Kenai Peninsula College

Like most colleges and schools, Kenai Peninsula College made an emergency switch to entirely distance education and shut down its campuses around mid-March. The college is planning to go forward next fall with mostly distance-delivered  classes but there will be a handful of in-person classes when possible.

The college has summer classes but they’re all online, the way the spring was. By the time fall semester starts in September, some classes will be back to meeting in person — but only some, and in smaller numbers, with protective measures in place. Other typical functions, like the art galleries, will stay closed for the fall.

Kenai Conversation: Remembering Dr. Alan Boraas

Nov 7, 2019
University of Alaska

This week, we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Alan Boraas, who died Monday at the age of 72. Boraas taught at Kenai Peninsula College for 46 years, but his impact goes far beyond the campus. As an anthroplogist, he dedicated his career to preserving and promoting the native languages and cultural traditions of the Kenai Peninsula. We're joined this week with George Holley, Bill Holt and Dr. James Kari who worked with Boraas on language studies, most notably the 1991 book "A Dena'ina Legacy: K'tl'egh'i Sukdu: The Collected Writings of Peter Kalifornsky".

KPC hosts wilderness skills course

There are all kinds of reasons why we may find ourselves unexpectedly outdoors and potentially not ready for it. A wilderness survival class at KPC this weekend intends to prevent that, by explaining the basics of how to stay sheltered and warm without all the comforts of a properly planned trip.
