Dear staff and faculty, 

Earlier today, UA President Pat Pitney sent out a message to the UA community outlining a change in COVID-19 vaccination requirements for UAF. This is a positive step to preserve our ability to receive federal funds, thus protecting UAF’s research enterprise. This step is also one that will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  

The President is instituting a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for all UAF employees at the Troth Yeddha’ Campus (Fairbanks), as well as UAF employees in research units outside Fairbanks, including student employees. Later today, all UAF employees will receive an email from UA HR with additional information, including the process to verify vaccination or request exemptions.

Please visit the Alaska State vaccination website to find out where you can get vaccinated. If you have already received the COVID-19 vaccination, I encourage you to get your booster if you qualify.

Thanks for staying safe, and thanks for choosing UAF. 

— Dan White, chancellor
