  • ACEP Builds Alaska’s Utility Workforce — in a Nutshell

In our sixth feature of the Research in a Nutshell series, ACEP’s Heike Merkel and Patty Eagan invite us to learn how Alaska college students have an incredible opportunity to gain real-world experience working for an Alaska utility.

In this series, we present our researchers’ important work in understandable language from real human beings. No jargon. No technical data. Just the research highlights — in a nutshell.

We will continue to add more of these one-minute videos, edited by ACEP’s chief storyteller Amanda Byrd, to the collection. So keep visiting, and find out what we are doing at ACEP!


Patty Eagan explains how Alaska college students gain valuable experience working for an Alaska community through the ACEP Utility Student Internship.
