UAF Animal Resource Center
Visit their new website at: https://www.uafarc.com/
The care of animals is a shared responsibility between the University and our investigators and instructors. Most institutions recognize that animal resources are specialized professionally, economically, and organizationally and that it is preferable to have one centralized unit responsible for all research and teaching animal resources. At UAF the Animal Resource Center is this one centralized unit.
Animals play an essential role in meeting the core mission and themes at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Involving animals in our research and teaching programs helps to engage students as well as to increase our knowledge in biomedical, agricultural, wildlife, and basic biological sciences. At UAF, our Animal Care Program requires that all research activities involving animals must advance human, animal, environmental health and/or add to or improve our fundamental knowledge of a basic biological system.
DVM Degree Program
The University of Alaska Fairbanks has partnered with Colorado State University, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. UAF annually admits 10 students into the program where students do their first two years at UAF then move to Colorado for their final two years. Admission to the veterinary medicine program at Colorado State is open to all students. Hands-on experience, from day one, alongside world-class faculty in an atmosphere designed to help you succeed make the Colorado State University veterinary program unique.
