SAA's annual canned food drive will be March 1 - March 30, 2018.

Tell your story about what UA means to you, your families, friends, and our communities.

It’s time to make your voice heard and show your support for the university!

The House Finance Committee is hearing public testimony this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and it’s critical that legislators hear your story about why the university matters to you, your family and friends, and our communities. If you’re wondering what to say, you can start by thanking legislators for their support of the University of Alaska.

Here’s where the university’s budget stands right now:

  • During last week’s closeout hearing of the university’s budget subcommittee, an amendment sponsored by Rep. Adam Wool added $19 million to the university’s operating budget.
  •  On Monday, subcommittee chair Rep. David Guttenberg presented that amendment to the full House Finance Committee, where it passed on a vote of 8-3 with bipartisan support.
  •  The university’s FY19 operating budget currently stands at $336 million.

Testify either by going to your local Legislative Information Office (LIO) or by calling in during the time specified below. Find your LIO here: http://akleg.gov/lios.php. If you can’t make it to an LIO, you may call in during time allocated for the Off Net Sites – in Juneau, call 907-586-9085, in Anchorage, call 907-563-9085, and in all other locations, call 844-586-9085.

When contacting legislators, avoid using university email or other resources, and do so on your own time, such as lunch time or after work.
