facilities), the largest juvenile justice treatment center in the state, a private university, and federal government facilities. These peripheral institutions require additional consideration, awareness, and response needs.

UPD employs full-time, commissioned and armed police officers, certified by the Alaska Police Standards Council. UPD officers have arrest authority and arrest perpetrators of criminal activity. UPD officers are responsible for enforcing Alaska State Statutes, local laws, UAA policies, investigating incidents, and maintaining order on campus and surrounding property. UPD also employs non-commissioned security personnel who are responsible for assisting with the physical security of the campus buildings on the Anchorage campus.

The prosecution of all criminal offenses, both felony and misdemeanor, that occur on and around the Anchorage and Aviation Technology Complex campuses are referred to the Anchorage District Attorney or the Anchorage Municipal Prosecutor's Office in Anchorage. Offenses and cases originating from the Mat-Su College Campus are referred to the Matanuska-Susitna Borough District Attorney's Office. Cases involving juveniles are referred to the appropriate agency. If minor offenses involving University rules and regulations are committed by University students, staff, or faculty, UPD may also refer the matter to the Dean of Students Office, Human Resources, and the Office of Equity and Compliance (Title IX), respectively. UPD notifies the Office of Equity and Compliance when an incident or offense involves dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and gender-based or sexual misconduct.

As needed or requested, UPD will conduct joint investigative efforts with investigators from the Anchorage Police Department (APD), the Anchorage Fire Department (AFD), the Alaska State Troopers (AST), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and other law enforcement agencies.

UPD utilizes the Alaska Public Safety Information Network (APSIN) and National Law Enforcement Telecommunications Network (NLETS) terminals. Through these systems, police personnel can access the State of Alaska computer system and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) computer system. These computer databases are used for accessing criminal history data, nationwide police records, driver/vehicle identification information, as well as other local, state and federal law enforcement information.

UPD officers also provide a blend of customer service and community policing unique to the University setting. Those services include maintaining security of University buildings, providing crime prevention classes to students, staff, and members of the community, providing safety escorts, vehicle unlocks, and vehicle jumpstarts on campus.

UPD officers are certified to enforce criminal laws throughout the State of Alaska; however, their normal patrol jurisdiction is confined to the U-MED District and associated roadways to and from the Aviation Technology Complex and the University Center.

Security Personnel Authority & Jurisdiction - Community Campuses

Matanuska-Susitna College

The University of Alaska Anchorage Police Department provides a police officer on-site at Matanuska-Susitna College on a part time basis, to assist with crime prevention, campus patrols, and investigations specific to the Mat-Su Campus. The police officer is normally present during business hours, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. All services are coordinated via the Anchorage Campus and if assistance is needed, please call the main UPD phone number at 907-786-1120 or 911 in an emergency.

JBER - Elemendorf Extension, JBER - Richardson Extension, Kenai Peninsula College - Kachemak Bay Campus, Kenai Peninsula College - Kenai River Campus, Kodiak College, Prince William Sound College, and Prince William Sound College - Cordova Extension

These campuses do not have campus police or security departments.

Agency Cooperation

Anchorage Campus and Aviation Technology Complex

The University Police Department (UPD) has established working relationships with federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) establishes a mutual aid agreement between UPD and the Anchorage Police Department (APD). UPD enjoys an especially good relationship with APD. The exercise of that authority is described in a mutual aid agreement between UPD and APD that outlines that each police department will assist each other when needed. APD will have primary jurisdiction of crimes occurring off campus. UPD will have primary jurisdiction of crimes occurring on campus. Special needs are communicated between police departments as they occur.

UPD also coordinates with the Alaska State Troopers (AST) on an as needed basis.

JBER - Elmendorf Extension, JBER - Richardson Extension, Kenai Peninsula College - Kachemak Bay Campus, Kenai Peninsula College - Kenai River Campus, Kodiak College, Kodiak High School Extension, Matanuska-Susitna College, Prince William Sound College, and Prince William Sound College - Cordova Extension

Reporting a Crime

Anchorage Campus and Aviation Technology Complex

UAA encourages students, employees, visitors, and community members to report all crimes, emergencies and public safety related incidents to the University Police Department (UPD) in an accurate and timely manner.  

UPD is available 24 hours a day to answer calls. In response to a call, UPD will take the required action, either dispatching an officer and/or other emergency services or assisting the caller with contacting the appropriate emergency services to file an incident report. All reported crimes will be investigated by University Police.

UPD incident reports involving students may be forwarded to the Dean of Students Office for review and potential action through the student disciplinary process. Likewise, UPD incident reports involving faculty may be forwarded to the Provost's Office and incident reports involving staff may be forwarded to Human Resources. UPD incident reports involving dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and gender-based or sexual misconduct will be forwarded to the Office of Equity and Compliance.

Crimes should be reported to UPD and/or other preferred receivers of reports (listed below) to be assessed for inclusion in the annual crime statistics and/or the daily crime log as well as assessing it to determine if it warrants providing timely warning notices to the University community, when appropriate.

The University community is encouraged to report crimes, emergencies, and safety concerns, including when the victim elects to, or is unable to, make such a report by calling UPD. In an emergency, dial 911 or 907-786-1120. You may also use an emergency phone in an elevator, or use one of the blue-lighted emergency phones throughout campus.

Campus Security Authorities

Federal law maintains that in addition to University Police Department (UPD) officers, any person who has a significant responsibility for student and campus activities is a campus security authority (CSA). A CSA is required to report any Clery-related offense immediately to UPD or the preferred professionals at each campus. CSAs may withhold the name(s) of the individual(s) involved when reporting to UPD or the college or campus director, but CSAs are required to report the name(s) of individual(s) involved to the Title IX Coordinator in cases of dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or sexual assault. Reports from CSAs will be evaluated to determine if it is necessary to issue a timely warning to the campus if the incident or crime represents a serious or continuing threat to the campus community. During the fall and spring semesters, the Dean of Students Office sends requests for statistical information to campus security authorities (CSAs).

Reporting a Crime Confidentially to UAA

University Police encourage anyone who is the victim or witness to any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Confidential reports can be made to the University Police. Confidential reports of crime can also be made to campus security authorities (unless the report involves dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or sexual assault). The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter private while taking steps to enhance the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, UAA can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, employees and visitors; determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant; and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution. However, if the University determines that the nature of the reported offense is severe enough or pervasive, the University can take action to investigate or remedy the reported criminal activity.

Anonymous Reporting: Silent Witness and EthicsPoint

The purpose of an anonymous report is to comply with your wish to keep the reporting person anonymous, while taking steps to foster a safer campus community. With such information, the University can report more accurate crime statistics; determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant; and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution.

Silent Witness is a program where anyone may anonymously report criminal or other suspicious activity at UAA to University Police (UPD). To file an anonymous report, concerned citizens may submit a form on the Silent Witness webpage. Types of crime/incidents reportable on the form include alcohol/drugs, domestic violence/abuse, stalking/harassment, assault, and disruptive/concerning behavior. The form asks individuals to report the location, date/time, and description of the incident as well as subjects involved.

Information submitted via this form is reviewed by UPD 24 hours a day, but this is a secondary reporting option and should not be used to report crimes in progress. To report crimes in progress, call UPD at 907-786-1120 or dial 911 in the case of an emergency. A web link to the Silent Witness program can be found on the UPD website: www.uaa.alaska.edu/upd.

EthicsPoint is a third party hotline, provided by the University of Alaska Statewide Office of Audit and Consulting Services, and is able to receive anonymous reports in confidence if the reporter so chooses. Community members are encouraged to use this hotline to make reports relating to Board of Regents policies, university regulations or procedures, any applicable federal, state, borough, or city violations, and any other regulations that may apply to University programs. Reports may be made with EthicsPoint online or by phone at 855-251-5719.

Confidentiality with UAA's Pastoral and Professional Counselors

UAA “Pastoral Counselors” and “Professional Counselors,” when acting as such, are not considered to be campus security authorities and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics. The term “Pastoral Counselor” is defined as “a person who is associated with a religious order or denomination, is recognized by that religious order or denomination as someone who provides confidential counseling, and is functioning within the scope of that recognition as a pastoral counselor.” The term "Professional Counselor" is defined as “an employee of an institution whose official responsibilities include providing psychological counseling to members of the institution's community and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification.” As a matter of policy, pastoral and professional counselors are encouraged, if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics. UAA is not required to issue a timely warning with respect to crimes reported to pastoral or professional counselors.

Timely Warning Notices

All UAA Campuses

Timely warning notices may be issued when a Clery-reportable crime that occurs on or within UAA’s Clery Geography (On Campus, Public Property and Noncampus property), is reported to a campus security authority and is considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. 

Timely warning notices are usually distributed for:

  • Major incidents of arson
  • Murder / non-negligent manslaughter
  • A burglary or motor vehicle theft
  • Robbery involving force or violence (cases including pick pocketing and purse snatching will typically not result in the issuance of a Timely Warning Notice but will be assessed on a case by case basis)
  • Aggravated assaults will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine the seriousness of the offense; or whether a continuing threat is present
  • Reports of sex offenses are considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the facts of the case and if it is reported within six months of the incident
  • Other Clery crimes as determined by the UAA UPD Chief of Police or their designee in their absence

A “Seawolf Advisory” may also be issued to inform the UAA community about other safety-related information which is not covered by UAA’s Timely Warning Notices or Emergency Notification policies.

UAA does not issue timely warning notices for the above listed crimes if:

  • The police apprehends the subject(s) and the threat of imminent danger for members of the University community has been mitigated by the apprehension.
  • If a report was not filed in a timely manner.
  • If a report was not filed with University Police or a campus security authority or if the crime was not reported in a manner that would allow notice of a "timely" warning for the community. A general guideline is that a report filed more than ten days after the date of the reported incident may not allow UAA to post a "timely" warning to the community. This type of situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • UAA is not required to issue a timely warning notice with respect to crimes reported to a pastoral or professional counselor.

All timely warning notices will include the following, unless issuing any of this information would risk compromising law enforcement efforts:

  • Date and time or timeframe of the incident
  • A brief description of the incident
  • Information that will promote safety and potentially aid in the prevention of similar crimes (crime prevention or safety tips)
  • Suspect description(s) when deemed appropriate and if there is sufficient detail (see below)
  • University Police contact information
  • Other information as deemed appropriate by the University Police Department

The description of subjects in a case will only be included in the timely warning notification if there is a sufficient amount of detail to describe the individual. If the only known descriptors are sex and race, that will not be included in the notification. 

Timely warning notices will be distributed as soon as pertinent information is available, in a manner that withholds the names of victims as confidential, and with the goal of aiding in the prevention of similar occurrences. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) strictly prohibits publishing victim names in timely warning notifications.

Anchorage Campus, Aviation Technology Complex, JBER - Elemendorf Extension, and JBER - Richardson Extension

Timely warnings are issued when: 1) a Clery crime that occurs within our Clery geography is reported directly to the University Police Department (UPD) or indirectly to UPD through a campus security authority or the Anchorage Police Department and 2) it is considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. A “Seawolf Advisory” may also be issued to inform the community about other safety-related information which is not covered by the Timely Warning Notices or Emergency Notification policies. The University Police Chief or designee reviews all reports to determine if there is a serious or continuing threat to the community and if the distribution of a timely warning notice is warranted. UPD and/or the Incident Management Team (IMT) are responsible for issuing timely warnings. Timely warning notices are typically drafted and distributed for IMT by University Advancement, UPD, or the Department of Environment Health & Safety / Risk Management.

The IMT consists of members from Student Affairs, University Police, Facilities and Campus Services, and University Advancement. Timely warnings may be communicated through the UA Alerts notification system which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone or email; via UAA email; posted signs; the UAA website; social media websites; and/or via the Seawolf Daily. Registered students and current employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. To update your contact information in UA Alerts, go to uaalert.alaska.edu. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to UPD by phoning 907-786-1120 or going in person to the UPD dispatch center in Eugene Short Hall, Room 114.

Kenai Peninsula College - Kachemak Bay Campus

Timely warnings are issued to the Kenai Peninsula College - Kachemak Bay Campus (KBC) when a Clery crime that occurs within KBC’s Clery geography is reported to a campus security authority and is considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. A “Seawolf Advisory” may also be issued to inform the community about other safety-related information which is not covered by the Timely Warning Notices or Emergency Notification policies. The KBC Campus Director or designee reviews all reports to determine if there is a serious or continuing threat to the community and if the distribution of a timely warning notice is warranted. The KBC Campus Director or designee is responsible for coordinating the response. Timely Warning Notices are typically written and distributed by the KBC Campus Director.

