University of Alaska Anchorage
CAFE, AI&e, and CCEL are working to support faculty as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by providing teaching and learning-related resources designed to enable continued work with students. UAA's institutional goal is to continue supporting students as they make progress toward the completion of a course or program in the normal timeframe for the term. Keep things simple, focus on as-yet-unmet learning outcomes, and modify teaching/learning expectations to what is manageable and doable for you and your students.

Community Engaged Institution
CCEL connects academic programs with community needs to use scholarship and action for the mutual benefit of the University and the State, its communities, and its diverse peoples.
Since 2006, UAA has been recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a “Community Engaged Institution.” CCEL serves as a central locus for the intersection of student learning, faculty research, and community engagement. UAA uses the Carnegie Foundation's definition of community engagement for our work with communities: "Community Engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity."
