Where We're From and Where We're Going!
The University of Alaska Fairbanks is a global community. Every semester, our students set off around around the world to enhance their academic programs by experiencing life in a foreign setting. Likewise, students, researchers, and faculty members come from around the world to contribute to learning, teaching, research, and community service activities that are central to the university's mission. In the process, they greatly enrich our campus and the experience of all of our students.
The map below shows where we're from and where we're going. Our Nanooks span the globe. The map legend below explains what each of the symbols represent. Each placemark corresponds to an individual student or scholar. Try clicking the "Earth" view in the upper left-hand corner to gain a truly "global" perspective of our international community (you may be prompted to install the Google Earth browser plug-in).
Each blue pin on the map represents the home cities of the international exchange students we have at UAF during the current academic year.
