Looking for ways to support a culture of education in Alaska?

Our Alaskan legislators are currently grappling with the state’s fiscal values and considering policies affecting education at all levels. Your can help to ensure that they remember the university’s importance to the state’s future. Please add your voice to this effort. 

Who do I contact?

The Office of the Governor: Especially before the governor submits a budget proposal let the governor know that you value a strong university and how you are willing to fund it.

Your legislator: Legislators do pay attention to their constituents. With long days and difficult work, a personal postcard or phone call from a neighbor back home is often welcomed by a legislator. It is this personal touch that can raise your voice above the special interests.

Not sure who your legislator's are: check state maps or contact us.

How to be Heard

  • Identify yourself. If you are a constituent in the legislator’s district, say so.

  • Tell them why you are writing or calling. What action do you want them to take? Provide a clear, obtainable goal.

  • Why should they take that action? A personal story helps here.

  • Offer clear evidence and reasoning in support of the action you are asking them to take.

  • Reiterate your request for action.

  • Be sure to thank them for their time and consideration of your input!
