UArctic Student Ambassadors represent the UArctic network as well as their own home institutions on and off campus. As the face of UArctic’s educational activities, the Ambassadors participate in relevant UArctic events and meetings; share their own UArctic experiences to highlight the opportunities and benefits that the network has to offer; communicate online and face to face with past and present students from across UArctic's membership; and function as a liaison between the student community and UArctic's leadership.
The new Student Ambassadors will receive their training during the UArctic Congress 2016 in St Petersburg, Russia in September 2016.
