  • ACEP’s Future Home: UAF Fund Raising Initiative

In 2013, UAF broke ground on the Engineering Learning and Innovation Facility (ELIF) in order to accommodate a steep growth in the number of engineering students. It is envisioned that when the building is completed, ACEP will move into the top floor as a permanent home for our staff and faculty. The floor is now being designed specifically to accommodate the interactive, multidiscipline, and collaborative research that is ACEP’s hallmark.

To complete this floor — something not included in the original building space plan — UAF has launched a fund raising initiative seeking $6.5M in private sector contributions to complement the funding for the building from the State of Alaska.

To learn more about this initiative, please call (907) 474-2619 to speak with Emily Drygas.
