Previous Rectors' Forum meetings
The UArctic Rectors’ Forum is convened once every 1-2 years for the heads of UArctic higher education institution members. The forum is a unique opportunity for leaders to participate in a common dialogue and learning experience focused on the topics of special relevancy to their institutions.
The decision about the next meeting is based on invitations from UArctic members and agreements to partner with other relevant Arctic organizations. The UArctic International Secretariat serves as the Secretariat for the Forum, coordinating the agenda planning maintaining and records of the proceedings. The host institution of each Forum is responsible for the local organization of the meeting.
