"UAF is the Center for Life Advancement. This is where students discover their passions and apply their knowledge and skills to enhance their lives and the lives of those around them” -Maya Salganek, Theatre & Film.

A liberal arts education sharpens critical thinking and comprehension skills necessary to navigate life and the workforce; unleashes creative passions, provides opportunities to hone and practice knowledge and talents, and provides a conduit to experience a more fulfilling life.

The world is interconnected. Ideas, concepts, theories, policies, governments, organizations and organisms both big and small live exist in a web of connections. A liberal arts degree is about those connections and a liberal arts curriculum engages students to explore those connections for deeper meaning and understanding when thinking about problems and solutions.

Sarah Manriquez

UAF College of Liberal Arts Public Information Officer

Gruening 407

My expertise is in digital marketing and social media management. I am a jill of all trades and bring photography, videography, and graphic design to my position as the CLA PIO.

If you belong to the CLA family as a student, faculty, staff, alumni, or otherwise and have an event, fundraiser, accolade, or story you want to share with the public- I'm your first stop!

I oversee the UAF College of Liberal Arts social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok and CLA's Digital Sign. I am also the contact person for Cornerstone submissions in CLA.

Do you need updated photos for your website? Do you need graphics for your social media campaign for that upcoming event you're working on? Do you want to make a video about how awesome your class is? I can help with that and so much more.

Let's schedule a meeting and make a plan!
