The 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.
As a membership organization, UArctic is fully controlled by our member institutions. Our work serves those members and aims to increase cooperation and synergies across the network. Our network's organization and operations models are geared towards maximizing value and impact for our members, students and the region. UArctic members gain value through their participation in the organization. UArctic represents its members’ interests internationally by promoting their diverse and shared capacity to serve northern communities and interests.
UArctic’s vision is “An Empowered North – With Shared Voices,” underlining that all northerners must have a say in their own future and that of the region as a whole. Our mission to “Empower the people of the Circumpolar North by providing unique educational and research opportunities through collaboration within a powerful network of members” reinforces that aim.