Emergency Notifications

Anchorage and Aviation Technology Complex Campuses

UAA maintains an Emergency Response Plan that outlines responsibilities of campus units during emergencies. This plan outlines incident priorities, campus organization and specific responsibilities of particular units or positions.

University units are responsible for developing emergency response and continuity of operations plans for their areas and staff. Campus emergency management provides resources and guidance for the development of these plans.

The Incident Management Team (IMT), consisting of members from Student Affairs, University Police, Facilities and Campus Services, and University Advancement meets regularly during the academic year to discuss, plan, and address either current or potential incidents which may affect the Anchorage or Aviation Technology Complex campuses. The IMT is charged with managing the emergency from onset to recovery. The IMT has both the decision-making and financial authority to address emergencies on campus. Both UPD supervisors and IMT members have received Incident Command System (ICS) training. ICS training is also provided to other selected University employees who IMT may call upon to help them manage an emergency. The IMT regularly sends email messages to staff and students to educate the campus communities about seasonal safety issues and what to do in the event of specific emergencies.

To report an emergency, dial 911, use an emergency phone in an elevator, or use a blue-lighted emergency phone on campus. Reports about all other police non-emergencies on the Anchorage and Aviation Technology Complex campuses should be directed to University Police (UPD) by phoning 907-786-1120.

  • In the event of hazardous materials, the Anchorage Fire Department (AFD) should notify UPD that they are responding to an incident.
  • In the event of fire, UPD will contact AFD to verify they are en-route.
  • In the event of a public health emergency, IMT will coordinate with the Student Health & Counseling Center and Alaska Department of Health & Social Services.
  • If UAA has a confirmed case of a highly-communicable disease on campus, or UAA has confirmation that an individual or individuals on campus have been exposed to persons who have tested positive for a highly-communicable disease, such conditions would very likely warrant issuance of an Emergency Notification.
  • In the event of a natural gas leak, UPD will consult with utility responders to determine the size of the evacuation area.
  • In the event that APD pursues a criminal onto campus, APD usually notifies UPD.

University Police has the responsibility of responding to, and summoning the necessary resources, to mitigate, investigate, and document any situation that may cause a significant emergency or dangerous situation. In addition, University Police has a responsibility to respond to such incidents to confirm or determine if the situation does in fact pose a significant emergency or dangerous situation/threat to the community. If that is the case, UPD and/or IMT will immediately notify the campus communities or the appropriate segment of the communities, upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all students or employees occurring on campus. UPD and/or IMT will take into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system, unless notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

Due to the immediacy and nature of the incident, UPD, University Advancement, and/or the Emergency Management Office may initiate the UA Alerts notification system and send immediate notifications to the campus communities or the appropriate segment of the communities. The initial notification may occur through the UA Alerts notification system which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone, or email; or via UAA email. Face to face communication may also be used in the event of an emergency on campus.  Students and employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. To update your contact information in UA Alerts, go to uaalert.alaska.edu.

As soon as is practical, UPD contacts members of IMT. If UPD has not already made an emergency notification, the IMT will determine who should be notified (i.e. the appropriate segment(s) of the UA community) and the content of the notification.

After the initial notification, the IMT may issue subsequent updates/follow-up messages using the previously identified communication methods. The IMT will determine the content of subsequent updates. University Advancement may also post subsequent notifications on the Anchorage campus Twitter and/or Facebook webpage at twitter.com/uaanchorage or facebook.com/UAAnchorage, the Anchorage campus webpage at www.uaa.alaska.edu, and/or the Anchorage campus information line at 907-786-1800. IMT will issue an all clear notification using any of the previously identified communication methods.

The local news media may be utilized to disseminate emergency information to members of the larger community, including neighbors, parents and other interested parties. The larger community can also access emergency information via the University of Alaska Anchorage homepage and/or social media.

If there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus, an institution must follow its emergency notification procedures. An institution that follows its emergency notification procedures is not required to issue a timely warning based on the same circumstances; however, the institution must provide adequate follow-up information to the community as needed.

The IMT may issue subsequent notifications to specific areas on a campus, one entire campus, or multiple campuses. UPD or their agents may post flyers at each entrance to academic buildings affected by the emergency. Likewise, Residence Life may post flyers at the entrance to residence halls, the front door of each Templewood apartment, and/or the entrance to each Main Apartment Complex stairwell that is affected by the emergency. UPD may use public address systems in Rasmuson Hall, the Library, and the Student Union. UPD may make announcements using speakers on patrol cars or by walking around campus and using megaphones.

University Advancement is responsible for issuing subsequent notifications and disseminating emergency information to the larger Anchorage community by contacting local media, including television and radio stations and appropriate agencies.

General Evacuation Procedures

At the sound of a fire alarm or if you are instructed to evacuate, leave your work area immediately and proceed to the nearest exit, and leave the building. If you are the first to recognize a fire situation, activate the alarm, evacuate to a safe location using the nearest exit, and notify UPD (907-786-1120) Police Emergency or dial 911. 

  1. Remain Calm 
  2. Do NOT use Elevators, Use the Stairs. 
  3. Assist the physically impaired. If any individual is unable to exit without using an elevator, secure a safe location near a stairwell, and immediately inform UPD or the responding Fire Dept. of the individual's location.
  4. Proceed to a clear area at least 50 feet from the building. Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles. 
  5. Do not re-enter the building.

In the event that a building needs to be evacuated, the occupants will be directed to the emergency assembly area by building safety coordinators. IMT may provide information regarding where events scheduled for that building have been relocated. In the event that an entire campus needs to be evacuated, the IMT may recommend to the Chancellor to close that campus. In the event of a campus-wide evacuation, on campus residents would be asked to stay with relatives or friends in Anchorage. If on campus residents do not have local relatives or friends off campus, University Housing will coordinate alternate housing for on campus residents. In the event of an emergency, the IMT may ask everyone to "shelter-in-place." Information on what it means to "shelter-in-place" is discussed in the following section of this report.

The IMT makes safety announcements and reminders to the University community throughout the year. When the IMT needs to inform the campus community about school closures due to snow or other safety issues, notifications may be made using the following forms of communication:

  • UAA webpage (www.uaa.alaska.edu)
  • Campus Switchboard at 907-786-1800 and press 2
  • Personal notifications via email, telephone, and text messages from UA Alerts uaalert.alaska.edu
  • UAA Institutional Social Media
  • Local Media Outlets: print, television, and radio
  • Your UAA-assigned email inbox

The Department of Environment Health & Safety / Risk Management regularly schedules tests of our emergency plans. In the past, the Anchorage campus has invited APD, AFD, local hospitals, Joint Base Elmendorf Fort Richardson, and Alaska Pacific University to participate to test the coordination of multiple agencies to address an emergency. These tests, which may be announced or unannounced, are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution. 

In the past few years, the Anchorage campus has conducted tests on earthquakes, plane crashes, hazardous materials, terrorism, and active shooter scenarios. In every planned test, there is an after-action review that is written and distributed to the IMT and administration. The Department of Environment Health & Safety / Risk Management keeps a description of the tests including dates and times of the tests and whether they were announced or unannounced.

Once a year, campus building evacuation drills occur across the entire Anchorage and Aviation Technology Complex campuses. At these events, UAA's Emergency Manager hands out flyers explaining to students and employees what to do in the event of a building evacuation. The Emergency Manager keeps a description of each test including a description of the exercise, the date and time, and whether the drill was announced or unannounced. The Emergency Manager summarizes the results of the evacuation tests for each building and forwards a report to each Building Manager. To see the evacuation results for a particular building on campus, see the Building Manager. For a current list of Building Managers, see https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/about/administrative-services/departments/facilities-campus-services/building-managers.cshtml

In coordination with at least one test per calendar year, the campuses will publish their emergency response and evacuation procedures by including a link to the Emergency Operations Plan in a Seawolf Daily announcement. UAA's Emergency Operations Plan and family of documents includes single-page, incident action plans for specific topics, i.e., fire alarms, pandemic illnesses, and suspicious packages or substances. For further information regarding UAA's emergency response preparedness, please visit www.uaa.alaska.edu/emergency.

JBER - Elmendorf Extension and JBER - Richardson Extension

On the military installation, the military emergency services are the default agency with responsibility for responding to and summoning the necessary resources to mitigate, investigate, and document any situation that may cause a significant emergency or dangerous situation. Access to the military installation may be limited while military services are responding to a reported emergency. UAA has no jurisdiction for emergency response on the military installation. To learn more about the emergency response procedures for the military installation, please contact the 673d Security Forces Squadron at 907-552-7070.

To report an emergency, call 911 and the Anchorage Police Dispatch will route the call to JBER Emergency Services. The non-emergency number for 673d Security Forces Squadron is 907-552-7070. After making a 911 call to JBER Emergency Services, it is important to notify University Police at 907-786-1120 as local responders may not notify the university that they are responding to an emergency on the military installation.

For the Kodiak High School Extension, primary issuance of emergency notifications for that location will come from the Kodiak School District Office.

At Kodiak College, the College Director or designee should be contacted at the first indication of an emergency. The College Director may be notified by calling 907-486-1220 or visiting the Director's Office in Room 104 of the Benny Benson Building. In the evening hours, the Maintenance Technician should be notified. The Maintenance Technician may be notified by calling 907-310-0139 or 907-539-2537 or visiting the Facilities Services Office in Room 134 of the Technology Center. Depending on the nature of the emergency, it may be necessary to contact 911 (e.g. Kodiak Police Department or Fire Department) first and then contact the College Director or designee. It is important to contact the College Director or designee because local emergency responders may not notify the College Director or designee that they are responding to an emergency on campus.

If Kodiak College has a confirmed case of a highly-communicable disease on campus, or Kodiak College has confirmation that an individual or individuals on campus have been exposed to persons who have tested positive for a highly-communicable disease, such conditions would very likely warrant issuance of an Emergency Notification. 

The College Director or designee has the responsibility of responding to, and summoning the necessary resources, to mitigate, investigate, and document any situation that may cause a significant emergency or dangerous situation. In addition, the College Director or designee has a responsibility to respond to such incidents to confirm or determine if the situation does in fact pose a significant emergency or dangerous situation/threat to the community. If that is the case, the College Director or designee will immediately notify the campus community or the appropriate segment of the community, upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all students or employees occurring on campus. The College Director or designee will take into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system, unless notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. This notification may occur via email, verbally, and/or through the UA Alerts notification system which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone, or email. Face to face communication may also be used in the event of an emergency on campus. Students and employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. To update your contact information in UA Alerts, go to uaalert.alaska.edu. Staff and faculty may also be called personally.

As soon as is practical, the College Director or designee will call together members of the Kodiak College Incident Management Team (IMT) to help manage the emergency. If the College Director or designee has not already made an emergency notification, the Kodiak College IMT will determine who should be notified (i.e. the appropriate segment(s) of the UA community), decide the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system.

The Kodiak College IMT will notify and may consult with the Anchorage campus Incident Management Team. The Kodiak College IMT has both the decision-making and financial authority to address emergencies on campus. The Kodiak College IMT may ask the Kodiak College Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT) to help respond to the emergency. The CERT is a volunteer group of faculty and staff members who receive periodic training on how to be a first responder including fire-fighting, triage, first-aid, and light search-and-rescue. The CERT can be contacted by calling the College Director at 907-486-1220.

After the initial notification, the Kodiak College IMT may issue subsequent notifications/follow-up messages to Kodiak College via email or phone. CERT members may post flyers at each entrance to buildings affected by the emergency. CERT members may walk around campus to classrooms, offices, and parking lots to make verbal announcements. The College Director or designee may post announcements on the Kodiak College website at www.koc.alaska.edu. The College Director or designee may also disseminate emergency information to the larger Kodiak community via contacting the local radio station to notify nearby community members who may be in danger. The larger community can also access emergency information via the Kodiak College homepage and/or social media.

If there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus, an institution must follow its emergency notification procedures. An institution that follows its emergency notification procedures is not required to issue a timely warning based on the same circumstances; however, the institution must provide adequate follow-up information to the community as needed.

At the sound of a fire alarm or if you are instructed to evacuate, leave your work area immediately and proceed to the nearest exit, leave the building. If you are the first to recognize a fire situation, activate the alarm, evacuate to a safe location using the nearest exit, and notify 911.

  1. Remain Calm
  2. Do NOT use Elevators, Use the Stairs.
  3. Assist the physically impaired. If any individual is unable to exit without using an elevator, secure a safe location near a stairwell, and immediately inform the responding fire department of the individual's location.
  4. Proceed with evacuation to the Emergency Assembly Area (far north end of the main parking lot). Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  5. Do not re-enter the building until an all clear has been established.

