To honor Alaska’s first people and strengthen the bridge between their cultures and higher education, we will develop the Troth Yeddha’ Park and an indigenous studies center. As a statewide academic center with close connections to other UAF institutes, the Troth Yeddha’ facilities will be distinct from other establishments that celebrate specific Alaska Native cultures. The Troth Yeddha’ initiative builds on UAF’s decades-long history of service to rural and Native students through entities such as the Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development and the Tribal Management and Native Arts programs.• The goal for this fundraising initiative is $25 million to complete the vision in two phases. More details at www.uaf.edu/trothyeddha/.
The work of the Alaska Center for Energy and Power affects every Alaskan because energy affects us all. The leading center works with partners to develop and showcase practical, cost-effective and innovative energy solutions. The center has outgrown its facilities and needs a new, permanent home. The fourth floor of our new engineering facility will be dedicated to the Alaska Center for Energy and Power. There, new, innovative labs and workspace will equip researchers and students to fulfill real-world energy needs.• We pledge to raise $6.5 million in private funds to complete the project and naming opportunities are available. More details at http://acep.uaf.edu/.
To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we aim to create a legacy where education is more affordable at UAF. Through the Centennial Cornerstone Scholarship and Fellowship Endowment, private funds will be raised to boost existing scholarship and fellowship awards, while creating new funds to support students at UAF. We believe that enhanced student aid helps retain the most talented of students. With fewer financial concerns, these students can focus chiefly on their studies, thereby reaching their full potential.• This initiative launched April 2015 with a goal to raise $1 million in new scholarship support.
