The Interior Alaska Campus (IAC) at University of Alaska Fairbanks offers programs and support services to meet the unique needs of rural Alaskans. All our programs are bound by a common thread: to be community driven and culturally responsive.

IAC works with villages, tribal governments and community employers to identify workforce needs and provide relevant education — opportunities such as our Construction Trades Technology, Content Creators and Wildland Fire Science programs.

Communities and students are our top priority. Whether you’re interested in taking a single course or completing a degree, you’ll find that our faculty and advisors are here to work with you one-on-one every step of your journey and make sure you have all the tools to succeed.




Learning about the growth mindset and being able to identify this mindset within myself has really helped me accomplish quite a bit over the last few months. For example, I would have never considered applying for Honors College, but after the work and pride I took in my final essay, I’ve opened myself up to the idea of applying and getting more heavily involved in school and community clean-up projects.IAC Student, 2021
