UAlberta North

Promoting Research & Education

UAlberta North promotes and supports northern and circumpolar research and education across all faculties at the University of Alberta. This is done in a number of ways, for example by:

• providing seed-funding for faculty and students;

• facilitating student and faculty exchanges;

• enhancing the benefits of research to northern communities through community capacity-building and expanded opportunities for dissemination of community knowledge and experience;

• communicating research through workshops and seminars;

• fostering discovery-based learning environment through cross-faculty co-operation, building international research connections, and hosting visiting researchers and scholars.
