As we look for ways to create a legacy of opportunity for present and future generations in Alaska, we need look no further than our own University. Strong universities create sustained economic opportunities for the surrounding communities.

These contributions were made to support the engineering programs that are training engineers for future employment in Alaskan enterprises.
