The UAA Justice Center, established by the Alaska legislature in 1975, has a mandate to provide statewide justice‐related education, research, and service. The Justice Center is an interdisciplinary unit that provides undergraduate, graduate, and professional education; conducts research in the areas of crime, law, and justice; and provides service to government units, justice agencies, and community organizations throughout urban and rural Alaska to promote a safe, healthy, and just society.
We are an academic and research unit in the College of Health in the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA).
