4th FISU Rectors’ Forum: Growth through University Sport

LAUSANNE/UMEA - In June 2013, FISU, in collaboration with Umeå University and the Swedish University Sports Federation, organizes the FISU Rectors' Forum. The main theme is ‘University and Community Growth through University Sport’.

We cordially invite University Rectors, Chancellors, Vice Chancellors, Vice Presidents and other high ranking university leaders worldwide to discuss and highlight the importance of sport in the academic world and in society as a whole. We encourage delegates to invite their community collaborators to the conference, because cooperation between the academic world and its surrounding community reflects both the main theme and sub-themes.

Qualified Speakers
A number of highly qualified speakers will talk at the FISU Rectors’ Forum, within the following five sub-themes:

- Collaborative Partnerships
- Business of Sport
- University Sports Tourism
- Innovation and Growth
- Support in Career Management

Post conference activities such as elk safari, river rafting and excursion can be booked on the registration link above.
