Engaging with our community.
The APU main campus includes a variety of venues used for the celebration of the Arts and Cultures of Alaska. From large scale event halls and seminars to gallery spaces and theatre performances, APU offers community members and organizations a place to share their art, culture, talents, and passions.
Connecting the past with the future.
Rasmuson Hall at APU’s Atwood Center is a venue for public events and important Alaska Native gatherings. Also found on the National Register of Historic Places as it is the site of the Alaska Native Settlement Claims Act in 1971. Recent community-wide events include the celebration of Indigenous People’s Day, Veteran’s Day luncheon, and ceremonial potlatches.
Showcasing Alaska and Alaskan artists.
An active space for local artists, APU has two gallery spaces: the ConocoPhillips Gallery in Grant Hall and the Leah J Peterson Gallery in the Carr-Gottstein Academic Center. Showcasing new art work by Alaskans throughout the year, APU Gallery spaces also host First Friday receptions on the first Friday of the month.
“The University’s strength is determined by its graduates, its alumni, out in the community and connected to the university.” –President Robert Onders
The Alumni Association starts with you, our alumni, from across the university’s long and diverse past. The Office of Alumni Relations is hosting its #WeAreAPU campaign to connect the alumni community with the Alumni Association. Our belief is that alumni represent the very rigor and spirit of the university every day out in the community. The campaign speaks to that belief, so throughout the next year in anticipation of the (re)launch and the reintegration of the university with its alumni, APU will be hosting events that will bring our alumni back into the fold and highlight the strength that they represent to the university.