In the event that a building needs to be evacuated, the occupants will be directed to the emergency assembly area. The Kodiak College IMT may provide information regarding where events scheduled for that building have been relocated. In the event that the entire Kodiak College campus needs to be evacuated, the Kodiak College IMT may indicate the campus is closed. In the event of an emergency, the Kodiak College IMT may ask everyone to "shelter-in-place."

Kodiak College regularly schedules tests of the Kodiak College Emergency Response Plan (ERP). The Kodiak College ERP contains plans for fires, explosions, earthquakes, active shooters, bomb threats, bear encounters, power outages, medical emergencies, hazardous materials, lockdown orders, and campus evacuations. These tests, which may be announced or unannounced, are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution. The College Director maintains a description of each test including a description of the exercise, the date and time of the test, and whether it was announced or unannounced. In coordination with at least one test per calendar year, Kodiak College will send an email to the campus community that contains a link to the Kodiak College ERP.

Matanuska-Susitna College

Matanuska-Susitna College (MSC) maintains an Emergency Response Plan as outlined in the corresponding MSC Manual for the Emergency Response Plan.  This manual describes the responsibilities of campus units during emergencies. This manual also outlines incident priorities, campus organization, and specific responsibilities of particular units or positions.

Mat-Su College, as a campus within UAA, is responsible for developing emergency response and continuity of operations plans for their areas and staff. These operational plans are developed in consultation with both UAA and UA Statewide leadership. Campus emergency management provides resources and guidance for the development of these emergency response and continuity of operations plans.

In the event of an emergency at MSC, contact 911. After contact with 911, and/or in the event of less urgent situations, contact the College Director or designee. During the evening hours, Physical Plant personnel should be contacted after calling 911. The College Director or designee should always be notified of all significant problems within twenty-four hours, if not sooner. Contact information is as follows: 

  • College Director's Office 907-745-9726, Jalmar Kerttula Building (JKB) 101
  • Physical Plant 907-745-9789

In the unlikely event that neither the College Director’s office nor the Physical Plant can be notified in a timely manner, then UAA’s University Police Department (UPD) should be notified by calling 907-786-1120. 

If MSC has a confirmed case of a highly-communicable disease on campus, or MSC has confirmation that an individual or individuals on campus have been exposed to person(s) who have tested positive for a highly-communicable disease, such conditions would very likely warrant issuance of an Emergency Notification. 

The College Director or designee has the responsibility of responding to and summoning the necessary resources to mitigate, investigate, and document any situation that may, or does, cause a significant emergency or dangerous situation. In addition, the College Director or designee has a responsibility to respond to such incidents to confirm or determine if the situation does in fact pose a significant emergency or dangerous situation/threat to the campus or immediate community. If that is the case, the College Director or designee will immediately notify the campus community or the appropriate segment of the community, upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all students or employees occurring on campus. The College Director or designee will take into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system, unless notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. This notification may occur via UAA email, or through the UA Alerts notification system which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone, or email. Face to face communication may also be used in the event of an emergency on campus. Students and employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. To update your contact information in UA Alerts, go to uaalert.alaska.edu.

As soon as is practical, the College Director or designee will assemble members of the MSC Incident Management Team (IMT) who will assist the College Director to manage the emergency. MSC IMT members include the College Director, Physical Plant Coordinator, Director of Academic Affairs, Director of Administrative Services, Director of Student Services, IS Manager, Assistant to the Director, Accounting Supervisor, Library Director, Learning Center Manager, and Theater Director. If the College Director or designee has not already made an emergency notification, the MSC IMT will determine who should be notified (i.e., the appropriate segment(s) of the UA community), decide the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system.

The College Director, Director of Academic Affairs, Director of Student Services, or the Theater Director, who are members of the MSC IMT as listed in the manual for Emergency Response Plan, will notify and consult with the Anchorage campus Incident Management Team on Clery reportable crimes. The MSC IMT has both the decision-making and financial authority needed to address emergencies on campus. The MSC IMT may ask the MSC Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT), as listed within the Emergency Response Plan Manual, to help respond to an emergency. The CERT can be contacted by calling the College Director’s Office, 907-745-9726. The MSC IMT meets as needed during Executive Staff meetings that occur twice a month. Annually the MSC IMT meets to review and revise as necessary this policy and the manual for the Emergency Response Plan. 

After the initial notification, the MSC IMT may issue subsequent notifications/follow-up messages to the MSC community via announcements on the MSC website: www.matsu.alaska.edu. The MSC IMT will determine the content of subsequent notifications. MSC IMT members may post flyers at each entrance to buildings affected by the emergency or walk around campus and make verbal announcements. The College Director may also disseminate emergency information to the larger MSC community by contacting the homeowners association of the subdivision adjacent to the college, contacting the Borough, notifying the local media, and/or enlisting the help of the Alaska State Troopers to notify individuals affected by the emergency. The larger community can also access emergency information via the MSC homepage and/or social media.

If there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus, the institution will follow its emergency notification procedures. The institution that follows its emergency notification procedures is not required to issue a timely warning based on the same circumstances; however, the institution must provide adequate follow-up information to the community as needed.

The procedures for the following incidences are detailed within the manual for the Emergency Response Plan: 

  • Fire
  • Explosions 
  • Earthquakes
  • Bomb Threats
  • Power Outages
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Hazardous Material Conditions
  • Criminal Activity
  • Criminal Trespass
  • Threats
  • Domestic Violence Situations
  • Active Shooter
  • Deaths on or Near Campus
  • Wildlife & Animal Incident
  • Suicide Threat
  • Volcano

At the sound of a fire alarm or if you are instructed to evacuate, leave your work area immediately and proceed to the nearest exit, and leave the building. If you are the first to recognize a fire situation, activate the alarm, evacuate to a safe location using the nearest exit, and notify the Alaska State Troopers (907-745-2131) Police Emergency or dial 911. 

  1. Remain Calm 
  2. Do NOT use Elevators, Use the Stairs. 
  3. Assist the physically impaired. If any individual is unable to exit without using an elevator, secure a safe location near a stairwell, and immediately inform the police or the responding fire department of the individual's location.
  4. Proceed to a clear area at least 50 feet from the building. Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  5. Do not re-enter the building.

In the event that a building must be evacuated, the occupants will be directed to the emergency assembly area. The MSC IMT may provide information regarding where events scheduled for that building have been relocated. In the event that the entire campus needs to be evacuated, the MSC IMT may indicate the campus is closed. In the event of an emergency, the MSC IMT may ask everyone to shelter-in-place.

MSC regularly schedules tests of the MSC emergency plans. These tests, which may be announced or unannounced, are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution. The Physical Plant Coordinator maintains a description of each test including a description of the exercise, the date and time of the test, and whether it was announced or unannounced. In coordination with at least one test per calendar year, MSC will send an email to the MSC community with a summary of the MSC emergency response plan. Summaries of the emergency response plan are also handed out annually to students and employees in conjunction with these tests.

Prince William Sound College

Prince William Sound College (PWSC) maintains an Emergency Operations Plan that outlines responsibilities of campus units during emergencies. This plan outlines incident priorities, campus organization and specific responsibilities of particular units or positions.

PWSC units are responsible for developing emergency response and continuity of operations plans for their areas and staff. Campus emergency management provides resources and guidance for the development of these plans.

At Prince William Sound College, the College Director or designee should be contacted at the first indication of an emergency. The College Director may be notified by calling 907-834-1662 or visiting Room 141B in the main campus building. Depending on the nature of the emergency, it may be necessary to phone 911 first and then contact the College Director or designee. However, if you call 911, it is still important to contact the College Director or designee because local emergency responders may not notify the College Director or designee that they are responding to an emergency on campus. In the evening hours, please call 911 first, and then notify PWSC administration by calling 907-834-1606. The Housing Manager may also be contacted by calling 907-834-1634 during business hours or after hours through the RA on call at 907-831-6032.

If PWSC has a confirmed case of a highly-communicable disease on campus, or PWSC has confirmation that an individual or individuals on campus have been exposed to persons who have tested positive for a highly-communicable disease, such conditions would very likely warrant issuance of an Emergency Notification. 

The College Director or designee has the responsibility of responding to, and summoning the necessary resources, to mitigate, investigate, and document any situation that may cause a significant emergency or dangerous situation. In addition, the College Director or designee has a responsibility to respond to such incidents to confirm or determine if the situation does in fact pose a significant emergency or dangerous situation/threat to the community. If that is the case, the College Director or designee will immediately notify the campus community or the appropriate segment of the community, upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all students or employees occurring on campus. The College Director or designee will take into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system, unless notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. This notification may occur via PWSC email or through the UA Alerts notification system which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone, or email. In addition, the PWSC Incident Management Team (IMT) will initiate a "phone tree" system to attempt to notify employees by email, phone, and/or text message as soon as possible. Face to face communication may also be used in the event of an emergency on campus. Students and employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. To update your contact information in UA Alerts, go to uaalert.alaska.edu

As soon as it is practical, the College Director or designee will assemble members of the PWSC IMT who will assist the College Director to manage the emergency. PWSC IMT members include the College Director, Assistant to the Director, Assistant Director of Student Affairs, Administrative Services Director, and Assistant Director of Academic Affairs. If the College Director or designee has not already made an emergency notification, the PWSC IMT will determine who should be notified (i.e. the appropriate segment(s) of the UA community), decide the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system.

The College Director or designee will notify the UAA Incident Management Team by contacting UAA UPD at 907-786-1120. The PWSC IMT has both the decision-making and financial authority needed to address emergencies on campus. The PWSC IMT meets once a semester for training and to review campus emergency plans.

After the initial notification, the PWSC IMT or their agents may issue subsequent notifications/follow-up messages to the PWSC campus community. They may post flyers at each entrance to academic buildings affected by the emergency. The College Director and Assistant to the Director may also disseminate emergency information to the larger Valdez community by contacting local media including radio stations and appropriate agencies. The larger community can also access emergency information via the Prince William Sound College homepage and/or social media.

If there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus, an institution must follow its emergency notification procedures. An institution that follows its emergency notification procedures is not required to issue a timely warning based on the same circumstances; however, the institution must provide adequate follow-up information to the community as needed.

At the sound of a fire alarm or if you are instructed to evacuate, leave your work area immediately and proceed to the nearest exit, and leave the building. If you are the first to recognize a fire situation, activate the alarm, evacuate to a safe location using the nearest exit, and notify 911. 

  1. Remain calm. 
  2. Use the exit stairs if you are on the second floor of the Health and Fitness Center. 
  3. Assist the physically impaired. If any individual is unable to exit, secure a safe location, and immediately inform the Valdez Police Department or Valdez Fire Department of the individual's location. For example, the Health and Fitness Center area of refuge located at the second floor emergency exit would be an example of a safe location to wait for help. 
  4. If at the main campus, proceed to the assembly area located in the south parking lot located at 303 Lowe Street. Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  5. If at student housing or the Facilities Shop/Warehouse, proceed to the assembly area located in the south parking lot of the Facilities Shop/Warehouse located at 153 Pioneer Drive. Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  6. If at the Millwright Shop located at 236 Fidalgo Drive, proceed to a clear area at least 150 feet from the building. Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  7. Do not re-enter the building.

In the event that a building needs to be evacuated, the occupants will be directed to the emergency assembly area. The PWSC IMT may provide information regarding where events scheduled for that building have been relocated. In the event that the entire PWSC campus needs to be evacuated, the PWSC IMT may indicate the campus is closed. In the event of a campus-wide evacuation, on campus residents would be asked to stay with relatives or friends that live in or around Valdez. If on-campus residents do not have local relatives or friends off campus, the Housing Manager will coordinate alternative housing for on-campus residents. In the event of an emergency, the PWSC IMT may ask everyone to "shelter-in-place."

The PWSC IMT and the Administrative Services Director make safety announcements and reminders to the College community throughout the year. When the PWSC IMT needs to inform the campus community about campus closures due to snow or other safety issues, notifications will be made using the following forms of communication:

  • PWSC Website (www.pwsc.alaska.edu)
  • PWSC page on Facebook
  • Personal notifications via email, telephone, and text messages from UA Alerts
  • Radio stations KVAK 93.3 FM and KCHU 770 AM

PWSC regularly schedules tests of the PWSC emergency plans. These tests, which may be announced or unannounced, are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution. Both College employees and students are invited to participate in emergency preparedness training exercises once per year. In every planned exercise, there is an after-action review that is written and distributed to the administration. The Administrative Services Director keeps a description of each test, including a description of the exercise, the date and time of the test, and whether it was announced or unannounced. In coordination with at least one test per calendar year, PWSC will publish its emergency response and evacuation procedures by including a link to the Emergency Operations Plan in a campus-wide email announcement. For further information regarding PWSC's emergency response preparedness, please visit www.pwsc.alaska.edu.

