I accepted the opportunity today for a “behind-the-scenes” tour of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) Sports Complex and Allied Health Sciences Building. The purpose of the tour was to make legislators more aware of how UAA student population growth requires updated facilities. The need was evident. The tour ended with remarks by University Chancellor Fran Ulmer (formerly a legislator), the UAA Student Body President, and the legislators. The upper photo shows Chancellor Ulmer speaking with our group. The lower photo shows me with Fran Ulmer on my left and, on my right, my constituent Steve Rollins, Dean of the UAA Library.

I believe our university system is the intellectual foundation for building Alaska’s future. As the university succeeds in its mission, so too will our state.
