UAA's Participation in the University of the Arctic
University of Alaska Anchorage's participation in the University of the Arctic is part of the larger International/Intercultural initiative and contributes directly to the goals of the UAA International and Intercultural Learning Outcomes.
University of the Arctic
UArctic is a cooperative network of universities, colleges, research institutes and other organizations concerned with education and research in and about the North. UArctic builds and strengthens collective resources and collaborative infrastructure that enables member institutions to better serve their constituents and their regions. Through cooperation in education, research and outreach we enhance human capacity in the North, promote viable communities and sustainable economies, and forge global partnerships.
UAA's Role in the University of the Arctic
UAA explored the idea of membership in UArctic for several years, and, in 2008, under the leadership of then Vice Provost Douglas Causey, UAA became an official member of the organization.
