Dear faculty and staff,

Welcome to the fall semester! I hope you were able to enjoy our beautiful summer, whether you were here in Alaska or spent time out of state. It was rejuvenating to see students back on campus last week for orientation and move-in! Thanks to all the staff and faculty who worked to make Rev-it-up and New Student Orientation a time and place for belonging for our new students.

UAF continues to provide groundbreaking research, world-class education and vital services to the local and global community. Thanks to you, we continue to make important strides toward our long-term institutional goals. I look forward to working together in the coming year to continue this progress.

Please join me Thursday, Sept. 29 at 1:15 p.m. in the Davis Concert Hall for 2022 Convocation. Keep an eye out for more details about the scavenger hunt leading up to Convocation, which may include prizes (ok, will include prizes). I also invite you to acknowledge your colleagues via this form. A selection of shout-outs will be included in my remarks as well as on the screens in the Great Hall during the ice cream social, following Convocation.  

Thank you for your commitment to UAF and to our students.

Thank you for choosing UAF.

— Dan White, chancellor
