Be a part of something BIGGER…connections, impact, membership

Together we are a network — we are UAS ambassadors, helping to share and spread the positive impact UAS has on the lives of our students, our communities, state, and beyond. UAS Alumni & Friends volunteer and share their time and talents; network with students, fellow alums, and community partners; and share the spirit of UAS and the Southeast Alaskan environment that helped shape who they are today.

UASAA invites you to join our network as an alum or “friend” to support UAS and higher education and to be a part of something bigger.
