University of the Arctic
UAF is a founding member of the University of the Arctic, a cooperative network of universities, colleges and other organizations committed to higher education and research in the North. The consortium's overall goal is to create a strong, sustainable circumpolar region by empowering northerners and northern communities through education and shared knowledge. As part of this network, UAF participates in research and teaching partnerships and is an active member of the UArctic mobility program north2north, which provides opportunities for students from UArctic member institutions to experience different northern regions firsthand, and to share experiences face-to-face by allowing students to study at other UArctic institutions.
