Anchorage Area Senators
Key to Star Ratings
The UAA Faculty and Staff Association recognizes the critical role of Alaska state legislators in supporting the University of Alaska Anchorage. Note the ratings are based on the last three years.
At a minimum One Star legislators are expected to vote upon the state’s operating and capital budgets in such a manner as to move the operating and capital budgets along the legislative process in a timely manner.
A Two Star rating indicates passive support for the university. For example, the legislator stays informed on UA issues and overall supports the goals of the university. The legislator may attend campus events.
A Three Star rating indicates more active support of the university. For example, the legislator stays informed on university issues, highlights the university in newsletters or emails, visits the university, and actively speaks out on behalf of UAA in community groups. During the session, the legislator supports UA’s budget requests and goals. This legislator may have a student intern or a UAA graduate on staff.
A Four Star rating indicates continuous visible support of the university. For example, the legislator is a sponsor or cosponsor of favorable legislation, appropriations, or amendments and shows leadership in addressing the needs of the university. The legislator also displays active support for the university in a manner described for the three star rating.
Zero stars indicate no visible support for the university.
