Mission Statement

The University of Alaska Museum of the North, located at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, is a major resource center for the public and for scholars. The Museum's mission is to acquire, conserve, investigate, and interpret specimens and collections relating to the natural, artistic, and cultural heritage of Alaska and the Circumpolar North. Through education, research, and public exhibits, the Museum serves the state, national, and international science programs. The Museum develops and uses botanical, geological, zoological, and cultural collections; these collections form the basis for understanding past and present issues unique to the North and meeting the challenges of the future.

Description

Education is one of the primary missions of the University of Alaska Museum of the North, and the goal of Museum Education is to facilitate the public's access to information about Alaska's social and natural phenomena. Museum Education is dedicated to providing life-long learning experiences for the Fairbanks community and students of all ages throughout the state. Through the interpretation of Alaska's natural and cultural history we provide living, hands-on, age appropriate opportunities to engage visitors in learning about this unique environment we call home. These experiences extend to communities outside of Fairbanks through travel, technology, and the generous contribution of time from Museum volunteers.
