In Our Communities

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.

  • Lapwai Higher Education Center

    In 2008, Bridge Idaho opened the Lapwai Higher Education Center through a joint partnership between Bridge Idaho, the University of Idaho College of Education, and the Lapwai School District. Located inside Lapwai High School, the center serves as a gateway for our students and communities in accessing higher education and fulfills a serious need among our students as they complete high school and prepare for college.

    Promoting a college environment within the school, the Lapwai Higher Education Center is staffed by one full-time Bridge Idaho coordinator and is equipped with both technology and other resources in support of students’ educational aspirations. Through the services Bridge Idaho provides, the center effectively provides our low-income, first generation students with the guidance and advice they require as they prepare for and apply to college, and enables students to become connected with the University long before attending through dual enrollment courses, workshops, etc.
