Alaska Victimization Survey noted at 8th University of the Arctic (UArctic) Rectors' Forum in Iceland

2014 Rectors' Forum attendees
Alaska Victimization Survey estimates were discussed at the 8th annual University of the Arctic (UArctic) Rectors' Forum at the University of Akureyri in Iceland earlier this year.  

Dean Bill Hogan, College of Health, attended the conference as UAA's representative. The Forum gathered together 46 rectors from UArctic higher education institution members, and invited speakers from 12 different countries.

This year's theme was "University Education in the Arctic Regions - Flexibility, Gender Equality, and Health."  Domestic violence was one of the issues on the conference agenda.

The Rectors’ Forums bring together leaders of UArctic’s Higher Education Institution members, and serve as a unique opportunity for the heads of these institutions in the circumpolar North to participate in a common dialogue and learning experience focused on topics of special relevance.
