On Our Campus

girl reading in red chairBridge Idaho’s administrative offices are located on the University of Idaho campus in the College of Education. Our positioning within our service communities and on our campus provides an essential gateway for our students and communities in accessing higher education. It is by way of this co-location that we are able to bring the University’s resources to bear for our students and communities, support the transition and success of incoming Vandals through our UI Higher Education Center, and advocate for greater inclusion of low-income, first generation students within the campus community.

From their freshman year in high school through their transition to college, Bridge Idaho students have the opportunity to visit the University of Idaho campus for events and programming. In addition to campus visits for events such as Envision Idaho, Women In Engineering Day and Vandal Friday, each year Bridge Idaho hosts our six-week residential summer programs for secondary and transitioning college students on the Moscow campus.

Bridge Idaho leads the dialogue on campus concerning access and attainment issues for Idaho’s low-income, first-generation students by presenting at UI professional development conferences, engaging in the UI Academic Advising Association (ACADA), and serving the President’s Diversity Council through the Student Recruitment & Retention Committee.

    In 2009, Bridge Idaho opened the University of Idaho Higher Education Center on the Moscow campus. Located on the first floor of the College of Education Building, this center fulfills a serious need among our students as they transition to and attend the University by providing a continuing support network and resources within a familiar, welcoming environment. The Center embodies Bridge Idaho’s unique positioning both within the University and in our communities, and as such, has become a place for students to further connect with the University and reconnect with home.

    The UI Higher Education Center is staffed by two full-time, year-round employees as well as by part-time mentors who are former Bridge Idaho participants that have gone on to be successful in college. Through peer mentorship, post-secondary success programming, and partnerships with various UI departments and TALIS, the center effectively provides our low-income, first generation students with the guidance and advice they require as they navigate through college. The center enables students to establish their place at the University and promote their transition toward greater engagement across campus through a range of opportunities for involvement, including hosting TALIS meetings and providing presentations and workshops on topics ranging from course selection to FAFSA Renewal to Eating Well on a Budget.
