UAF Community Outreach
Serving Alaska

Since our beginnings over 100 years ago, UAF has been a integral part of the community we serve. Alaskans come to us for community events, radio programming, gardening advice, museum exhibits, and historical information.  We are proud to be a part of our community and a resource for Alaskans! 

You can support some of our community programs by clicking the button below.

Alaska Sea Grant

Alaska Sea Grant is a federal/university partnership between UAF and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We have been serving Alaska for more than 50 years, conducting research, education, and outreach in coastal communities across the state. Your gift will help us continue our work to support healthy coastal ecosystems, economies, and communities.

Cooperative Extension:

UAF's public service and community engagement role is filled in part by Extension educators, faculty and staff located across the state.  Extension offers hundreds of publications, written and produced by university specialists, which contain practical information of interest to Alaska residents.  Major program areas include: agriculture and horticulture; health, home and family development; natural resources and community development; 4-H and youth development. Your gift will support programs, staff and facilities at the Cooperative Extension.

Charles C. Georgeson Botanical Garden:

The Georgeson Botanical Garden (GBG) is a nationally recognized botanical garden and a member of a network of educational and research institutions dedicated to plant culture and conservation.  It is located at the Fairbanks Experiment Farm and is part of the School of Natural Resources and Extension at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  Your gift will support program, research and facilities at the Garden.  


KUAC-FM and KUAC-TV were the first public radio and television stations in the 49th state. They were established so that Alaskans would have access to the same opportunities as other Americans. Connecting Alaska to the world was a challenge for broadcasters in those days. Over the last decades, much has changed. However, the core purpose remains the same: Improving lives through broadcasting. Your gift will provide general support for KUAC operations.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI):

OLLI is a program of UAF led and supported by its membership. OLLI at UAF offers a rich array of classes and learning opportunities for adults who are 50 or older. You can explore academic and general interest classes in an atmosphere that is intellectually challenging, but without the stress of test and grades. Members are invited from all backgrounds: a college education is not a prerequisite for membership. We are a membership-based organization; you must be a member in order to enroll in classes. 

UA Museum of the North:

The University of Alaska Museum of the North is a thriving visitor attraction, a vital component of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the only research and teaching museum in Alaska. Your gift will support educational programs for all ages, research and safekeeping of collections at the UA Museum of the North.
