At the UAF College of Rural and Community Development, we offer academic programs designed to serve Alaska and build a new generation of leaders. Our programs build strong individuals and sustainable communities.
From conducting original research and writing about your experiences, engaging in community services initiatives, to helping draft policy and legislation, there’s no limit to hands-on learning at CRCD.
The College of Rural and Community Development staff, faculty, and leadership are dedicated to supporting students throughout their education journey.
Our students come from all over Alaska and the world — especially rural communities throughout the state. We learn from our students and their experiences every day. Hear from their experiences at CRCD.
At CRCD, we love to gather and celebrate. From Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations to the Festival of Native Arts, to symposiums to webinar series, there are always opportunities to learn as a community.
