A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive experience(s) offered by the institution:

The Resilience and Adaptation Program (RAP) is an interdisciplinary training and education program of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, focusing on sustainability in times of rapid change. The Resilience and Adaptation Program prepares scholars, policy-makers, community leaders, and managers to address issues of sustainability in an integrated fashion.

Through coursework, an internship experience, thesis research, and other training, students enrolled in PhD and masters programs address a major challenge facing humanity: Sustaining the desirable features of Earth's social-ecological systems at a time of rapid change.

The concepts of resilience, adaptation, vulnerability, and transformation serve as unifying themes in research examining global-to-local interactions.

The program prepares students for positions of leadership in academia, government, non-government organizations, education, Native organizations and agency management.

Alaska Natives and members of other minority groups are encouraged to apply.
