Most of the Arctic, like most of the world, is commonly owned. With ownership comes the obligation to manage our resources for the benefit of the total. To do that, we must understand the reality, the richness, and the responsibility of the North.

– Governor Walter J. Hickel, Founder

Institute Announces New Website

The Institute of the North has just moved into its new website, featuring upgraded functionality and accessibility for so many of our programs.

New features include:

  • A calendar with upcoming Institute events, including Constitutional Conversations, the Emerging Leaders Dialogue, 2011 International Beringia Days Conference, and the Alaska Dialogue;
  • A shared calendar for all young professional and emerging leaders' groups to add content to - a one stop shop for engaging as a young Alaskan;
  • A revamped registration form for events with easier to use payment options;
  • Subscription to our Arctic Telegraph and Lead:North e-newsletters and
  • More content, including photos, video and links to resources.

Bear with us as we complete this transition and feel free to offer your comments. We're glad to help if you can't find something you've come to expect.
