UAF is a Land, Sea and Space Grant institution with an enrollment of more than 9,000 students. Located 160 miles south of the Arctic Circle, UAF is the only doctoral-degree-granting institution in the state. Since it was founded in 1917, UAF has been internationally recognized for research relating to the Arctic and subarctic, in areas such as biology, geophysics, engineering, natural resources, and global climate change. The School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences and the Alaska Agricultural Experiment Station has roots in the very founding of the University of Alaska, when it was known as the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines. The people who have influenced the history of the university have, first and foremost, been its students.
