Kuskokwim Campus (KuC) is a branch of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) located in Bethel, Alaska.  Completely off the road system and four hundred miles west of Anchorage, Bethel is a hub community for forty-seven Yup’ik villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Village life is driven by traditional subsistence fishing, hunting and gathering combined with a modern cash economy.  By state law, there is a K-12 school in every village of at least ten students, so virtually every high school student is guaranteed education in their home village.  However, the small student numbers dictate a small teaching staff at the high school level, with the principal and one teacher sometimes covering all subject areas.  Students predictably arrive for college under-prepared academically.  Students who have taken college coursework while in high school (“dual credit”) are more likely to enroll and succeed in college. The College Readiness Coordinator will serve as the liaison between KuC and the six school districts in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Region in coordinating dual credit/tech prep offerings to high school students. This position will also collaborate with region non-profit entities and school districts to develop specific career pathways for high school students in the areas of Health, Education, Math, Yup’ik, Construction, and Tribal Management, including distance-delivered courses to village high schools.
