UAA Campus is Open
We are pleased to report the UAA Anchorage campus will open on Wednesday, Dec. 5, following last Friday's earthquake. The Chugiak-Eagle River Campus will remain closed, but classes will resume in alternative locations. Students should check UAOnline for their new meeting location. As you return to campus, we encourage you to check the web page uaa.alaska.edu/earthquakerecovery for important safety tips and resources about how to submit work requests to facilities for repairs. Please continue to check our Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates.
Staff and Faculty
Seawolf Boot Camp is a faculty and staff training program designed to familiarize the UAA community with the Military/Veteran student experience so that we may better serve those who served. In Seawolf Boot Camp participants will learn information about the military & veteran culture, challenges they face, VA Benefits, how to build a military & veteran friendly environment, and resources available.
Training will result in participants receiving a Seawolf Boot Camp T-shirt, decal, & magnet. These items serve two purposes. First, they are a reward for faculty and staff for making the effort to become better informed on the issues faced by this large student population. Second, and more importantly, when these items are seen by students, faculty and staff, it signifies that the individual displaying them has made the effort to learn about this student experience and as a result is better equipped to support and assist our military and veteran students.
Interested in scheduling a Seawolf Boot Camp for your department? Workshops can be tailored to meet your staff and faculty needs. Let us know what topics you are interested in learning more about.
UAA is proud to recognize the veterans that work here as staff and faculty. If you or someone in your office has served, come pick up a sticker to display in your office. This also lets our students know that they are in the company of other veterans.
Thank you for your service!
