"The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a cooperative network of universities, colleges, and other organizations committed to higher education and research1 in the North. Our members share resources, facilities, and expertise to provide post-secondary education relevant and accessible to students and communities of the North. UArctic works in partnership with indigenous peoples, recognizing their integral role in northern education, training, knowledge generation and transfer, and seeks to engage their perspectives and participation in all of its activities. Our overall goal is to create a strong, sustainable circumpolar region by empowering northerners and indigenous peoples through education, training and shared knowledge. UArctic seeks to promote excellence in knowledge generation and knowledge application in areas relevant to the North. UArctic education is circumpolar, holistic, and diverse in nature, and draws on our combined members’ strengths to address the unique challenges of the region. UArctic promotes cooperation in a context in which recognized degrees are granted by the members themselves."
