The University of Alaska: Extraordinary Partners
Since the early planning for 360 North, the University of Alaska system has been a key strategic programming partner.
At 360 North, our strategy has been to provide as much interesting information about Alaska and the North to our audience as possible. As a leader in education, research and public discourse, UA offers a litany of public events and presentations across the state. And, system-wide their cooperation has made these offerings available to all Alaskans on 360 North.
The following list represents the current programs that 360 North is able to offer through our relationship with various University of Alaska units and campuses. And, the list illustrates why we consider The University of Alaska to be our program partner of the year. We thank president Hamilton and everyone within the UA system for their cooperation and support.
