The address will highlight the many points of pride and areas of success across the system including the key role the UA System plays in building a home-grown workforce for Alaska; the importance of cutting edge research that addresses Alaska’s and the world’s urgent challenges; and the work the three universities are doing to promote inclusion and success of Alaska Native students and faculty.
This will be Pitney’s second State of the University address since being appointed in 2020 as interim president, and will be her first as the university system’s 17th president. The University of Alaska Board of Regents appointed Pitney to the position on Feb. 25.
