  • Happy Elizabeth Peratrovich Day!

    Today, Alaska recognizes an Alaska Native civil rights leader, Elizabeth Peratrovich.

    The Alaska Legislature established February 16th as Elizabeth Peratrovich Day to recognize and memorialize Elizabeth “for her courageous, unceasing efforts to eliminate discrimination and bring about equal rights in Alaska” (Alaska Statutes 44.12.065). February 16 is the anniversary of the signing of the Anti-Discrimination Act).

  • UAS faculty, Sonia Nagorski and Susan Kendig share their experience and advice to students in this STEM Corner Juneau Empire article.

    Thank you for sharing!

    "Looking to the future, both professors hope to build on their teaching and research experience at the University of Alaska and continue to provide educational and research opportunities for Alaska students.

    They encourage students to keep an open mind, take risks and explore math and science courses because these classes form the foundation for many interesting applications.

    They recommend pursuing 'things that you like, that you find interesting, that you can make a living doing.' They urge students to build communication skills and to let go of limiting expectations.

    Students, they stress, should not fret about being on a specific track. As these two scientists’ paths illustrate, a vivid adventure or newly-discovered interest can nudge you in a different direction — that of your own meandering path."

    Northwest Coast Arts education continues to expand at the University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) with a recent renewal of its agreement with the Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) and the Institute of American Indian Art (IAIA) in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

This is the place where NWC art and culture, language, performing arts, and art history can merge together for a better future for the next generation, to make a better world that we all share,” remarked Wayne Price, UAS Associate Professor of Northwest Coast Arts.
