FEATURE STORY
Kutztown to Alaska

The Kutztown University Liaison Project gives KU students a unique teaching opportunity.​​

Kutztown University is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its relationship with an unexpected place – the Lake Peninsula School District in the state of Alaska.

Dr. Kristen Bazley, an Associate Professor in KU’s College of Education, started the Kutztown University Liaison Project in 2010. The program pairs Kutztown students in undergraduate and graduate teacher-education classes with children in an Alaskan classroom to provide instructional assistance, both online and in person. The KU students hone their teaching skills while tutoring students in remote villages across the school district in Bush, Alaska, which serves 13 isolated villages along the Alaskan Peninsula.
