Dear UAF community,

On Monday we will take time off to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and celebrate Alaska Civil Rights. This is an opportunity for all of us to contemplate the challenges many have faced throughout our history, the progress made thus far, and the work that remains to be done.

We also have an opportunity for self-reflection as members of the UAF community. As we strive to build a belonging, inclusive and caring community, we must ensure we do more than just talk about those values. Let each of us promote them through everyday actions as we work together to make UAF a place where all voices are equally heard, and where every person may reach their potential.

The spirit of Monday’s holiday isn’t limited to a single day, and the most impactful tribute to the legacies of Dr. King, Elizabeth Peratrovich, Katie John, and other civil rights leaders in our history is to support equality and justice each and every day of the year.

Thanks for choosing UAF.

Dan White, chancellor
