UAF College of Rural and Community Development

Thank you for supporting the UAF College of Rural and Community Development during our first UA Giving Day 2020! You can still make a gift to support CRCD by visiting:



The College of Rural and Community Development (CRCD) is a learning organization for its many students, faculty and communities through meaningful and beneficial collaborations built upon local values. CRCD’s community campuses in Fairbanks, Bethel, Dillingham, Nome, Kotzebue, and centers in Galena, Ft. Yukon, Tok, Unalaska, McGrath, Shishmaref, Unalakleet, Togiak, King Salmon, and Delta reach 160 communities statewide. The lack of roads and infrastructure compel our faculty and staff to be creative and innovative in course design and delivery.


Your help is needed more than ever to ensure CRCD students have what they need to reach their goals. Make a difference today by donating to one of these crucial areas:


  • College of Rural and Community Development (CRCD) provides academic and vocational education and outreach to campuses serving an area nearly two-thirds of the state and representing more than 160 Alaska Native communities.

  • Rural Student Services (RSS) provides rural students with culturally relevant advising and assistance to help them meet their academic goals. RSS helps to ease the culture shock that occurs when someone leaves their home community for the first time to attend UAF.

  • Eileen Panigeo MacLean’s House provides rural students with a safe and supportive community to ease the transition to university life.

  • Rural Alaska Honors Institute provides rural Alaska high school students a chance to find out what it's like to be a college student. 

  • UAF Indigenous Scholarship Fund provides scholarship assistance to students who are members of federally recognized tribes or eligible for such membership.

  • Specific campus support: Bristol Bay Campus, Chukchi Campus, Interior Alaska Campus, Kuskokwim Campus, Northwest Campus
