The Office of Community Partnerships supports Idaho communities through research and student projects focused on local priorities. We provide a front door for Idaho communities to access university resources, including UI Extension, and faculty throughout the university. Our projects aim to advance innovation and sustainability, build leadership, and create vibrant communities.
We can help your community or organization by:
- Connecting you with UI Extension and other faculty
- Developing service-learning, internship, and student volunteer projects
- Gathering and analyzing information on local trends and characteristics
- Partnering on grant proposals
Our office in Boise provides a link to state agencies, industry associations, and the university’s southern and eastern Idaho regional centers. Our Moscow office links to faculty, students and staff on our main campus, as well as to our northern Idaho regional center.
