Project Date: 2009
Project Lead: Beth Corven
Client: University of Alaska Fairbanks

The College of Rural and Community Development was awarded $150,000 to enhance and improve a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program in rural Alaskan communities to improve the academic and career/technical skills of rural students in the health field. The project will result in an increase in students entering the healthcare workforce with health care experience and education and an increase in the number of students entering the university system to pursue a postsecondary course of studies in the health field.
