Advocacy Materials

The University of Alaska has a constitutional mandate to provide Alaskans with a quality education and we will continue to do so.

  • UA provides higher education to Alaskans at all stages of life and levels of education: from high school bridging programs, recent graduates, adults returning to college or military veterans, to life-long learners returning to higher education after retirement.
  • Programs are offered at many levels, from occupational endorsements and workforce training programs that can be completed in 9-29 credits, all the way up through associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.
  • Community campuses, career and technical colleges, online and distance-delivered courses reach Alaskans all across the state where and when they need them.

Advocacy Actions

#supportUA on social media

Social media is a great place to share positive news about the university - and to respectfully correct misinformation when you encounter it.  As always, the most effective tool is your personal story. Share how you have been impacted by the University of Alaska, why you support funding the university and why you oppose huge cuts to education. 

Contact your representatives

When contacting legislators remember to make your communication personal to your own views.  While it’s good to be aware of the University of Alaska budget, it’s preferable to talk to legislators about what you know best.

If you live in a particular legislative district—speak to your representatives as a voter and constituent; tell them specific ways you’d like to see them support UA.
