WELCOME!

Pete Pinney, Interim Vice Chancellor/ Executive Dean for Rural, Community and Native Education

Welcome to the information portal for the College of Rural and Community Development. CRCD serves the community college mission for UAF with our focus on workforce development, career and technical education and academic preparation for college. We offer certificates, associates, baccalaureate and master’s degree programs statewide. CRCD is also an integral part of the doctoral program in Indigenous Studies.

CRCD’s community campuses in Fairbanks, Bethel, Dillingham, Nome, Kotzebue, and centers in Galena, Ft. Yukon, Tok, Unalaska, McGrath, Shishmaref, Unalakleet, Togiak, King Salmon, and Delta reach 160 communities statewide. The lack of roads and infrastructure compel our faculty and staff to be creative and innovative in course design and delivery. Courses are available across the regions. Our faculty is well versed in E-live, Blackboard, and audio conference learning platforms.

Our commitment to life-long learning takes many forms. Rural Student Services and campus staff or faculty advisors can assist you with admission, registration, course requirements, degree checklists and financial aid. CRCD partners with school districts, cities, tribes, health corporations, and employers to improve learning outcomes, provide internships and scholarships, and serve on advisory councils for educational programming.

As one of seven schools and colleges that make up the University of Alaska Fairbanks, we take great pride in offering service at the point of need, regardless of location. We take great pride in our effort to provide you the academic resources you need to reach your academic goal.
