Renovation and Expansion of Health Sciences Education Facilities
UAS Sitka Campus Complete
A $2.1 million Title III project to design and construct two high tech, multi purpose classrooms, a lab-based science prep and storage space inside the WW II-era hangar space that houses the UAS Sitka Campus has been completed. The new facilities are now in use, online, and integrated into Alaska’s rural distance learning and telemedicine environment. The Certified Nurses Assistant program is using the new Health Sciences classrooms and facilities. The Computer Laboratory is completed and in use and the faculty are moving into their new offices. The Telepresence room and Health Sciences classrooms are part of that renovation as well as the faculty offices.
This project converts a technologically outdated, 10-year old computer facility into offices and modules designed to support distance learning and telemedicine training. Faculty offices and collaborative learning areas immediately adjacent to the new Health Sciences laboratory and classroom complex facilitates integration with the advanced telecommunications network being deployed throughout rural Alaska. In addition, it allows for effective and efficient use of the new facilities by students, both local and distance.
State of the art facilities are part of the UAS Sitka campus remodel.
