The Institute of Arctic Studies is a leader in polar studies. Since its founding in 1989, the Institute has focused on the environmental, cultural, and political dimensions of the North and the critical impact of climate change. The Dickey Center's commitment to the interdisciplinary study of these issues rests in the hope that this will benefit northern people, increase international understanding, and promote global environmental stewardship.

The Institute is a crossroads for interdisciplinary research, discussion, and education. We provide undergraduate and graduate students with guidance on educational and research opportunities in polar studies, and direct an interdisciplinary IGERT PhD program in polar environmental change that is preparing a new generation of scientists and engineers. Our seminars and public events with notable scholars and policymakers aim to highlight the importance of polar regions and global ecosystems in world affairs and to spark open, educated and productive discussion on these issues within our community and beyond.
