Center for Health and Counseling

The Student Health and Counseling Center helps you be healthy, body and mind. The center offers general health care, health education, counseling, alcohol abuse evaluation, and can coordinate your student health insurance. The center is right across from Wood Center, so help is never far away.

Department of Equity and Compliance

Staff in the Department of Equity and Compliance lead a focused effort to build inclusive systems and a welcoming environment at UAF. Their staff provide conflict resolution and mediation services, ensure equality of employment and educational opportunity, and work to eradicate discriminatory practices. Their staff investigate complaints of discrimination and sexual harassment and work with parties to find resolution. If students or employees believe they are being treated differently because of their race, color, national origin, gender, religion, disability, age (over 40), genetic code, sexual orientation or retaliation, they can lodge a complaint with the Department of Equity and Compliance.

Resource and Advocacy Center

A confidential advocate can provide confidential support, information on complainant's rights, information about the process of reporting to Title IX and/or law enforcement, legal information, and statewide resource referral for those experiencing sexual harassment, sexual violence and/or domestic violence. The Resource and Advocacy Center located on the UAF campus is operated by the Interior Alaska Center for Non-violent Living and can assist with connecting individuals with statewide resources.
