Alaska is a place where multiple stakeholders — corporate, governmental, native and non-native — struggle to balance the consumption of natural resources with long-term sustainability. This summer, Brown University, in affiliation with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council and Kenai Peninsula College, travels to south-central Alaska to introduce students to the beauty and complexities of present-day Alaska.

Over the course of two weeks, we will explore issues Alaskans face in balancing cultural and environmental preservation with economic growth. Learning will be fast-paced, experiential, and include widely diverse perspectives.
