President’s Message

Pearl Kiyawn Nageak Brewer - Interim PresidentWelcome to the Iḷisaġvik College website. We are the only federally recognized Tribal College in Alaska and are proud to serve a population that encompasses our entire state, but specifically assists those Inupiat living within the 88,000 square mile boundary of the North Slope Borough and others in rural Alaska.

Iḷisaġvik College was created, and is now supported by the governments, businesses and people of the North Slope because they understand how critical education and training are to our future. Together we are creating a truly self-sustainable economy, without losing ties to our culture, language, values and traditions.

In order to bring educational opportunities to even the most remote villages in Alaska, we are leaders in the field of distance education. Our goal is to remove all possible barriers to our students’ efforts in achieving a college education.

As Iḷisaġvik’s President, it is my job to ensure that everyone who comes to our college has the support, assistance and tools needed to succeed. I firmly believe our success as an institution is completely grounded in the success of our students.

Please explore our website and get to know us.  We like to say here on campus—more education, more opportunities, more out of life.  We truly believe this and hope you do too!

If you have any questions, or would like more information about us and what we do here, please contact us.

Quyanaqpak, Thank-You.

Pearl Kiyawn Nageak Brower
President