PWSC Cordova Extension

At the Cordova extension center, the Extension Campus Coordinator or designee should be contacted at the first indication of an emergency. The Cordova Extension Campus Coordinator can be reached by calling 907-424-7598. Depending on the nature of the emergency, it may be necessary to phone 911 first and then contact the Campus Coordinator. However, if you call 911, it is still important to contact the Campus Coordinator because local emergency responders may not notify the Director that they are responding to an emergency on campus.

The Extension Campus Coordinator or designee will notify the IMT on the Valdez Campus to assist in managing the emergency. The Extension Campus Coordinator or the IMT will immediately notify the appropriate segment of the community, upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all students or employees occurring at that site. The IMT and/or Extension Campus Coordinator will take into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system, unless notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. This notification will be communicated in person due to the small size of each building. See the Valdez Campus section above for a description of the role and response plan of the IMT for PWSC.

Subsequent notifications may be made via KCHU 88.1 FM radio station, by email, or be conducted by other means available within the smaller community.

Shelter-in-Place Procedures - What it Means to "Shelter-in-Place"

If an incident occurs and the buildings or areas nearby become unsafe, or if the air outdoors becomes dangerous due to toxic or irritating substances, it is usually safer to stay indoors, because leaving the area may expose you to that danger. Thus, to "shelter-in-place" means to make a shelter of the building that you are in, and with a few adjustments, this location can be made even safer and more comfortable until it is safe to go outside.

Basic "Shelter-in-Place" Guidance

If an incident occurs and the building you are in is not damaged, stay inside (seeking an interior room) until you are told it is safe to come out. Seal doors and window openings to keep bad air out. If the building is damaged, take your personal belongings (purse, wallet, Wolfcard) and follow the evacuation procedures for your building (close your door, proceed to the nearest exit, and use the stairs instead of the elevators). Once you have evacuated, seek shelter at the nearest University building quickly. If police or fire department personnel are on the scene, follow their directions.

How You Will Know to "Shelter-in-Place"

A shelter-in-place notification may come from several sources, including University Police (UPD), Housing or Residence Life staff members, other University employees, Anchorage Police (APD), or other authorities.

How to "Shelter-in-Place"

If you receive a notification to shelter-in-place, do the following:

  1. If you are inside, stay where you are. Collect any emergency shelter-in-place supplies and a telephone to be used in the case of emergency. If you are outdoors, proceed into the closest building quickly or follow instructions from emergency personnel on the scene.
  2. Locate a room to shelter inside. It should be:
    • An interior room;
    • Above ground level; and
    • Without windows or with the least number of windows. If there is a large group of people inside a building, several rooms may be necessary.
  3. Shut and lock all windows (tighter seal) and close exterior doors.
  4. Close vents to ventilation systems if you are able. (University staff will turn off ventilation as quickly as possible.)

Building Access, Safety, and Maintenance of Campus Facilities

Anchorage and Aviation Technology Complex Campuses

Most campus administrative and educational buildings and facilities are accessible to members of the community, guests, and visitors. During the academic year, normal business hours are Monday through Friday, while limited hours are maintained on Saturday and Sunday. During semester breaks, hours of access may be greatly reduced. During summer breaks and semester breaks, the University often undertakes maintenance and renewal projects that might interfere with building and parking access. For University observed holidays, most buildings are closed to all but approved for access by employees and students.

The University Police (UPD) maintains security of all campus buildings, including residential facilities. UPD locks and unlocks buildings as scheduled by the Building Access Policy.

Security Awareness Programs

Anchorage, Aviation Technology Complex, JBER - Elmendorf Extension, and JBER - Richardson Extension

The University of Alaska provides general safety education to incoming students at New Student Orientation and Campus Kick-Off, a carnival event at the beginning of fall semester that welcomes students to campus. Alaska Middle College School students are provided safety education at their annual orientation in August at the Anchorage campus. The Student Handbook is available to all students and includes multiple tips and resources for students about safety. The Student Handbook is available online at catalog.uaa.alaska.edu/handbook.

Last year through MyUA all employees completed a Title IX: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination Prevention for Faculty and Staff training or refresher. There are also Anti-bullying in the Workplace, and Injury and Illness Prevention modules that are available to employees, but not required on an annual basis.

Residence Life takes extra steps to educate students about safety. Highlights of these steps include:

Last year UAA Residence Life offered the following security awareness programs:

  • 53 community meetings led by professional and student staff members at various locations throughout the year. The initial, mandatory community meetings review policies, community living standards, and safety while the subsequent meetings allow students to connect with staff, review policies, go over safety concerns, and ask questions.
  • 2 Welcome Home Week Drug & Alcohol safety programs to familiarize residents with residential and school policies, and provide opportunity for discussion about health risks and making safe choices
  • 14 additional drug and alcohol awareness-themed programs offered throughout the academic year, designed to educate students about university policies, health risks connected with alcohol and drugs, and to encourage students to make safe choices.
  • 2 Welcome Home Week Animal Safety programs that provided an overview of animal safety on and around the campus and greater Anchorage community
  • 2 Welcome Home Week Winter and Vehicle Safety programs that provided an opportunity to discuss winter preparations and considerations when on the road, as well as vehicle safety to avoid break-ins, vehicle damage, and theft.
  • 1 Welcome Home Week Seawolf Safety program and supporting social media campaign to help educate residents about the safety features of the residential campus and tips about the safety in the Alaskan environment.
  • 4 print and/or social media campaigns that included how to build a basic safety kit, a spikies campaign encouraging students to pick up a free pair of winter cleats, a vehicle theft/break-in safety campaign and a fireplace safety card for students who live in a residence with a fireplace.

Last year, the Alcohol, Drug, and Wellness Educator hosted 28 tables and prevention programs including bystander intervention, personal safety, sexual assault prevention, alcohol and drug safety, and suicide prevention as part of Safety Awareness Month, National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, Spring Break Safety, and other timely virtual events as well as passive online education through social media channels and emails. All events were designed to educate students about personal safety and to encourage them to make their community a safer place. Events of this nature were held monthly throughout the year to engage students, faculty, and staff in the form of trainings, distribution of informational materials, and events. In these programs, students and employees were encouraged to be responsible for their own safety and the safety of others. All programming was open to students, faculty and staff except a few presentations that were requested in specific classes.

The Athletics department provided student athletes with information regarding safety during their annual orientation and regular team meetings. All the materials covered during the orientation and gatherings were also included in the UAA Student-Athlete Handbook. The topics included campus drug and alcohol policies, reporting a crime, the Silent Witness program, hazing, mental health and reporting injury and illness. All Athletic students were required to complete the annual Title IX training.

UAA’s Emergency Manager (EM) has focused most efforts during this period on conducting emergency exercises in accordance with CLERY requirements. Upcoming exercises will be focused on how UAA would recover from an Active Shooter / Active Aggressor event. These exercises are conducted at UAA’s main campus, and in conjunction with the institution’s community campuses.

The EM served as the incident liaison between UAA and multiple government agencies and command posts, including the community campuses. The EM actively participates in the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). Provides updates on UAA’s emergency management efforts, and builds partnerships among other community leaders.

The EM continues to monitor Covid-19 community levels and develops weekly reports for UAA stakeholders. In addition, EM actively monitors the need to procure and distribute Covid-19 PPE and testing kits to UAA stakeholders.

Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking

Introduction

The University of Alaska Anchorage prohibits the offenses of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking (as defined by the Clery Act) and reaffirms its commitment to maintaining a campus environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of all members of the University community. Toward that end, the University of Alaska Anchorage issues this statement of policy to inform the campus community of our programs to address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking as well as the procedures for University administrative action in cases of alleged domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, which will be followed regardless of whether the incident occurs on or off campus when it is reported to a University official.

  • Dating Violence: Alaska State law does not currently include a specific legal definition of dating violence. However, Alaska's definition of domestic violence covers individuals who are in current and former dating relationships and therefore incorporates acts of dating violence into the general definition of domestic violence.
  • Sexual Assault: Under Alaska state law, sexual penetration and sexual contact of another person without consent is sexual assault and can occur under a variety of circumstances, including:
    • Engaging in sexual penetration or contact with someone without consent of the person;

Consent: Alaska State law does not currently include a definition for consent. However, Alaska defines the following terms including "incapacitated," "mentally incapable," and "without consent" as related to sexual assault:

      • Incapacitated: temporarily incapable of appraising the nature of one's own conduct or physically unable to express unwillingness to act;
      • Mentally Incapable: suffering from a mental disease or defect that renders the person incapable of understanding the nature or consequences of the person's conduct, including the potential for harm to that person;
      • Without Consent: that a person, under the totality of the circumstances surrounding the offense, there was not a freely given, reversible agreement specific to the conduct at issue; in this paragraph, “freely given” means agreement to cooperate in the act was positively expressed by word or action.

The complete definitions of the above terms are found in Alaska Statute 11.41.470, as noted above.

Age of Consent: Under Alaska state law, the age of consent for sexual activity depends on the age of both partners. Generally, an individual 16 years old or older can engage in sexual activity with an older participant provided the older participant is not in a position of authority over the younger participant and is not the younger participant's legal guardian. In addition, depending on the age and relationship of the participants, teenagers may not be able to provide legal consent. In summary, an individual who agrees with any of the following statements may not be capable of providing consent, and a crime may have occurred:

      • I am under 18 and the other person has authority over me (coach, teacher, boss).
      • I am a teen and there is a 3-year or more age difference between us.

The complete provisions regarding the age of consent are found in Alaska Statutes 11.41.434 – 11.41.445 and 11.41.455, as listed immediately above. 

  • Stalking: Under Alaska law, it is illegal for another person to knowingly engage in a course of conduct that recklessly places you or someone else in fear of death or physical injury to either yourself or a member of your family. A course of conduct is repeated acts of "non-consensual contact" that is initiated or continued without that person's consent, or after someone has expressed a desire to cease contact, or is outside of the scope of consent given by that person. Some examples include: 
      • following or appearing within the sight of that person;
      • approaching or confronting that person in a public place or on private property;
      • appearing at the workplace or residence of that person;
      • entering onto or remaining on property owned, leased, or occupied by that person;
      • contacting that person by telephone;
      • sending mail or electronic communications to that person;
      • placing an object on, or delivering an object to, property owned, leased, or occupied by that person;
      • utilizing social media to monitor an individual via false pretenses;
      • following or monitoring that person with a global positioning device or similar technological means; or
      • using, installing or attempting to use or install a device for observing, recording, or photographing events occurring in the residence, vehicle, or workplace used by that person, or on the personal telephone or computer used by that person.

University of Alaska Definitions

Definitions Under BOR Chapter 01.04

Regents' Policy and University Regulation (BOR) Chapter 01.04 defines various terms used to identify forms of prohibited conduct under the University's Sex and Gender-Based Discrimination Under Title IX Policy.

Domestic violence includes verbal or physical assault, violating a protective order, terroristic threatening, burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, harassment, arson, criminally negligent burning committed by a current or former spouse or intimate partner of the complainant, by a respondent with whom the complainant shares a child in common, by a respondent who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the complainant as a spouse or intimate partner or as a roommate, by a respondent similarly situated to a spouse of the complainant, or by any other respondent against an adult or youth complainant who is protected from that respondent’s acts under the domestic or family violence laws of Alaska.

Dating violence is violence committed by a respondent: a. who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the complainant; and b. where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on a consideration of the following factors: 

  1. The length of the relationship; 
  2. The type of relationship; and 
  3. The frequency of interaction between the persons involved in the relationship

Sexual assault means an offense that meets any of the following definitions:

  1. “Rape” is non-consensual vaginal or anal penetration, no matter how slight, of a person with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, including instances where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of their age or incapacitation.   
  2. “Fondling” is the touching of the breasts, buttocks, or genitals of another person for the purpose of sexual gratification without the consent of the victim, including instances where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of their age or because of incapacitation. Fondling can occur over or under clothing.
  3. “Incest” is nonforcible sexual intercourse between persons who are related to each other within the degrees wherein marriage is prohibited by law of the state or territory where the act occurred. 
  4. “Statutory Rape” is nonforcible sexual intercourse with a person who is under the statutory age of consent in the state or territory where the conduct occurred.

Consent* is the voluntary, informed, un-coerced agreement through words or actions freely given, that a reasonable person would interpret as a willingness to participate in mutually agreed-upon sexual acts. Consensual sexual activity happens when each partner willingly and affirmatively chooses to participate. A person who is incapacitated cannot consent.

The following terms relate to the University of Alaska definition of Consent:

Coercion is the use of pressure to compel another person to engage in any sexual activity against that person’s will. Coercion may include express or implied threats of physical, emotional, or other harm. Coercion invalidates consent.

Force is the unwelcome use or threat (whether express or implied) of physical violence to compel another person to engage in any sexual activity against that person’s will. Force invalidates consent.

