Norway - University of Oslo
(GVSU Partnership program)
The University of Oslo is Norway’s largest and oldest institution of higher education. The building up of the Norwegian state and the very nation-building that took place in the years immediately after the establishment of the University in 1811 were largely driven by groups associated with the Royal Frederik University, as the University of Oslo was originally called. Since then for 200 years, the University of Oslo has trained and forged ties with very many people who have had a major historical impact on developments in Norway. Their legacy permeates modern Norwegian society. The University has also been pivotal in a number of political battles, not least the resistance during the Second World War and the women's liberation movement.
