University & Graduate Success

ANSEP was started in 1995 with one student. Since 1995 our university has graduated hundreds of Alaska Native scientists and engineers. Hundreds more are university students now. Thousands are in the K-PhD pipeline.

Our ANSEP University Success component is an academic learning community composed of students, faculty, staff, and external partners who are focused on the academic success as well as the personal and professional development of each student. Students are co-enrolled in classes, participate in organized study groups, have opportunities for peer and professional mentoring, do undergraduate research projects, work summer internships, and participate in planned group social activities. ANSEP students understand the importance of community and teamwork in working together to be successful.

ANSEP University Success supports students in STEM degree programs as well as CBPP programs and CBSM programs.
