• UAA Graduates: How Many Stay and Work in Alaska?

      More and more people have been graduating from the University of Alaska Anchorage in the past decade. Do they stay in Alaska? What kinds of jobs do they have? How much do they earn? It turns out that most of them stay in Alaska for at least five years after they graduate, they work throughout the economy, and by five years after they graduate their average earnings double. Around one-quarter do leave within a few years. But Alaska’s population on the whole is transient, and it looks as if UAA graduates are no more likely than other Alaskans to leave the state. And the limited evidence for those who graduated in the most recent years suggests they may be staying on in higher numbers. These are among the findings of an analysis ISER and UAA’s Office of Institutional Research did for university leaders, who wanted to know more about UAA graduates working in Alaska. It’s based on patterns among nearly 9,000 people who got UAA certificates or degrees from 2003 through 2007. We asked researchers at the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development to compare data on graduates with data on employment and residence, in the years since they graduated. The department’s employment data cover only people working for businesses or state and local governments. There is no comparable data on federal workers or self-employed people. So when we describe graduates working in Alaska, the figures don’t include those who work for the federal government or are self-employed.
    • UAA Inventory: Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Transportation

      As a signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, UAA has agreed to conduct an inventory of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This inventory serves as a baseline against which to measure the effectiveness of GHG emissions reduction projects. To fulfill the Commitment UAA agreed to conduct an inventory of its Scope 1 and 2 emissions, as well as some Scope 3 emissions. In addition to signing the Presidents Climate Commitment, UAA signed the Talloires Declaration in April 2004. The Talloires Declaration is a statement of principles and practices for using higher education to promote sustainability. Scope 1 emissions are defined as direct GHG emissions occurring from sources that are owned or controlled by the institution. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions generated in the production of energy purchased by the institution. Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions that are the consequence of the activities of the institution, but occur from sources not owned or controlled by the institution. Pursuant to the Commitment, this study estimates the levels of two types of Scope 3 GHG emissions – commuting by students and employees, and university-funded air travel. Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions are being estimated in a separate study. Two models were developed and used: a UAA commuter model and a UAA air travel model.

      This Powerpoint presentation describes ongoing research on domestic violence and sexual assault presented to the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA) at its June 2017 quarterly meeting. Research discussed includes a recently completed survey on Alaskans’ knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs (KAB) regarding domestic violence and sexual assault; a Results First Initiative cost-benefit analysis of batterer intervention programs; psychological and physical abuse against women 60 and older from the Alaska Victimization Survey (2010-2015) (AVS) with a comparison to national data from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (2010); and an update on the Alaska Victimization Survey.