Incapacitation is when an individual is in a state or condition in which they are unable to make sound decisions. This can be due to sleep, age, unconsciousness, alcohol, drug use, or mental and/or other disability. For example, someone who is unable to articulate what, how, when, where, and/or with whom the person desires a sexual act to take place is incapacitated.

Stalking means engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to either fear for their safety or the safety of others; or suffer substantial emotional distress.

*The University of Alaska defines Consent for purposes of making a determination if the University's policy prohibiting sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, has been violated.

For additional offenses and definitions of applicable gender-based and sexual misconduct terms, please see BOR 01.04 (specifically R01.04.010.A and R01.04.010.C).

Definitions Under BOR Chapter 09.02

BOR 09.02 outlines Student Rights and Responsibilities. It provides a non-exhaustive list of conduct prohibited by the Student Code of Conduct that includes definitions of stalking and relationship violence, covering both domestic violence and dating violence. 

Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive, controlling behavior in which one intimate partner uses physical violence, coercion, threats, intimidation and emotional, psychological, electronic media or economic abuse to control and change the behavior of the other partner. 

Dating violence is behavior(s) used to exert power and control over a dating partner. Examples of power and control may come in the form of emotional, verbal, financial, physical, or electronic media abuse.

Stalking is the repetitive and/or menacing pursuit, following, or interference with the peace and/or safety of an individual(s). 

Relationship violence is violence or abuse by a person on another person with whom they are engaged in an intimate relationship, including domestic violence and dating violence. 

How to Be an Active Bystander

If you or someone else is in immediate danger, dial 911.

The University encourages the UAA community to become active bystanders throughout campus. The University wants members of the community to step in or speak up to defuse potentially harmful situations of potential sexual or relationship violence.

Active Bystander Process:
  • Identify situations where sexual violence may occur.
  • Recognize that you can help.
  • Intervene in situations where consent cannot be given.
Questions to Ask During the Situation:
  • How can I keep myself safe?
  • Are there others I can call upon for help?
  • Are resources available: people, phone, information?
Decisions to Take Action:
  • If you see something - do something.
  • You can make a difference.
  • Choose a safe intervention that matches your skill set.
How to Intervene Safely:
  • Use DELEGATION: Call the police or someone else in authority.
  • Tell another person. Being with others is a good idea when a situation looks dangerous.
  • Cause a DISTRACTION by asking for the time, pretending you know the person, or making something up.
  • Get involved with DIRECT ACTION. Ask a person in a potentially dangerous situation if they want to leave and then make sure that they get home safely.
  • Another strategy is to DELAY.  If you can’t intervene in the moment, you can check in with the person being harassed afterwards to see if you can do anything to support them after the fact.
  • One final strategy is to DOCUMENT the situation by recording it or saving copies of social media communications. Remember to always ask the person targeted what they want to do with the footage and never post it online or use it without their permission.
  • Ask a friend to join you to check on the situation.
  • Believe someone who discloses sexual assault, abusive behavior, or experienced with stalking. Ask a victim if they are okay. Provide resources and a listening ear.
  • Refer to on or off campus resources listed in this document for support in health, counseling, or with legal assistance.

In sum, there are many ways to be an active bystander. Know your style of communication and make the determination of how you can be an active bystander with what is right for you.

UAA offers bystander intervention training to students, staff and faculty through the Student Health and Counseling Center (SHCC). The in-person Bringing in the Bystander training provides participants with skills to help them act when they see behavior that puts others at risk for violence victimization or perpetration. These skills include speaking out against rape myths and sexist language, supporting victims and intervening in potentially violent situations. The 70- to 90-minute training sessions are presented by Peer Health Educators who deliver the message of bystander intervention to other college students in a culturally relevant manner. During the pandemic, the SHCC is doing both in-person and virtual synchronous Bringing in the Bystander training sessions.

The Health Promotion Team also participates in the campus-wide Dating Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition for Change Committee, which meets monthly to organize and coordinate education and prevention events. Additional prevention programming uses social media messaging with the Student Health and Counseling Center’s Facebook and Website, and with Lavatory Lowdown, which involves eye-catching posters in restrooms developed in cooperation with the UAA Alcohol, Drug and Wellness Educator.

Risk Reduction

With no intent to victim blame and recognizing that only abusers are responsible for their abuse, the following are some strategies to reduce one's risk of sexual assault or harassment (adapted from Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network, www.rainn.org)

  1. Be aware of your surroundings. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you to find a way to get out of a bad situation.
  2. Try to avoid isolated areas. It is more difficult to get help if no one is around.
  3. Walk with purpose. Even if you don't know where you are going, act like you do.
  4. Trust your instincts. If a situation or location feels unsafe or uncomfortable, it probably isn't the best place to be. If you see something suspicious, contact law enforcement immediately (local authorities can be reached by calling 911 in most areas of the U.S.).
  5. Try not to load yourself down with packages or bags as this can make you appear more vulnerable.
  6. Make sure your cell phone is with you and charged and that you have cab money.
  7. Don't allow yourself to be isolated with someone you don't trust or someone you don't know.
  8. Avoid putting music headphones in both ears so that you can be more aware of your surroundings, especially if you are walking alone.
  9. When you go to a social gathering, go with a group of friends. Arrive together, check in with each other throughout the evening, and leave together. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you to find a way out of a bad situation.
  10. Watch out for your friends, and vice versa. If a friend seems out of it, is way too intoxicated for the amount of alcohol they've had, or is acting out of character, get him or her to a safe place immediately.
  11. Don't leave your drink unattended while talking, dancing, using the restroom, or making a phone call. If you've left your drink alone, just get a new one.
  12. Don't accept drinks from people you don't know or trust. If you choose to accept a drink, go with the person to the bar to order it, watch it being poured, and carry it yourself. At parties, don't drink from the punch bowls or other large, common open containers.
  13. If you suspect you or a friend has been drugged, contact law enforcement immediately (local authorities can be reached by calling 911 in most areas of the U.S.). Be explicit with doctors so they can give you the correct tests (you will need a urine test and possibly others).
  14. If you need to get out of an uncomfortable or scary situation here are some things that you can try:
    • Remember that being in this situation is not your fault. You did not do anything wrong, it is the person who is making you uncomfortable that is to blame.
    • Be true to yourself. Don't feel obligated to do anything you don't want to do. "I don't want to" is always a good enough reason. Do what feels right to you and what you are comfortable with.
    • Have a code word with your friends or family so that if you don't feel comfortable you can call them and communicate your discomfort without the person you are with knowing. Your friends or family can then come to get you or make up an excuse for you to leave.
    • Lie. If you don't want to hurt the person's feelings it is better to lie and make up a reason to leave than to stay and be uncomfortable, scared, or worse. Some excuses you could use are: needing to take care of a friend or family member, not feeling well, having somewhere else that you need to be, etc.
  15. Try to think of an escape route. How would you try to get out of the room? Where are the doors? Windows? Are there people around who might be able to help you? Is there an emergency phone nearby?
  16. If you and/or the other person have been drinking, you can say that you would rather wait until you both have your full judgment before doing anything you may regret later.
  17. Drink responsibly. If you choose to drink, know your limits. Low-risk choices include drinking no more than three drinks per day. When going out, utilize a sober buddy.

Prevention Programs

The University engages in comprehensive, intentional, and integrated programming, initiatives, strategies, and campaigns intended to end dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking that:

  1.   Are culturally relevant, inclusive of diverse communities and identities, sustainable, responsive to community needs, and informed by research, or assessed for value, effectiveness, or outcome; and
  2.   Consider environmental risk and protective factors as they occur on the individual, relationship, institutional, community, and societal levels.

Educational programming consists of primary prevention and awareness programs for all incoming students and new employees and ongoing awareness and prevention campaigns for students and employees and that includes:

  1. A statement that the University prohibits the crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking (as defined by the Clery Act);
  2. The definitions of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking according to any applicable jurisdictional definitions of these terms;
  3. What behavior and actions constitute consent, in reference to sexual activity, in the State of Alaska and the University of Alaska and the purposes for which that definition is used;
  4. A description of safe and positive options for bystander intervention. Bystander intervention means safe and positive options that may be carried out by an individual or individuals to prevent harm or intervene when there is a risk of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Bystander intervention includes recognizing situations of potential harm, understanding institutional structures and cultural conditions that facilitate violence, overcoming barriers to intervening, identifying safe and effective intervention options, and taking action to intervene;
  5. Information on risk reduction. Risk reduction means options designed to decrease perpetration and bystander inaction, and to increase empowerment for victims in order to promote safety and to help individuals and communities address conditions that facilitate violence;
  6. An overview of information contained in the annual security report in compliance with the Clery Act.  Such information includes information regarding: 
    1. procedures victims should follow if a crime of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking occurs (as described in “Procedures Victims Should Follow if a Crime of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking Occurs” elsewhere in this document)
    2. how the institution will protect the confidentiality of victims and other necessary parties (as described in “Assistance for Victims: Rights and Options” elsewhere in this document);
    3. existing counseling, health, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, student financial aid, and other services available for victims, both within the institution and in the community (as described in “Assistance for Victims: Rights and Options” elsewhere in this document); and
    4. options for, available assistance in, and how to request changes to academic, living, transportation, and working situations or protective measures (as described in “Assistance for Victims: Rights and Options” elsewhere in this document); 
    5. procedures for institutional disciplinary action in cases of alleged dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking (as described in “Adjudication of Violations” elsewhere in this document);
Primary Prevention and Awareness Programs

UAA offers a number of primary prevention programs. UA Safe is an online program addressing the critical issues of sex or gender-based discrimination prevention and response including sexual assault, harassment, stalking, domestic violence, and dating violence. All students who are degree seeking, living in campus housing, students on national/international exchange, and middle college students enrolled at the University are annually required to complete UA Safe training. UA Safe promotes a safe and inclusive environment by educating students about their rights on campus, as well as different support systems set in place. The program also encourages bystander intervention, by providing students with the necessary tools to intervene in certain situations. Besides UA Safe, new student orientation programs are provided for the Anchorage campus, Aviation Technology Complex, Mat-Su College, and Prince William Sound College. All UA employees are also required to annually complete Title IX training, offered both online and in person, which addresses the same topics as the student training. In fact, the online training available to UA employees is UA Safe - the same online training available to students.

  • Anchorage
    • Providence Forensic Nursing Services (24 hours) 907-212-8544

           Crisis: (907) 835-4044 

In Alaska, evidence may be collected even if you choose not to make a report to law enforcement[1]. It is important that a complainant of sexual assault not bathe, douche, smoke, change clothing, or clean the bed/linen/area where they were assaulted if the offense occurred within the past 96 hours so that evidence may be preserved that may assist in proving that the alleged criminal offense occurred/or is occurring or may be helpful in obtaining a protection order. In circumstances of sexual assault, if complainants do not opt for forensic evidence collection, health care providers can still treat injuries and take steps to address concerns of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted infections. Complainants of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence are encouraged to also preserve evidence by saving text messages, instant messages, social networking pages, other communications, and keeping pictures, logs or other copies of documents, if they have any, that would be useful to University adjudicators/investigators or police.

As time passes, evidence may dissipate or become lost or unavailable, thereby making investigation, possible prosecution, administrative proceedings, or obtaining protection from abuse orders related to the incident more difficult. If a complainant chooses not to make a complaint regarding an incident, they nevertheless should consider speaking with University Police or other local law enforcement to preserve evidence in the event that the complainant decides to report the incident to law enforcement or the University at a later date to assist in proving that the alleged criminal offense occurred or that may be helpful in obtaining a protection order.

Involvement of Law Enforcement and Campus Authorities

The University encourages all members of its community to report domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking under VAWA to law enforcement (including on campus law enforcement and/or local police), and it is the complainant's choice whether or not to make such a report, unless the University is obligated by law to report the behavior. Furthermore, complainants have the right to decline to notify University Police or local law enforcement. However, the Office of Equity & Compliance will assist any complainant with notifying law enforcement if the complainant so desires. The office can be reached by visiting Room 352 of the Social Sciences Building at 3190 Alumni Drive or phoning 907-786-0818.

To make a police report, contact University Police Dispatch and request an officer take a report. An officer may come to you or you may go to the UPD office. The officer will collect information specific to those involved and the facts relating to the report and any potential evidence to be included within the report. Following is the contact information for local police:

The Division of Alaska State Troopers (AST) serves the entire state, and works with local law enforcement, when they are present, to provide services. If a situation occurs in an area of coverage for their detachment, AST will respond when 911 is called. It should be noted that many communities in Alaska are not accessible from the road system and require significant coordination to respond. 

