UAS and Sealaska Heritage Institute are submitting a $2.3M partnership grant proposal to expand Northwest Coast Arts opportunities in Juneau and throughout Southeast Alaska. The proposal to the federal Alaska Native Education Program would expand credit and non-credit opportunities, share resources at the Walter Sobeloff Center and UAS campus, and help UAS fulfill its mission of incorporating the cultures and environment of Southeast Alaska into its curriculum. It includes a partnership with the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe. UAS Humanities faculty expressed support for the proposal and this exciting new possibility.
