We are halfway through a busy and eventful semester!
Many Alaskans are speaking with their legislators and sharing their opinion about the Governor's proposed cuts to publicly funded programs and institutions including UA.
The Governor's proposed FY20 budget is still in review in the legislative branch, and the process is a long way from over. We cannot predict what the eventual outcome of that process will be. However, we are committed to minimizing any negative impacts a final budget with funding cuts may have our College.
As a College of Health student, you are our priority. We are determined to help you achieve your educational goals here at UAA. I know many of you have been asking your faculty what you can do right now. Here's my advice:
- Focus on your education! Passing your exams and finishing your degree are the most important actions you can take at this moment.
- You can always reach out if you feel overwhelmed. Dr. Kendra Sticka, our director of Student Success, and your academic advisor can help guide you on a successful path to your degree. Additionally, if you need help processing your emotions, you can stop in or make an appointment at the UAA Student Health and Counseling Center or reach out to your faculty.
We need you to stay the course in your studies!
You are the future of Alaska's healthcare. I have every confidence that you can succeed in the degree program you have chosen here at UAA. Everyone in the Dean's Office and every faculty and staff member in the College of Health are working hard to make sure you have the tools you need to do well.
Don't forget that the
