edX Welcomes University of Alaska Fairbanks

We are excited to announce that the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) is the latest university to join the global edX partner community.

Known as ‘America’s Arctic university,’ UAF is home to scholars and adventurers alike. With a focus on studying the Arctic circle and its diverse peoples, and creating a center for science, education and the arts, UAF brings this passion and expertise to edX. 

UAF is launching with five courses on edX in subjects ranging from health and safety to environmental studies and earth sciences. All courses are open for enrollment today. 

edX and UAF share a commitment to providing high-quality, world-class education to edX’s over 33 million learners around the world. We look forward to expanding our partnership and sharing UAF’s Arctic research on a global scale.

Please join me in welcoming University of Alaska Fairbanks to edX.
