Student Association


ASA logo


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.

International Arctic Change 2017 Conference

During the International Arctic Change 2017 Conference in Québec city, over 700 graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and researchers attended Student Day on ‘International Cooperation and Collaboration in Arctic Research’.

To learn more about the activities held during Student Day, we invite you to view pages 5-8 of the conference program and this recap video.

We would appreciate your feedback on this day via a very short survey (5 questions which shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes) so we can offer you the best possible experience at the 14th ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting in December 2018.
