FISU Rectors’ Forum

Sweden, June 11-14 2013

The principle aim of the FISU Rectors’ Forum is to offer University Rectors, Presidents, Vice-Chancellors, Vice-Presidents and other high ranking university leaders from the five continents the opportunity to come together in a sharing atmosphere to discuss and highlight the importance of sport in the academic world and in society as a whole.

 

The International University Sports Federation (FISU) will in collaboration with Umeå University and the Swedish University Sports Federation organise the next FISU Rectors’ Forum on 11-14 June 2013 in Umeå, Sweden. The general topic will be:
University and community growth through university sport and our attention will be focused on university sport, but using the five following sub-topics as a framework for developing progressive debate and exchanging ideas:

– Collaborative partnerships
– Business of sport
– University sports tourism
– Innovation and growth
– Partnership support of career management

The programme includes a number of highly qualified speakers, as well as unique opportunities to experience the Scandinavian culture and the midnight sun. Please visit www.rectorsforum2013.com for more information.

We invite University Rectors, Presidents, Vice-Chancellors and Vice-Presidents worldwide to take part in this intellectual adventure in Sweden! We would therefore be very grateful if you could help us to spread this information and invitation via your networks.
