We are Idaho's nationally ranked and internationally known College of Education.  We embrace the University of Idaho's vision, mission, and goals and reflect those in our vision, mission and goals. 

Our Vision

Idaho's Leader in Lifelong Learning and Healthy Lifestyles.

Our Mission

The University of Idaho’s College of Education is the state’s flagship and land-grant research college focused on the preparation of professionals for schools, the movement sciences, and workforce counselors and educators. From our commitment to develop leaders in these fields emerges our responsibility to enhance the scientific, social, economic, and cultural assets of the state and develop solutions for complex problems.

We deliver on our commitment through focused, interdisciplinary excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and engagement in a collaborative environment at our residential main campus and our regional centers. Consistent with the land-grant ideal, our outreach activities serve the state and at the same time strengthen our teaching, scholarly, and creative capacities.

Our teaching and learning include undergraduate, graduate and professional education offered through both resident instruction and extended delivery. Our scholarly and creative activities promote K-12 academic achievement, human development and wellness, global awareness, and progress in professional practice.
