We are very proud of the positive impacts our students and graduates have on their communities. ANS and RD students and graduates are making a difference. With your ANS or RD degree, we know you will too!

If you have any questions or concerns, you're always welcome to call the main Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development office at (907) 474-6528 and we will do our best to help you.

Email Listserves

Email communication is a vital part of the Rural Development program, especially for students away from the Fairbanks campus. Students and faculty use email routinely to share information about the program, degree requirements, scholarship and job opportunities, course planning and related matters. All students in the program are expected to be able to access email.

To facilitate easy communication with all the students and faculty, we've established a "discussion list" for all students, faculty, and staff involved in the program. The discussion list are entitled:

RDMasters-L (for M.A. students)

CRCD-UndergradRD (for B.A. students)

Click on the link to subscribe to the listserve. 

You can subscribe to it at no cost. If you have any trouble adding your email, please send a subscription request to Maria Panozo at

Once you're subscribed you will receive regular updates from faculty, staff, and fellow students.
