What Outer Coast is doing through COVID-19
26 March 2020
Dear Friends of Outer Coast,
COVID-19 is in our communities and on all our minds. We at Outer Coast hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy in this challenging time. We are monitoring COVID-19 developments closely and working to understand the implications for future Outer Coast programs. At this point, we have determined that it is too early to make a call on the Summer Seminar and will continue in our preparations. If there are any changes to our plans, we will share updates immediately.
We have finalized our faculty and course offerings for the Summer Seminar and have an exceptional slate:
The Economics of Rural Alaskan Water Utilities
Natural Resources and Sustainability Program
University of Alaska Fairbanks
Indigenizing Futures: Healing Within and Against the Anthropocene
Associate Professor of English and Philosophy
University of Alaska Southeast (for a second year!)
Living a Democratic Life
Associate Professor of Political Science
Bryn Mawr College
Tlingit Language and Indigenous Studies
Associate Professor of Alaska Native Languages
University of Alaska Southeast (for a third year!)
Interested in these courses? The Summer Seminar application deadline is April 1.
Know a student who would be a good fit? (100% of all admitted students’ financial need will be met.)
We wish you good health in this uncertain moment. Please reach out if you want to help, have ideas, or want to chat. We’re eager to hear from you.
