Creating Cultural Knowledge Credential programs: A Collaboration between Nome Public Schools and the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Northwest Campus.


Nome Public Schools and UAF Northwest Campus have partnered to create a Cultural Knowledge Credential, focused on strengthening cultural knowledge of the Bering Strait region to increase effectiveness in the classroom and regional workforce. Credentials provide students with achievable recognition for completing just a few courses. Once complete, this group of courses will equip local teachers and workers with a better understanding and appreciation for a variety of aspects of cultural knowledge specific to the state of Alaska and the Bering Strait region.
