The faculty, staff, and students of the International Arctic Research Center are pleased to welcome you to Fairbanks.

Our work relies on partnerships: IARC maintains strong collaborative ties with researchers throughout the United States, as well as with over a dozen countries. Collaboration also happens here on campus, as we all work together in many capacities to support those facing rapid Arctic change.
