The University of Idaho Research Park is the university’s representative to the northern Idaho economic and community development activities. The organization promotes sustainability and growth in the region through participation in area events and membership in the Post Falls Chamber of Commerce. Staff, faculty and researchers play active roles in community development through tours and demonstrations, as well as visits to area high schools to get students excited about the fields of science, engineering and technology.
The Research Park hosts University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene's degree path classes in engineering, geology, geography (Geographic Information Systems), education, nutrition, and biochemistry. Classrooms at the facility are available for use by specialty industry engineering classes designed and conducted by regional companies.
