This year’s number of awards is among the highest granted at commencement. UAS awarded 755 associate, bachelor, and master’s degrees along with occupational endorsements, certificates, and professional licensures at commencement ceremonies April 29, 30 and May 1. Awards were granted to 670 graduates from the Juneau, Ketchikan, and Sitka campuses. “We are enormously proud of the accomplishments of these UAS graduates,” said Chancellor Rick Caulfield. “Many are first-generation college students—the first in their family to achieve this level of education. Others are older non-traditional students who are already employed and raising a family but are working hard to improve their education, their skills, and the well-being of their families.”
