At the University of Idaho, scholarly and creative activity aspires to generate knowledge that strengthens the scientific, economic, cultural, social, and legal foundations of an open, diverse, and democratic society. Our goal is to achieve excellence in scholarship and creative activity through an institutional culture that values and promotes strong academic areas and interdisciplinary collaboration among them.
Research is a primary function of the University of Idaho at both the graduate and the undergraduate levels. All professorial rank faculty are expected to conduct research as an end in itself and as a means to provide students with the most up-to-date information in their fields. For their part, students are expected to solve real-world problems, enabling them to make meaningful contributions to society.
In an ongoing effort to provide exposure to the importance of research to you as a graduate student, we encourage you to consider registering for the series of workshops below. This course is offered free of charge
but registration is required.
