Mission and Goals of the University of Alaska Fairbanks
The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) is a multicampus institution with responsibility for providing a range of programs including public service, research and doctoral programs, liberal arts and professional undergraduate and graduate education, certificate and associate degree vocational education, and developmental and life-long learning to traditional as well as nontraditional students.
UAF is a separately accredited major academic and administrative unit of the University of Alaska, the state's only publicly supported system of higher education. UAF is the only unit within the institution with a large number of rural campuses throughout the state and the only unit with responsibility to deliver programs and courses to off-campus place-bound rural students through distance delivery methods.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks is committed to having a diverse student body, and it actively recruits and encourages the enrollment of underrepresented students from local, state, national, and international communities.
Since 2011, UAF's educator preparation programs
in the School of Education have been nationally
recognized for high quality teacher preparation.
The Elementary, Music Education, Secondary and
Special Education initial licensure programs are
nationally accredited by the Council for the
Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)
