Vision, Mission, Goals

College of Education Strategic Plan 2012-2017

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 own vision, mission and goals.

The University of Idaho College of Education seeks teaching, learning and living that transforms, invigorates and nurtures. We expand lasting knowledge centered in local and global communities.

The University of Idaho’s College of Education is the state’s 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 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.

  1. Teaching and Learning: Enable student success in a rapidly changing world.

  2. Scholarly and Creative Activity: Promote excellence in scholarship and creative activity to enhance life today and prepare us for tomorrow.

  3. Outreach and Engagement: Meet society’s critical needs by engaging in mutually beneficial partnerships.

  4. Community, Culture and Climate: Be a purposeful, ethical, vibrant and open community.
