The First 50 Years

In 2004, the University of Alaska Anchorage celebrated 50 years of public higher education in southcentral Alaska.  Home to almost 21,000 students, it is a major regional university with programs ranging from non-credit, non-degree courses to graduate degrees. UAA is now the largest of the University of Alaska schools, and, beyond doubt, one of the most important institutions, public or private, in the state of Alaska.
