In this episode, we’re bringing you a second installment from the University of Alaska Southeast’s fall lecture series Evening at Egan. In this discussion, you’ll learn about the Alaska Native Success Initiative (ANSI), led by Dr. Pearl Brower and Ronalda Cadiente Brown - UA Senior Advisor for Alaska Native Success, Institutional Diversity, and Student Engagement and UAS Associate Vice Chancellor for Alaska Native Programs, respectively.

Tune in as Dr. Brower and Ms. Cadiente Brown illustrate the principal priorities of ANSI, seeking to improve the participation and success of Alaska Natives through educational achievement statewide, as well as Alaska Native representation and success throughout the University of Alaska system. Working with leaders from Alaska Native corporations, tribal entities, and other southeast organizations, Pearl and Ronalda strive to create spaces where Alaska Native and indigenous students, faculty, and staff feel welcome and heard.


- Pearl and Ronalda’s road to higher education

- The drive behind the Alaska Native Success Initiative (ANSI)

- ANSI’s five priorities and strategies for the future

- The need for increased indigenous visual representation

- Recruitment and retention of Alaska Native students and faculty

- Connecting and engaging with the community


“The whole system saw a need to put some focus on why Alaska Native students, faculty, and staff were not succeeding within the university system.”

“When we talk about Alaska Native student success, or we just talk about Alaska Native success in general, it really translates to success for everyone. The work that we're doing will contribute overall to a healthier university and a healthier Alaska.”
