Student Association

General Information

The mission of the ArcticNet Student Association (ASA) is to broaden the ArcticNet student experience by promoting student learning, leadership, research and networking opportunities between students, academics, governmental partners, and northerners. ASA members include all undergraduate and graduate students as well as post-doctoral fellows working in collaboration or under the supervision of researchers affiliated with ArcticNet. Students and fellows not directly affiliated with ArcticNet are welcome to participate in the ASA as non-voting members.

The main objectives of the ASA are as follows:

  • To encourage and initiate collaboration between students, and with other ArcticNet members;
  • To foster interaction between ArcticNet students and Northerners to improve cross-cultural understanding;
  • To give students a value-added education in their specific discipline, and to support multidisciplinary training;
  • To promote excellence and fortify the aspiration of students in Canadian Arctic research.
