The university is a member of the Eco League, a group of five small universities and colleges with strong programs in Psychology and Environmental Studies as well as related topics.
Alaska Methodist University was conceived by the Alaska Mission of the Methodist Church and came into being after a heroic fundraising effort in Anchorage produced $723,000. It opened its first classes in 1960, graduated three transfer students its first year, and was fully accredited in 1964 at the first opportunity. Methodist support was reduced over the years according to plan, though church aid remained important. Like other Methodist institutions, the University never was a religious school as such with compulsory chapel or required religious courses.Restructured and renamed in 1978, non-denominational Alaska Pacific University today retains its commitment to Alaska Native education and fosters development of spiritual and moral values for all students, faculty and staff consistent with APU’s Judeo-Christian heritage.
The Alaska Pacific University is a Private university located in Anchorage.
