In the North, for the North, by the North—towards a sustainable world

UAF is a member of UArctic, a network of universities, research centers and other organizations committed to higher education and research in the North. UArctic institutions share resources, facilities and expertise with students, scientists and northern communities. Whether it’s student exchange or research collaboration, we all benefit when we share what we know.

All eight circumpolar countries are represented in UArctic: Canada, Denmark/Greenland, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. Many more institutions come from countries outside the North, but all are engaged in northern issues.
