"Make it Monday" forum - UAA: Anchorage's Partner in Economic Recovery and Workforce Development
In response to state and municipal needs to help Alaska’s workforce upscale and retool to grow our economy, UAA introduced a suite of Fast Track Career Certificates based on current and emerging state economic trends, as well as feedback from industry partners and state and local officials regarding real-time employment needs.
On Monday, join us and College of Business & Public Policy Dean, Dr. John Nofsinger, to learn more about these ongoing collaborative efforts that now include $3 million in federal COVID relief funds allocated by the municipality. This has made it possible for UAA to provide full scholarships for up to 300 eligible students, plus housing stipends, as they enroll in the university’s certificate programs. More information at uaa.alaska.edu/fasttrack.
