Cabinet and Roundtable

In an effort to promote inclusiveness, while enhancing efficiency and focus on the key discussions and interactions needed by the various levels of leadership, three groups work to fulfill the university's mission and achieve its goals as outlined in our strategic plan: President’s Cabinet, President's Roundtable, and Provost’s Council. The first two groups are led by the president. The latter by the provost.

The President’s Cabinet is comprised primarily of the individuals who have a direct reporting line to the president. This group meets regularly to discuss and make decisions that relate to the overall mission and vision of the institution. Led by the University of Idaho President, the cabinet makes strategic decisions and plans for the future based on input from the various divisions that make up the greater university.