In addition to reporting requirements as campus security authorities (CSAs) under Clery, CSAs remain responsible employees who, by University policy, must report any gender-based discrimination to the Title IX Coordinator.  For a definition of employees designated as responsible employees, please see BOR P01.04.060.D.  When reporting as a responsible employee, the reporter must provide the complainant’s name to the Title IX Coordinator. Additional information about the role and responsibilities of responsible employees under Title IX may be found here. If the responsible employee also chooses to report an incident to University Police, they may withhold the complainant’s name when making the report to University Police.

Reporting Incidents of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking

If you have been the victim of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, you are able to report the incident promptly to the Title IX Coordinator and University Police or local law enforcement (if the victim so desires). Anonymous reporting is available through the UA Ethicspoint website and hotline and online reporting forms on the Office of Equity & Compliance website. Following is contact information for the University Title IX Coordinator:

Director & Title IX Coordinator
3190 Alumni Drive, Suite 352
907-786-0818
uaa_titleix@alaska.edu

Reports of all domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking made to University Police will automatically be referred to the Title IX Coordinator for assessment, and investigation when deemed appropriate, regardless of whether there is a criminal investigation or proceeding.

Common Procedures the University will Follow When an Incident Is Reported

The University has procedures in place that serve to be sensitive to parties who report sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, including informing individuals about their right to file criminal charges as well as the availability of counseling, health, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, student financial aid and other services on and/or off campus as well as additional supportive measures to prevent contact between a complainant and a respondent, such as changes to housing, academic, transportation, protective orders and working adjustments, if reasonably available. The University will provide such supportive measures, if the parties request them and if they are reasonably available, regardless of whether the party chooses to report the crime to University Police or local law enforcement. Complainants and respondents should contact the Office of Equity & Compliance at 907-786-0818 for more information about these supportive measures.

If a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking is reported to the University, below are the procedures that the University will follow:

  1. The University will assess immediate safety needs of the parties and broader University community.
  2. In cases of sexual misconduct, the University may communicate a brief summary of the known allegation(s), without the use of names, to senior leadership. 
  3. Depending on when reported (immediate vs delayed report), the University will provide the complainant with access to medical care, as appropriate.
  4. The University will provide referrals to on and off campus mental health providers, if available.
  5. The University will provide the complainant with contact information for local law enforcement AND assist the complainant with contacting local police, if the complainant requests.
  6. The University will provide written information to the complainant on how to preserve evidence.
  7. The University will provide the complainant and the respondent, when applicable and appropriate, with a written explanation of their rights, information about services within the University and in the community, and the availability and procedure for requesting supportive measures.
  8. The University will assess the need to implement interim or long-term protective measures, if appropriate.
  9. The University may initiate an interim removal, interim restriction or other supportive measures when deemed appropriate and consistent with University policies. For more information on interim removals, please see P01.04.090. For more information on interim restrictions, please see P09.02.050.E. Other interim and supportive measures, including no-contact orders are specified in R01.04.070.A.
  10. The University will provide contact information for advocate services that can assist with how to apply for a protective order, as appropriate.
  11. If the reported behavior falls within the jurisdiction of the University, the University will investigate the report.
  12. If there is an investigation under BOR 01.04 or BOR 01.02, the University will provide a copy of the applicable policy to the complainant and the respondent and inform them regarding timeframes for inquiry, investigation, and resolution.
  13. If there is an investigation, the University will make a determination under the appropriate policy to determine whether the respondent is responsible for the alleged conduct. 
  14. If there is an investigation, the University will inform the complainant and the respondent of the outcome of the investigation, appeal rights and processes, whether there are any changes to the result, and when such results become final, whether disciplinary action was taken.
  15. The University will enforce its anti-retaliation policy and take immediate and separate action against parties that retaliate against a person for reporting sex or gender-based discrimination, for participating in the investigation, or for refusing to participate in any manner in the investigation.
Assistance for Victims: Rights & Options

Regardless of whether an individual elects to pursue a criminal complaint or whether the offense is alleged to have occurred on or off campus, the University will assist the individual and provide them with a written explanation of their rights and options. Such written information will include:

  • the procedures an individual should follow if a crime of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking has occurred;
  • information about how the University will protect the confidentiality of complainants and other necessary parties;
  • information about services within the University and in the community;
  • options for, available assistance in, and how to request supportive measures and protective measures; and
  • an explanation of the procedures for University administrative action.
Supportive Measures Available

Upon receipt of a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, the University will provide written notification to complainants and respondents about supportive measures available to them, including academic, living, transportation, University no-contact orders, and working situations. The written notification will include information regarding the supportive measure options, available assistance in requesting supportive measures, and how to request supportive measures and protective measures (i.e., the notification will include the name and contact information for the individual or office that should be contacted to request the supportive measures).

At the complainant's request, and to the extent of the complainant's cooperation and consent, University offices will work cooperatively to assist the complainant in obtaining supportive measures. If reasonably available, a complainant may be offered changes to academic, living, working, protective orders or transportation situations regardless of whether the complainant chooses to report the crime to University police or local law enforcement. Examples of options for a potential change to the academic situation may be to transfer to a different section of a class, withdraw and take a class at another time if there is no option for moving to a different section, assistance with requesting an appeal for late withdrawal and refund, etc. Potential changes to living situations may include moving to a different room, floor, or residence hall. Possible changes to work situations may include changing working hours or changing workspace location. Possible changes in transportation may include having the student or employee park in a different location, assisting the student or employee with a safety escort, etc.

To request changes to academic, living, transportation and/or working situations or protective measures, a complainant should contact either the Office of Equity & Compliance, the Dean of Students Office on the Anchorage campus, Student Services at community campuses, and/or the Department of Residence Life. If the complainant wishes to receive assistance in requesting these supportive measures, they should contact the Office of Equity & Compliance at 907-786-0818 or visit Suite 352 at 3190 Alumni Drive. The University is obligated to comply with a student’s reasonable request for a living and/or academic situation change following an allegation of sex or gender-based discrimination.

University's Responsibilities for Protective Orders (also called "restraining orders") or Similar Lawful Orders Issued by a Criminal, Civil, or Tribal Court or "No-Contact" or "No Trespass" Orders issued by the University

The University of Alaska Anchorage recognizes protective orders entered by the Alaska Court System or another jurisdiction that meet Alaska statutory requirements. See AS 18.66.140.  Any person who obtains a protective order should provide a copy to University Police and the Office of Equity & Compliance. The individual with the protective order can meet with University Police to discuss any safety concerns and work with the Office of Equity & Compliance to provide supportive measures in an attempt to reduce risk of harm while on campus or coming and going from campus. These supportive measures may include, but are not limited to: safety escorts, special parking arrangements, providing a temporary cell phone, changing classroom location, or allowing a student to complete assignments from home, etc. The University cannot apply for a legal protective order on behalf of an individual. The University of Alaska Anchorage can issue a "no-contact" order against a person who is affiliated with UAA and can issue a “no trespass” order against any person.

Type of Order Rights of Petitioner Institution's Responsibilities
Domestic Violence Protective Order (20-day ex parte orders and long-term protective orders, which can last up to 6 months) Protection from contact by the respondent in cases of domestic violence; respondent is a "household member," including relatives and dating partners Honor and enforce
Stalking Protective Order (20-day ex parte orders and long-term protective orders, which can last up to 6 months) Protection from contact by the respondent in cases involving stalking, which consists of repeated acts of non-consensual contact involving the complainant or a family member of the complainant Honor and enforce
Sexual Assault Protective Order (20-day ex parte orders and long-term protective orders, which can last up to 6 months) Protection from contact by the respondent who has committed a crime of sexual assault, including illegal sexual contact or penetration Honor and enforce
Similar lawful orders issued by a criminal, civil, or tribal court Protection from contact by a respondent, who can be anyone covered by the order Honor and enforce
University "no-contact" orders or "no trespass" orders by the University Protection from contact by a University-affiliated respondent and/or protection from a respondent’s (need not be affiliated) presence on University property or at a University-sponsored event Impose on respondent; enforce against respondent

Except for the University-issued orders listed above, an individual must apply for a court protective order directly from the Alaska Court System or another jurisdiction for these services. An individual may request a no-contact order or a no trespass order through the Office of Equity & Compliance.

The University may issue a University no-contact order, if reasonable. Prior to issuing a written no-contact order (also called a no-contact directive), a University representative will make a reasonable attempt to meet with the complainant and respondent:

  • To explain the reason for the no-contact directive;
  • To discuss what no-contact means;
  • To determine any contact that both individuals may still need to have with one another (in classes, in clubs, through employment, on athletic teams, etc.);
  • To inform students that no-contact directives are enforced through the Student Code of Conduct and are not criminal matters; and
  • To share what they should do if the no-contact directive is violated.

No-contact directives will be tailored in each case. The length of time for a no-contact directive will be commensurate with the reason that it is being requested. If the University receives a report that such a University no-contact order has been violated, the University will initiate administrative proceedings appropriate to the status of the respondent (student, employee, etc.) and will impose sanctions if the respondent is found responsible for violating the no-contact order.

On and Off Campus Services for Assistance

Upon receipt of a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, the University will provide written notification to complainants and respondents, as appropriate, about existing assistance with and/or information about obtaining resources and services including counseling, health, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, student financial aid, and assistance in notifying appropriate local law enforcement. These resources include the following:

Confidentiality

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law, requires that educational institutions, including higher educational institutions, with certain exceptions, obtain written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from student education records. However, an institution may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless the institution has been advised to withhold such information in accordance with FERPA compliant procedures. Parties may request that directory information on file with the University be withheld by going to UAOnline, then clicking on “Personal Information,” and clicking on “Change Student Directory Hold Information,” and select “Enable,” and then click on “Update Confidentiality.”

A directory hold applies to all elements of directory information on a student’s record. The University of Alaska does not apply a directory hold differentially to the various directory information data elements. As a result, a directory hold will prevent the University from releasing information to verify a student’s enrollment or earned degrees to scholarship organizations, loan agencies, and future employers. The directory hold will also prevent us from listing or releasing a student’s name related to Dean’s and Chancellor’s lists, as well as the commencement program or any other University publication. 

Regardless of whether a complainant has opted-out of allowing the University to share "directory information," personally identifiable information about the complainant, respondent, and other necessary parties will be treated as private and only shared with persons who have a specific need-to-know, i.e., those who are involved in the investigation and adjudication of the report or those involved in providing supportive measures to the parties. Absolute confidentiality may not be maintained in all circumstances, especially in cases where the University must take action to protect the safety of others. By only sharing personally identifiable information with individuals on a need-to-know basis, the University will maintain as confidential any supportive measures provided to the parties to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality would not impair the ability of the University to provide the supportive measures.

The University does not publish the names of crime victims or other identifiable information regarding complainants in the Daily Crime Log or in the annual crime statistics that are disclosed in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. Furthermore, if a Timely Warning Notice is issued on the basis of a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, the name of the complainant and other personally identifiable information about the complainant will be withheld.

Adjudication of Allegations

The University's administrative process includes a prompt, fair, and impartial initial investigation and final resolution. In all instances, the process will be conducted in a manner that is consistent with the institution's policy and that is transparent to the complainant and respondent. 

Typically, the resolution of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking complaints that constitute sex or gender-based discrimination are completed within 180 days of the report. However, each proceeding allows for extensions of timeframes for good cause with written notice to the complainant and the respondent of the delay and the reason for the delay. 

University officials involved in the investigation and adjudication of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking complaints that constitute sex or gender-based discrimination are trained annually on the issues related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Training for these officials will address but will not be limited to the following topics:

  • Relevant evidence and how it should be used during a proceeding;
  • Proper techniques for questioning witnesses;
  • Basic procedural rules for conducting a proceeding; and
  • Avoiding actual and perceived conflicts of interest.

University policy relating to the investigation and adjudication of complaints that concern sex or gender-based discrimination including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking provides that:

  1. The complainant and the respondent will have timely notice for meetings at which the complainant or respondent, or both, may be present;
  2. The complainant, the respondent, and appropriate officials will have timely and equal access to any information that will be used during formal and informal administrative meetings and hearings;
  3. The institutional administrative procedures will not be conducted by officials who have a conflict of interest or bias for or against the complainant or the respondent;
  4. The complainant and the respondent will have the same opportunities to have others present during any institutional administrative proceeding. The complainant and the respondent each have the opportunity to be advised by an advisor of their choice, including an advisor they choose at their own expense, at any stage of the process, and to be accompanied by that advisor to any related meeting or proceeding. The advisor may be a friend, relative, student, faculty, or staff member, advocacy organization staff member or volunteer, union representative, or attorney. A witness in the grievance process may also be an advisor, and any perceived “conflict of interest” will be taken into account by the decision-maker. The University will not limit the choice of advisor or presence of the advisor for either the complainant or the respondent in any meeting or institutional administrative proceeding. For live hearings held under Title IX policy, parties who do not have an advisor will be assigned an advisor by the University.
  5. The complainant and the respondent will be notified simultaneously, in writing, of any initial, interim, and final decision of any administrative proceeding; and
  6. Where an appeal is permitted under the applicable policy, the complainant and the respondent will be notified simultaneously in writing of the procedures for the respondent and the complainant to appeal the result of the institutional disciplinary proceeding. When an appeal is filed, the complainant and the respondent will be notified simultaneously in writing of any change to the result prior to the time that it becomes final, as well as of the final result once the appeal is resolved.
How to File a Complaint

Whether or not criminal charges are brought, an individual or the University [2] may file a complaint of sex or gender-based discrimination using the following procedures.

