Director's Greeting

 

Welcome to Kodiak College located on Kodiak Island, Alaska’s Emerald Isle. Kodiak Island is one of many islands that create the Kodiak Archipelago, the home of the Alutiiq people for more than 7,500 years.  A community campus of the University of Alaska Anchorage, Kodiak College is nestled in the midst of a 44 acre spruce forest about two-miles from downtown Kodiak.

I invite you to explore our website and learn of the number of programs and courses we offer both on-campus and through eLearning, both for credit, and non-credit. Kodiak College has a strong Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language programs, and a growing Maritime Workforce Development program.

Kodiak College offers student-centered educational and training services to a small and very diverse campus community.  Our faculty and staff are simply outstanding: They are dedicated to serving students, and the communities in which they live. Our faculty and staff constantly endeavor to make your educational experience very fulfilling by providing personal attention in a welcoming learning environment.

Our service area includes the communities of the Kodiak Archipelago including Kodiak, the village of Chiniak, and six remote Alaska Native villages including Akhiok, Karluk, Old Harbor, Ouzinkie, Port Lions, and Larsen Bay accessible primarily by small airplane or boat.  Our service area also includes the largest U.S. Coast Guard Base in the United States, located roughly five-miles south of the City of Kodiak.  But out students are not limited to these areas, our strong distance education course offerings attract students from across Alaska, the Lower 48, and internationally.

Thank you again for your interest in Kodiak College, where we have been serving students since 1968.  Please feel free to stop by my office in the Benny Benson Building for a chat.

Sincerely,

Alan P. Fugleberg,

Campus Director
