Alaska Native Programs
Meet Our Students
UAA serves over 2000 Alaska Natives, American Indian, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students. We graduate over 250 AN/AI students each year in over 25 degree programs. Our campuses, located in Anchorage, Mat-Su, Kenai, Kodiak and Prince William Sound are located on the traditional homelands of the Dena'ina and Ahtna Athabascan, Alutiiq/Sugpiaq, and Eyak peoples.
Anchorage is sometimes affectionately called “Alaska’s largest village” and has been identified as the city with the highest percentage of Alaska Natives and American Indians in the United States; UAA offers a variety of Alaska Native programs, services, and opportunities.
