The Model Arctic Council (MAC) is an academic program in which students from universities throughout the circumpolar north and beyond actively participate in a collaborative, experiential learning exercise to expand their knowledge of salient challenges and concerns in the Arctic. The program is a Thematic Network of UArctic and is organized through collaboration among faculty at UArctic institutions. The vision is that a UArctic member institution in the country chairing the Arctic Council will host the MAC in even-numbered years to connect with official Arctic Council meetings and other activities. In odd-numbered years, the vision is that regional MACs will occur.
