Universities & Colleges
- The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) is a public research university in Fairbanks, Alaska. Located just 200 miles south of the Arctic Circle, UAF is a critical partner in promoting cooperation, sustainable development, and environmental protection in the region. Dartmouth and UAF co-chair the UArctic Institute for Arctic Policy.
- The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is an international cooperative network, consisting of universities, colleges and other organizations, that promotes education and research in the North. Located above the Arctic Circle, and endorsed by the Arctic Council, it was established to empower indigenous peoples and other northerners through education, mobility and shared knowledge. Dartmouth and UAF co-chair the UArctic Institute for Arctic Policy. IAP hosts meetings of select academics, government officials, nonprofits, and indigenous leaders to discuss critical Arctic issues and publishes recommendations for action.
- Ilisimatusarfik (University of Greenland) is Greenland's only university, located in the capital of Nuuk. The Dartmouth-Greenland Student Exchange brings one or two students from Greenland to Dartmouth for a term each year, and Dartmouth sends one student each year to Ilisimatusarfik for a term. The program is an important bridge for Greenlandic students to work within their government, education, and nonprofits, and has been an essential educational experience for Dartmouth students doing research in Greenland. We look forward to expanding faculty and student exchanges and other collaborations between Illimartusifik and Dartmouth.