  1. Notify the UAA Title IX Coordinator by phone 907-786-0818 or in person in Suite 352 at 3190 Alumni Drive on the Anchorage campus. Reports can also be made online at: https://cm.maxient.com/reportingform.php?UnivofAlaska&layout_id=77.  If you would prefer to report the incident by phone or in person to someone on your campus, see the list of Title IX representatives for each UA campus located online at https://www.alaska.edu/titleIXcompliance/title-ix-contacts/.
  2. Tell UAA about the incident by using the UA Confidential Hotline. You may phone 855-251-5719 or you may file a report online at https://www.alaska.edu/titleIXcompliance/disclosure-options/. When you use the UA Confidential Hotline, you have the choice of disclosing who you are, remaining semi-anonymous, or completely anonymous.
  3. Call University Police by phone 907-786-1120 or in person in Room 114 in Eugene Short Hall on the Anchorage campus. You may report the crime anonymously to University Police using their Silent Witness webpage located online at https://www.uaa.alaska. edu/about/administrative- services/departments/ university-police-department/.

*For allegations which meet the definition of sexual harassment under Title IX, including some forms of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, an investigation will not commence without a formal written complaint from either the complainant or the Title IX Coordinator. The requirements of a formal complaint are detailed in University Regulation 01.04.060.B.3.

With the limited exception of counselors, clergy, or other persons with a professional license requiring confidentiality who are working within that license, all staff, all faculty, and Residence Life student employees are considered responsible employees and are required to report incidents of sex and gender-based discrimination to the Title IX Coordinator.

Range of Supportive Measures Available When Sex or Gender-based Discrimination is Alleged

The University may offer supportive measures including, but not limited to:

  • Rescheduling of exams and assignments;
  • Changing class schedules or assisting in withdrawal without penalty;
  • Changing University work schedule or job assignments;
  • Changing campus housing;
  • Making transportation arrangements or arranging a safety escort;
  • Imposing an on-campus "no-contact order," an administrative action designed to stop contact and communications between two or more individuals; and
  • Fully or partially restricting the respondent's access to the University or University services or functions.
Types of Proceedings Utilized in Cases of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking

UAA has four policies that address student or employee conduct in cases of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, depending on the nature of the case and the role of the individuals involved:

Policy
Description
  1. Regents' Policy and University Regulation Chapter 01.04

Applies to complaints of sex and gender-based discrimination, including domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking that:

  • Occurred within a University program or activity; AND
  • Involves a complainant participating or attempting to participate in a University educational program or activity at the time the complaint is filed; AND
  • Involves a respondent participating or attempting to participate in a University educational program or activity; AND
  • Involves conduct occurring within the United States; AND
  • Meets the definitions of Title IX prohibited conduct under R01.04.010.

2. Regents' Policy and University Regulation Chapter 01.02

Applies to complaints involving discriminatory behavior including domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking that:

  • Is not covered by R01.04; 
  • Involves a respondent who is affiliated with the University; AND
  • Creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive learning or working environment on campus.

3. Regents' Policy and University Regulation Chapter 09.02

Applies to conduct prohibited under the Student Code of Conduct including any allegations of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking that:

  • Is not covered by R01.04 or R01.02; AND
  • Involves a respondent who is a student or student organization

4. Regents' Policies and University Regulations Chapters 04.02, 04.07, 04.08, 04.10, & 09.05

Applies to misconduct by employees, including any accusations of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking that:

  • Is not covered by R01.04 or R01.02; AND
  • Involves a respondent who is an employee


Sex and gender-based misconduct may result in a single University policy violation or a combination of multiple University policy violations, dependent on the fact pattern and the circumstances. Reported behavior which, after assessment, appears to meet the jurisdictional requirements and definitions of prohibited conduct under BOR 01.04 (Title IX) will be addressed first under BOR 01.04. However, if information is discovered which changes the coverage assessment, the BOR 01.04 process will be ended and the reported behavior should be addressed under any other applicable chapter(s).

The following sections describe each Chapter.

Note: All references to “day” in this document will refer to one business day.

Regents' Policy and University Regulation 01.04

A full version of this policy is located at: www.alaska.edu/bor/policy/01-04.pdf

How the University Determines Whether This Policy Applies and Whether to Proceed with an Investigation; Supportive Measures

Upon receiving a report of sex or gender-based discrimination, the Title IX Coordinator determines if there is sufficient basis and jurisdiction to initiate an investigation under BOR 01.04. Sex and gender-based misconduct that does not meet the requirements of BOR 01.04 are addressed under other applicable chapters (see table at the beginning of this document). 

The Title IX Coordinator engages with the complainant in the interactive process to discuss supportive measures, determine whether the complainant wants to proceed with an investigation or whether the circumstances require the University to proceed with an investigation, and explains the process for filling out a formal complaint. The Equity & Compliance staff also evaluates the risk, if any, the respondent presents to the complainant or University community and takes appropriate steps in response to that assessment.

Steps in the Process
  1. Anticipated Timelines

    A reasonably prompt timeframe for conclusion of the grievance process, including time for filing and resolving appeals and participation in any informal resolution processes, is defined as 180 days. See the following for additional timelines applicable to specific steps in the process.

  2. Decision-Making Process and Outcomes
    • Informal Resolution

      As detailed in BOR 01.04.120, any party may request to use the University’s informal resolution process (which may involve, for instance, mediation, training, restorative justice, developmental opportunities, or apologies) to resolve a formal complaint any time after the formal complaint is filed but before a determination of responsibility has been made. Informal resolution is not available in cases alleging sex or gender-based discrimination by an employee against a student. As long as all parties agree in writing to attempt the informal resolution process, the formal grievance process will stop and the informal resolution process will begin. If any party no longer wishes to use informal resolution, the informal resolution process will end and the formal grievance process will resume.

    • Investigation

      A formal complaint is required to proceed with an investigation under Title IX. Sex and gender-based allegations that do not meet the requirements of Regents' Policy and University Regulation 01.04 must be dismissed and are addressed under different chapters of policy. A complainant or respondent can appeal the dismissal of a formal complaint within 5 days of receipt of the dismissal. A complainant or respondent must submit a written appeal to the chancellor or the president, in the case of statewide employees. The president, chancellor, or their designee will review the appeal and render a prompt, written decision either upholding the dismissal, overturning the dismissal and returning it for additional investigation to the original Title IX coordinator, or to another Title IX coordinator if a conflict of interest exists for or with the original Title IX coordinator, or seeking more information.

      If a formal complaint is received, the Title IX investigator(s) will conduct an investigation that provides an objective evaluation of all relevant evidence, including both inculpatory and exculpatory evidence, and does not make credibility assessments based on a person’s status as a complainant, respondent, or witness. The burden of gathering evidence rests on the University and not on the parties; however, the parties may present relevant witnesses and evidence to the investigator.

      The Title IX investigator(s) will provide the parties with an equal opportunity to inspect and review any evidence obtained as part of the investigation that is directly related to the allegations raised in the formal complaint, including any evidence which the University does not intend to rely upon in reaching a determination regarding responsibility. The parties will have at least 10 days to submit a written response to the evidence, which the investigator will consider prior to completion of the investigative report. 

      The Title IX investigator(s) will write an investigative report that does not make a finding but fairly summarizes relevant evidence, makes relevant credibility assessments, and considers each party’s written response to the evidence and, at least 10 days prior to a hearing, send a copy of the investigative report to each party and the party’s advisor, if any, in an electronic format or a hard copy, for review and written responses.

    • Hearing and Determination of Responsibility

      Once the investigative report has been distributed, the University Office of General Counsel will timely appoint a decision-maker to conduct a hearing. The decision-maker shall not be the campus Title IX coordinator or the investigator of record, but may be a Title IX coordinator or investigator from another campus or any other qualified person.

      A live hearing will be held with either in person or virtual attendance of parties, witnesses, and other participants. Hearings will last no longer than two days with the option of an extension at the decision-maker’s discretion upon request by the University, the complainant or the respondent.

      The decision-maker shall have discretion for the following additional determinations:

      1. To allow or restrict attendance of non-parties at the hearing, including restriction of attendance of all persons other than the University’s representatives, the parties, their advisors, a union representative, if applicable, and other individuals as required by law;
      2. To allow the University, complainant, and respondent, or an advisor, to make a brief opening and/or closing statement, provided no party shall be compelled to make any such statement; and
      3. To ask questions during the hearing of any party or witness, including the right to be the first person to ask questions of any party or witness. A party has no obligation to respond to questions from the decision-maker, and no inference may be drawn from such a refusal.

      The Title IX investigator will present the relevant evidence gathered during the investigation.

      The decision-maker shall allow each party’s advisor, whether selected or appointed, to ask the other party and any witnesses all relevant questions and follow-up questions, including those challenging credibility of any party or witness. Questioning and cross-examination shall not be permitted by any party personally. Determinations of relevancy of any question asked by any advisor shall be made by the decision-maker prior to any response by a party or witness.

      The decision-maker may require questions to be submitted prior to the hearing so their relevance can be determined, and the parties may submit their questions prior to the hearing so that relevance can be pre-established.

      A party's advisor may object to a question's relevance once. Once the decision maker determines to include or exclude the question, no further objections may be made.

      If a party or witness disagrees with the decision-maker's relevance determination, they have the choice of either abiding by the decision-maker's determination and answering the question or refusing to answer the question.

      Questions and evidence about the complainant’s sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior is not relevant unless provided to prove either that someone other than respondent committed the conduct alleged by complainant or if it concerns specific instances of the complainant’s prior sexual behavior with respect to the respondent that are offered to prove consent to the conduct alleged by complainant.

      The decision-maker must issue a written determination regarding responsibility within 30 days, and this deadline may be extended for good cause with written notice to both parties. 

      The written determination regarding responsibility will include any disciplinary sanctions the University imposes on the respondent and the date sanctions take effect, absent any appeal. Possible sanctions are outlined under R01.04.160.

    • Appeal

      The complainant and respondent each have a right to appeal a determination regarding responsibility. To appeal, a complainant or respondent must submit a written request to appeal within 5 days of receipt of the determination. The request must identify the finding being appealed and the ground(s) for appeal per Regulation 01.04.180. The appeal authority will be the chancellor at the separately accredited universities within the University system — UAA, UAF, and UAS — or the system president for statewide employees.

      Upon receipt of a request to appeal a decision under this chapter, the chancellor or president shall allow the complainant and respondent to have 15 days to submit a written statement in support of, or challenging, the outcome, but no party is obligated to submit a statement, nor shall a party’s decision not to file a statement be held against them. 

      The chancellor or president will issue a written decision describing the result of the appeal and the rationale for the result and will provide the decision to the complainant and respondent simultaneously. 

      An appeal of sanctions for a finding of responsibility against non-represented (non-bargaining unit) individuals is handled under Regents' Policy and University Regulation 09.02 and 04.08 as outlined in those sections.  

      Bargaining unit employees who have been found responsible and disciplined pursuant to this sex and gender-based discrimination chapter must resolve any dispute regarding the findings of responsibility or sanctions through the dispute resolution processes provided in their collective bargaining agreement.

  3. Standard of Evidence

    Findings are made using the preponderance of the evidence standard.

Regents' Policy and University Regulation 01.02

A full version of this policy is located at: https://www.alaska.edu/bor/policy/01.02-General%20Provisions.pdf.

How the University Determines Whether This Policy will be Used

An Equity & Compliance investigator reviews reported allegations to determine whether the alleged conduct constitutes discrimination and falls within jurisdiction of applicable policies; the investigator gives consideration to the record as a whole and the totality of the circumstances.

