Bridge Idaho is heavily invested in and connected to the communities we serve. We recognize that the University of Idaho sits on the ancestral lands of the Nez Perce and, as such, we have an obligation to ensure access to and support for higher education for Tribal Members and those who live on the Nez Perce Reservation. During the academic year, most of Bridge Idaho’s staff is located within our communities providing tutoring, instruction, advising, guidance, and mentoring.
Our staff work as University liaisons within Idaho’s communities—serving on committees, meeting with parents, building relationships, living and working to bridge the University of Idaho with Idaho’s communities.
University staff working within our communities promotes relationships that support our students as well as the development of mutual understanding between the communities and the University, forging a sense of shared responsibility.
