Mission Statement

Alaska Pacific University is an intentionally small- private- independent university devoted to innovative teaching and learning- where students receive personal attention in small classes and acquire leadership capabilities- moral character- and self-direction through active learning. To achieve these educational goals Alaska Pacific University: • Nurtures spiritual and moral values consistent with the university’s Christian heritage while respecting the religious convictions of all. • Emphasizes personal growth through student-centered- experiential education using Alaska- the Arctic- and the Pacific Rim as laboratories for learning; • Develops leadership for active service to society by encouraging openness to positive change- environmental awareness- innovation- and individual initiative; • Promotes international and multicultural education while welcoming learners of all ages: from Alaska- with a special commitment to Alaska Natives; from other states of the United States; and from the international community; • Maintains academic excellence by combining the breadth- integrative understanding- and critical thinking of the liberal arts with practice and focused knowledge for professional careers.
