We serve as a resource and advocate for our participants while progressively leading the dialogue, strategy and action concerning college access and attainment, with an emphasis on the first-generation and low-income students of Idaho.
We will address immediate and long-term college access and attainment issues for Idaho’s citizens. We will be a signaling device to our institutions regarding the importance of supporting low-income and first-generation students. We will be innovative and adaptable while building an organization that is sustainable and disciplined. We will be strategically positioned in both higher education and in our communities, acting as an effective, thoughtful and responsible partner.
We believe in the public responsibility to provide for the education of every student and adhere to the principle that opportunity, access and achievement in education should not be a consequence of economic circumstance. Our programming and services will be reflective of these values and promote
the fact that a quality education is not only invaluable to the individual, but indispensable to a democratic society and required to address the issues facing our communities.
