The University of Alaska will host an introduction to the statewide university system for state candidates during a “UA 101” session at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 3, 2006, at the University of Alaska Anchorage campus.

The session will be held in Room 106 of the Commons building, Sharon Gagnon Lane, UAA.  Candidates running for public office have been invited to attend. A similar “UA 101” session will be held later in August at the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus.
