Upcoming Board of Regents meetings

May 17, 2024

The University of Alaska (UA) Board of Regents will meet next week as the UA system ends a successful Academic Year 2024 on the high note of commencement celebrations statewide. The Class of 2024 benefited from long-running strategic investments, and years of fiscal stability. Those efforts, combined with the Regents’ strategic guidance, are paying off, fueling growing enrollment, positive public opinion, and increased research investment. The May 22-23, 2024, meeting at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) Campus follows a fortnight of commencement ceremonies, and passage of the university’s budgets and key legislative priorities.
