The University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) is located in the largest city in the United States’ only Arctic state, and as such we seek to leverage our position in the “gateway to the Arctic” to broaden understandings of the Arctic among Alaskans as well as citizens and colleagues across the nation and circumpolar north and policymakers at the local, state, national and international levels. UAA faculty, students and staff at engage in a broad array of activities around Arctic issues and topics, from research to creative activities to teaching and learning.
