The initial vision of the Atlantic Rim Collaboratory (ARC) is to establish a global group of educational systems that advances values of equity, excellence, wellbeing, inclusion, sustainability, democracy and human rights for all students within high-quality, professionally-run systems.
Our member representatives are: Richard Barwell (University of Ottawa), Arnór Guðmundsson (Iceland), Peter Kent (ICP), Cathy Montreuil (Nova Scotia), Gayle Gorman (Scotland) and Leandro Folgar (Uruguay).
ARC representatives are: Trista Hollweck (Project Director), Andy Hargreaves (President), Pasi Sahlberg (ARC Ambassador) and Fiona Forbes (ARC Ambassador).
All member systems support, adhere, and promote ARC’s mission statement. Member systems commit to joining ARC for a term of three (3) years, with the opportunity to renew. Member systems include three to four participants representing government (Ministers of Education and Secretaries/Deputy Ministers) and professional leaders (unions, inspectorates, etc).
