CASR provides a connecting center for all those involved with security, hazards (both
natural and manmade), disaster response, and preparedness research and will build
upon the existent, vibrant, UAF research enterprise. UAF is a recognized world class
research institution with a research budget of more than $120M per year, the majority
of which resides within the founding institutes and schools as part of this proposal.
- UAF has world leading expertise across its institutes, colleges and schools
- The research enterprise attracts $150M - $170M a year in external funding.
- UAF is the only Land, Sea and Space Grant institution in the state of Alaska and one
of very few in the U.S.
- Building research and outreach to meet state needs are at the core of the center’s
UAF research units, projects, and organizations with ties to the center are linked
