Kiana Morris, Political Science major/Justice minor, is one of five UAA students who will spend the spring semester in Juneau as legislative aides.

Kiana grew up in a small town in Minnesota. She chose UAA because the political science program here (she’s a political science major/justice minor) included this legislative internship program. “Lots of political science programs don’t offer anything like this,” she said. Alaska’s small population size makes this sort of up-close engagement possible, she said.

The other UAA students are German Baquero, Mark Simon, Kevin Prestegard and Trevor Gutierrez.
