Celebration of Giving and Emil Usibelli Awards

The Celebration of Giving celebrated the individuals, corporations and foundations whose philanthropic gifts are imperative to UAF's success. In an ongoing spirit of gratitude and recognition, we now celebrate these donors and friends during the Blue and Gold Gala.

The Emil Usibelli Distinguished Teaching, Research and Service Awards are among the university’s most prestigious awards. They represent UAF’s tripartite mission and are funded annually from an endowment established by the Usibelli Coal Mine in 1992.

These awards are now celebrated during the Blue and Gold Gala.
