International Faculty and Staff Services is pleased to provide immigration and other advising for departments who wish to invite foreign faculty and scholars to conduct research and teaching programs at University of Alaska Anchorage. Collaborating with international faculty and scholars can deliver a variety of benefits to all parties involved including new professional, research, cultural and social insights. Hosting foreign professionals is also a valuable way of keeping in step with globalization and contributing to University of Alaska Anchorage's education goals. The University of Alaska Anchorage has designated a Senior Human Resources Consultant to assist departments and foreign national faculty and staff in employment matters. Our International Faculty and Staff Services area assists international faculty, staff, and visitors with non-immigrant and immigrant visas. We also coordinate with other campus offices to develop programming and activities to insure UAA's international faculty, and visitors are fully integrated into the campus community.
