Making our mark on Alaska

As we considered article ideas for the Fall/Winter 2012 edition of Accolades—UAA: Making our mark on Alaska—we were thrilled with the range of stories at UAA that exemplify this theme. Though we are a relatively young university, the impact we've made in the lives of Alaskans has been a lasting one. And we're just getting started.
