Welcome to the UAF School of Education

The School of Education (SOE) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks faculty and staff strive to model, in their interactions with candidates at both the preservice and graduate levels, the three critical characteristics that our candidates embody when they leave the program: professional, culturally responsive, and effective. These characteristics form the basis for our graduates’ continued professional development and the formation of healthy and respectful relationships with their students, families and communities in which they live and work.

Courses required in all programs ensure that candidates in undergraduate/preservice education and graduate programs in education and counseling understand how the historical, political, economic, and social factors are interrelated and impact culturally responsive education and the issues of access and equity in Alaska’s schools.

In this spirit, the School of Education is committed to preparing and retaining the best possible K-12 educators for this far north, geographically, culturally and linguistically diverse state.
