The College of Business and Public Policy has announced 2023 summer academies from May 31-June 8, with options for middle school and high school students. All sessions are free, and run from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., with lunch included. Students will experience college life, with sessions located at Rasmuson Hall on UAA’s campus.

“We hope to build awareness for career paths in business. These are often more engaging than students envision,” said Dr. Terry Nelson, associate dean of the college and professor of leadership and business administration .”We have designed free academies on different topics that will be interactive and give students a range of experiences.”

Space is limited for each academy, with a deadline of May 12 to apply.

Summer academies are generously supported by Northrim Bank.
