Thank you for supporting the UAF College of Liberal Arts during our first UA Giving Day 2020! You can still make a gift to support CLA by visiting: engage.alaska.edu/uaf/cla
UAF's College of Liberal Arts is an incubator for change makers. CLA shapes and engages all facets of the human spirit through the arts, humanities, social sciences, and languages. Our graduates enter the workforce with the drive, passion and most important experience that employers seek.
In 1917, the campus was a single two-story frame building and had just six students. Today, the University of Alaska Fairbanks has grown to nearly 9,000 students seeking everything from associates degrees to Ph.D.s. The College of Liberal Arts is a collection of departments in the arts, humanities, languages and social sciences. With 18 departments and more than 40 degree programs, we are able to create a highly inter-disciplinary academic environment, greatly influenced by our location in Fairbanks. Whether in an art studio or research lab, the College of Liberal Arts is always naturally inspiring.
Now, more than ever, your gift to the College of Liberal Arts makes a difference to areas that are vital to student success. On Giving Day we especially welcome gifts to these two areas:
College of Liberal Arts Support
Your gifts will support CLA’s areas of greatest opportunities toward success, including our facilities and resources, student scholarships and awards, and faculty and departments/programs.
UAF Music Department Support
Your gifts will support CLA’s Music Department and its success in offering our students, faculty, and community with excellent facilities, equipment, education, events, and opportunities.
