Finding and retaining Alaska-trained teachers is a continuous challenge in Alaska where 70 percent of teachers come from elsewhere. Cultural differences and infrastructure can be challenging to new-to-Alaska teachers, especially in rural areas where turnover is high.

The University of Alaska identified key initiatives to support teachers, including:

• cultural immersion programs.

• mentoring and community partnerships.

• recruiting Alaska Native educators.

• developing youth programs.

• providing teaching scholarships.

• promoting the UA Scholars Program.

The July launch of the College of Education at the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau also aims to attract and retain Alaskans for years to come.
