University Vision Statement
Updated September 2008
The University of Idaho
is an innovative public research institution, specializing in international, cross-disciplinary arenas of impact, engaged teaching, and creative outreach and engagement programs.
We are the top choice for the state’s best students
and a national leader in selected multidisciplinary programs. Our accomplished faculty, staff, and alumni are transforming the lives of our students, the communities of our state, and the state of our world. We are also transforming ourselves as a university through focused attention on building a sustainable workplace
that is personally rewarding, efficient and effective.
We will engage in active learning, multidisciplinary collaboration, and build on our strengths in areas of contemporary importance. We expect leadership – in striving for achievement, in extraordinary service to students, and in our purposeful attention to fostering trust and respect and the value of individual ideas and diverse perspectives in all that we do.
Our impact is great and growing and will be fully determined through sound and transparent decision making based on well understood strategic priorities. Our success is measured through both tangible and intangible results: the achievements of our students and alumni, the advancement of our state, and the use of our strengths to better our world.
