University of the Arctic (UArctic) and CU by Donna Anger, Director of International Programs for the University of Alaska, Fairbanks

The University of Colorado (all 4 campuses) is a member of the University of the Arctic (UArctic), a powerful international organization created by The Arctic Council.  Despite its name, it is not one university but a consortium of 200+ universities, colleges, and research institutes.  Its mission is to “Empower the people of the Circumpolar North by providing unique educational and research opportunities through collaboration within a powerful network of members.”

Donna Anger of the University of Alaska Fairbanks will present on: how researchers can benefit from UArctic’s thematic networks, student exchange program, online learning and advertising Arctic-related courses to thousands of students in the Arctic.  She will also discuss how to benefit from the UArctic network and the status on Arctic Research – What is researched globally and what is not studied.
