Research, Scholary, & Creative Activity
As Alaska’s Land, Sea, and Space Grant and only doctoral-granting institution, UAF is the center for scholarship, research and artistic expression in the state. UAF’s geographic position, its expertise and the reputation of its faculty have provided it with a well-earned reputation as the major research university for Arctic and Northern studies in the United States.
At UAF, scholarship, research, and creative activities are conducted within departments of colleges and schools and at research institutes and centers. Although funded research occurs within each college and school at UAF, the vast majority occurs within centers and research institutes at the Fairbanks campus and at remote research sites throughout the state.
