Welcome to 我ḷisaġ维克

我ḷisaġ维克 大学 provides educational opportunities to all who wish to pursue their post-secondary education, with an emphasis on the needs of North Slope residents. 我ḷisaġ维克 believes that learning is a continuous, life-long process. The college has designed most of its courses and programs to allow each piece of knowledge to build upon the others. Most courses offered can be applied toward a certificate or degree.


我ḷisaġ维克 大学 was founded to primarily serve the residents of the North Slope Borough, America’s northernmost municipality. The intent of its founders was to provide an education based on the 捕猎人 cultural heritage. The basis for all 我ḷisaġ维克’s educational programs is the rich foundation of a subsistence culture in harmony with the land and seas that give it sustenance.

我ḷisaġ维克 大学 is a direct outgrowth of the Native American self-determination movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. With the formation of a home-rule government called the North Slope Borough in 1972, the Iñupiat people took their first steps towards regaining control of their lives and destinies.

The founders of the North Slope Borough were acutely aware of the importance of education to their dreams of sustained self-determination and local control for their people. While overseeing the rapid transformation of the North Slope Borough from small subsistence communities into modern villages with modern amenities, they also looked towards the development of a post-secondary educational system that would allow local residents to further their educational goals while remaining close to the culture and lifestyle that sustained them.

In 1986, the North Slope Borough created the North Slope Higher 教育 Center, a cooperative effort between the North Slope Borough and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The North Slope Higher 教育 Center’s Board and the North Slope Borough Assembly changed the institution’s name to Arctic Sivunmun 我ḷisaġ维克大学 in 1991 to reflect its transformation into a community college. Arctic Sivunmun 我ḷisaġ维克大学 merged with the Mayor’s 劳动力 Development Program in 1993, adding facilities and resources to support the growing number of vocational education opportunities available at the college. In 1995, the North Slope Borough established by ordinance the 我ḷisaġ维克大学 Corporation, 一个独立的, 公共, non-profit corporation with full power for the governance of the college vested in the 校董会.

我ḷisaġ维克 achieved accreditation from the Northwest Commission on 大学s and Universities in 2003 and is authorized by the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary 教育 to operate in the state of Alaska. In 2006, it also became the first and only federally recognized tribal college in Alaska.
