Role of Governance

The University of Alaska's governance system provides a forum and mechanism whereby faculty, staff, and students may present issues and positions for discussion throughout the university system; whereby they may seek mutual support, may speak with a common voice and may act together on issues affecting the general welfare of the university system community as a whole.

The governance system is established by the University of Alaska Board of Regents Policy 03.01.01. Voting members are elected to unified constituent groups by their peers. UAA's Faculty Senate, APT, Classified Council, and Union of Students constituent groups provide voting representation to the University Assembly. Representative groups provide representation to the system wide governance bodies.

Alumni associations are active in all three universities.
