The Native & Rural Student Center (NRSC) is located on the lower floor of the Mourant building directly across from the Student Resources desk.

The mission of the NRSC is to create a student-centered inclusive environment that honors diversity, celebrates cultural traditions and knowledge, and enhances the learning experiences of the University of Alaska Southeast students. 

Since 1996, the NRSC has provided a warm, inviting atmosphere filled with opportunities to gather with peers, receive academic support, and develop leadership skills. 

The NRSC is your home away from home!