Steps in the Process
  1. Anticipated Timelines and General Procedures
    • The Equity & Compliance investigator(s) will conduct a timely investigation that includes making a determination of responsibility.
    • A copy of the written findings are distributed to the complainant and the respondent and the following parties, if appropriate: the respondent’s supervisor, the Office of General Counsel, the UA Labor and Employee Engagement Office in Human Resources, and office of Student Conduct.
    • A non-represented (non-bargaining unit) complainant or respondent who disputes the written findings of the investigation report may request a formal review of the findings within 5 days of the release of the findings.
      • The requested formal review will be conducted by one or more trained individuals appointed by the chancellor or, in the case of statewide employees, the president. The purpose of this review is to provide an opportunity for the chancellor or president to obtain an objective review of the investigation findings when those findings are disputed by one of the involved parties
      • The review is scheduled as soon as practicable and the written recommendation resulting from the review will be forwarded to the chancellor, or in the case of a statewide employee, to the president for a decision.
      • If a party is dissatisfied with the decision of a chancellor resulting from a formal review, that party may request a discretionary review by the president within 5 days of the decision.
      • If the president elects to review a chancellor’s decision, the president’s decision will be the final decision of the University. If the president does not elect to accept a review within 15 days, the decision of the chancellor then becomes the final decision of the University. In the case of Statewide Administration employees, the decision of the president is the final decision of the University.
    • Employees covered under collective bargaining agreement may dispute decisions, including findings and sanctions pursuant to P01.02, using the processes provided in the applicable collective bargaining agreement.

  2. Decision-Making Process and Outcomes
    • Informal Resolution Process

      The purpose of informal resolution is to educate and inform individuals of their offensive behavior and to allow individuals the opportunity to voluntarily correct inappropriate behavior without administrative action. A complainant generally should try to inform the person directly that his or her behavior is unwelcome, harmful or offensive. The complainant is also encouraged to request assistance from other University employees (supervisors), UA Human Resources, advisors or affirmative action officers in the informal resolution of a complaint. These assistants will promptly attempt to resolve the complaint through consultation and guidance of the complainant or, as appropriate, mediation between all concerned parties. Informal resolution may include informing the person about the behavior and/or writing a letter concerning the behavior and requesting that the behavior be stopped. If informal resolution efforts fail to achieve satisfactory results, or if informal resolution is inappropriate in consideration of the circumstances or the egregious nature of the alleged behavior, the complainant may file a formal complaint with the affirmative action officer or the regional personnel officer as the initial action.

    • Investigation

      Investigations are conducted by a University investigator who makes findings of responsibility or no responsibility and forwards these findings to the appropriate office, such as Student Conduct or Human Resources, based on the parties’ roles, regarding the assignment of sanctions.

    • Sanctions


      For student respondents, the office of Student Conduct imposes or recommends sanctions as defined in University Regulation 09.02.040. For employee respondents, the supervisor or the Human Resources office imposes sanctions according to Regents' Policy 04.07 and 04.08 and applicable collective bargaining agreements. For respondents that are both students
      and University employees, all applicable sanction procedures may be used. For third-party respondents, sanctions are imposed by campus leadership.

  3. Standard of Proof

    Findings are made using the preponderance of the evidence standard.

Regents' Policy and University Regulation 09.02

A full version of this policy can be found at: http://www.alaska.edu/bor/policy/09.02-Student%20Rights%20and%20Responsibilities.pdf

How the University Determines Whether This Policy will be Used

Any University student, faculty, staff member, or community member may report an alleged violation of the Student Code of Conduct to the appropriate student conduct administrator in accordance with MAU rules and procedures. The University has the right to pursue notice of student misconduct on its own behalf and initiate a student conduct review, regardless of whether or not a formal allegation is submitted by a complainant.

The student conduct administrator will then review the allegations and conduct an appropriate preliminary investigation to determine:

  • whether to dismiss the matter because insufficient information exists to support the accusation; or
  • whether sufficient information exists to warrant further student conduct proceedings; and, if so,
  • whether the allegations, if substantiated, will subject the student to a major or a minor sanction.
Steps in the Administrative Process
  1. Anticipated Timelines and General Procedures
    • Upon making the initial determination that any allegation warrants a student conduct proceeding, the student conduct administrator will send the student written notification:
      • of the allegations of misconduct and the provisions of the Code which allegedly have been violated;
      • of the student conduct administrator’s name, telephone number, and office location; and the time period in which the student should schedule a meeting to review the allegations with the student conduct administrator;
      • of whether a major or minor sanction is likely to be imposed should the allegations be substantiated by a preponderance of the evidence; and
      • that, should the student fail to schedule a meeting to review the allegations, the meeting will be scheduled by the student conduct administrator.
    • The student conduct administrator schedules an administrative review with the respondent to review the allegations. Administrative reviews will ordinarily be scheduled between three and fifteen days after the student conduct administrator sends written notice of the allegations to the student.
    • Barring extenuating circumstances, the student conduct administrator prepares written findings and conclusions and sends the decision to the complainant and respondent within ten days after the conclusion of the administrative review.
    • If the case results in a finding of responsibility and the respondent is assigned minor sanctions, then:
      • The respondent may submit an appeal in writing within seven days of the day the decision is issued.
      • Barring extenuating circumstances, the designated appeal reviewer will issue its written decision within seven days of receiving the notice of appeal.
    • If the case results in a finding of responsibility and the student conduct administrator recommends the imposition of major sanctions on the respondent, then the student has seven days to submit written comments on the findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the administrative review.
      • The MAU senior student services professional or designee will review the record and render a decision within fourteen days of receipt of the recommendation, barring extenuating circumstances.
      • If the MAU senior student services professional has recommended a major sanction, the chancellor will review the record, and barring extenuating circumstances, render a decision within seven days of receipt of the recommendation.

  2. Decision-Making Process
    • Investigation

      Investigations are conducted by a student conduct administrator who makes findings of responsibility or no responsibility and assigns or recommends sanctions. At the administrative review, the student conduct administrator reviews the allegations and available information regarding the matter. The student is given the opportunity to present relevant information, names of witnesses, relevant explanations, and/or mitigating factors for the alleged violation.

      The University student conduct system is an administrative process and is not a court of law and is not held to standards applied in criminal proceedings. Formal rules of evidence do not apply. Testimony containing hearsay may be considered, and will be weighed appropriately, taking into account the reliability of the information. Findings and conclusions are based upon information obtained during the review.

    • Sanctions
      In determining appropriate sanctions, the student's present and past disciplinary record, the nature of the offense, the severity of any damage, injury, or harm resulting from the prohibited behavior, and other factors relevant to the matter are considered.

    • Appeals
      An appeal must be made in writing and identify the ground(s) for appeal. The designated appeal reviewer conducts a review of the record and issues a decision dismissing or upholding or altering or modifying the challenged decision, making a new decision, authorizing a new review, or referring the matter back for further review.

  3. Standard of Proof

    A student conduct procedure is a review undertaken by the University to establish whether there is substantial information to determine whether it is more likely than not that a student violated the Code.

*A letter of expectations is a possible sanction under R01.04.160.D.21; however, it is not a possible sanction under R09.02.050.B. 

**A warning is not a possible sanction under R01.04.160.D.21; however, it is a possible sanction under R09.02.050.B. 

***Suspensions can be one semester or longer in duration. A suspension less than one year is unlikely. Additional information about terms of re-enrollment for students who have been suspended are listed in the definition for suspension. 

A letter of expectations or a warning are unlikely sanctions in allegations of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and domestic violence.

Definition of Sanctions for Students (as defined in BOR 01.04 and BOR 09.02)
  • Letter of Expectations: A letter of expectations indicates the deficiencies in a student’s conduct and the standards a student is expected to meet.
  • Warning: A notice that the student is violating or has violated University policy, and that further misconduct may result in more severe disciplinary action.
  • Disciplinary Probation: A written warning that includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be engaged in specified conduct during a specified period of time (the probationary period).
  • Denial of Benefits: Specific benefits may be denied a respondent for a designated period of time.
  • Restitution: A respondent may be required to reimburse the University or other victims related to the misconduct for damage to or misappropriation of property, or for reasonable expenses incurred.
  • Discretionary Sanction: Community service work or other uncompensated labor, educational classes, research papers, reflective essays, counseling, or other sanctions that may be seen as appropriate to the circumstances of a given matter. Costs incurred by the respondent in fulfilling a discretionary sanction will typically be the responsibility of the respondent.
  • Restricted Access: A respondent may be restricted from entering certain designated areas and/or facilities or from using specific equipment for a specified period of time. For example, a respondent may be restricted from a classroom, a building, a floor of a residence hall, a residence hall, a residential community, an area of campus, or the entire campus.
  • Suspension: Suspension is the separation of the respondent from the University for a specified period of time, after which the respondent may be eligible to return. During the period of suspension, the respondent may be prohibited from participation in any activity sponsored or authorized by the University and may be barred from all property owned or controlled by the University, except as stated on the notification. If a respondent who is suspended seeks to re-enroll at the University, the respondent must submit a written request for re-enrollment that includes a statement from a mental health professional who is not affiliated with the University of Alaska and who is licensed to practice psychotherapy or personal counseling. The statement must affirm the respondent participated in an assessment with that provider and complied with any recommendations for treatment. The respondent must also sign a release of information allowing UAA officials to speak to the provider. If a respondent receives permission to re-enroll, the respondent will be placed on disciplinary probation for a period of one year from the date of the respondent’s re-enrollment.
  • Expulsion: Expulsion is the permanent separation of the respondent from the University. The respondent may be prohibited from participation in any activity sponsored or authorized by the University and may be barred from property owned or controlled by the University except as stated on the notice of expulsion.
  • Revocation of a Degree: Any degree previously conferred by the University may be revoked if the student is found to have committed academic misconduct in pursuit of that degree, such as an education student who sexually harasses a minor K-12 student during a teaching internship or a nursing student who sexually harasses a patient during an externship placement.

The above chart reflects the University’s sanctioning guidelines absent extenuating circumstances.

Definition of Sanctions for Employees
  • Written Reprimand: Written reprimand will describe the nature of the offense or deficiency, the method or methods of correction, and the probable action to be taken if the offense is repeated or the deficiency persists. The written reprimand will be placed in the respondent’s personnel file.
  • Disciplinary Probation: Any respondent who fails to meet the performance standards or employment conditions of the supervising authority may, at the discretion of the University, be placed on disciplinary probation for a period not exceeding six months. Failure to meet the disciplinary performance standards or employment conditions may result in termination of employment for cause.
  • Suspension: A respondent may be suspended without pay for not more than ten working days. Suspension may be used in circumstances which the University believes that by its use the respondent will correct their job-related behavior or performance and where discharge appears unwarranted. A suspended respondent will not receive holidays, wages, sick or annual leave accrual, or other benefits based on hours during the leave period, but will continue to be covered by the applicable group insurance program.
  • Termination for Cause: A respondent may be terminated from employment for cause.
Other Definitions Pertaining to Applicable Student and/or Employee Policies
  • Amnesty: The University will provide amnesty for conduct that would warrant minor sanctions under the Student Code of Conduct, such as underage drinking or prohibited drug use, that is related to misconduct reported under Regents’ Policy and University Regulation 01.04 and 09.02.
  • Complicity: Any person who intentionally aids or facilitates an act of sexual harassment will be subject to disciplinary action under all applicable policies and/or regulations.
  • Retaliation: This occurs when a person intimidates, threatens, coerces, or discriminates against any person for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege described under the above policies, or because the person has made a report or complaint, testified, assisted, or participated or refused to participate in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the above policies.
University-Initiated Protective Measures

In addition to those protective measures previously described, the Equity & Compliance director or their designee will determine whether supportive or protective measures should be implemented, and, if so, take steps to implement those measures as soon as possible. Examples of supportive and protective measures include, but are not limited to: a University order of no-contact, residence hall relocation, adjustment of course schedules, a leave of absence, or reassignment to a different supervisor or position. These supportive or protective measures may be applied to one, both, or multiple parties involved but may not be punitive.[3] Violations of the Equity & Compliance director’s directives and/or protective measures will constitute related violations that may lead to disciplinary action. Protective measures imposed may be temporary pending the results of an investigation or may become permanent.

Notification to Victims of Crimes of Violence

The University will, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of a crime of violence, or a non-forcible sex offense, the report on the results of any disciplinary proceeding the University conducted against a student who is the alleged perpetrator of such crime or offense. If the alleged victim is deceased as the result of such crime or offense, the next of kin of such victim shall be treated as the alleged victim for purposes of this paragraph.

Sex Offender Registration

The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted on October 28, 2000, requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student. In Alaska, convicted sex offenders must register with the Department of Public Safety (DPS). You can link to this information, which appears on the DPS website, by accessing https://dps.alaska.gov/sorweb/.

JBER - Richardson Extension

During a review of UAA's geography, the JBER - Richardson Extension was determined to have been included as a non campus location for the Anchorage campus prior to 2022 when it would have met the definition of a separate campus. The JBER - Richardson Extension has an administrator on site at least part time, the campus is not reasonably contiguous to any other campus, the university has control of space, and a program of study is offered on the campus.
