Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2009, Anchorage-based Alaska Pacific University is a four-year liberal arts school on a 170-acre wooded main campus near the foothills of the Chugach Mountains. The 700-acre Kellogg campus 45 miles east of Anchorage serves as the university’s environmental learning center and is home to Spring Creek Farm APU’s community service agriculture project. APU attracts students from around Alaska, the United States and the world. The university offers two-year, four-year, master’s and doctorate level programs. Intentionally small class sizes underscore APU’s commitment to student-centered, experiential learning that emphasizes rigorous academics and challenging field work in the arts and sciences.
