Kolë Gjeloshaj, FISU Director for Educational Services attend the meeting as well.

The purpose of this first preparatory meeting held on site between FISU and the Organizing Committee was to establish the level of cooperation between the different partners and to work on the program, the sub-themes and the potential speakers from the FISU Family and beyond.

The main theme of this event is “University and Community Growth through University Sport”. The Rectors’ Forum is organized as one of the main international activities celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National University Sports Federation of Sweden. The city of Umea located in the north east of the country is very much turned to education as the Umea University (1965) with its 40,000 students is composing more than one third of the population of the city.
