Bridge 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.
