Greetings from Finland!

Greetings from Finland!


The Finland Chapter was pleased to host its inaugural event in May 2014.  One of the smaller Chapters in terms of numbers, they are proud to make up for it with their enthusiasm.  The group gathers throughout the year and is in the process of establishing stronger connections with Lakehead University students taking part in the Study Abroad program.  The Chapter acts as a resource for those adventurous students studying at, partner institution, the University of Oulu.

The Finland Chapter also takes opportunities to host Lakehead University faculty and vice presidents who have travelled to Finland on behalf of the University.

The Chapter also engages with six of the previous Chairs in Finnish Studies at Lakehead University who reside in Finland:

  • Dr. Antti Hakinen, University of Helsinki
  • Dr. Hanna Snellma, University of Helsinki
  • Dr. Annikki Kaivola-Bregenhjj, University of Turku (retired)
  • Dr. Lassi Heininen, University of Lapland
  • Dr. Tatu Leinonen, University of Oulu
  • Dr. Kari Hakapaa, University of Lapland
