Strategic Plan

The College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) offers coursework in the liberal arts and select professions that are central to the university’s statewide mission. Through this study, students gain a better sense of their place — physically, socially, ethically, and aesthetically — within their region and the world. Download Strategic Plan

Toward the fulfillment of our mission, we focus on three general goals:

  • providing educational excellence;
  • promoting research and creative activity both within and across disciplines;
  • maintaining strategic relevance through our contribution to general education and our involvement in outreach activities.

Goal 1: Teaching and Learning

Engage students in a transformational experience of discovery, understanding and global citizenship.

Goal 2: Scholarly and Creative Activity

Achieve excellence in scholarship and creative activity through a college culture that recognizes that teaching, outreach, research and creative activities are inextricably intertwined.

Goal 3: Outreach and Engagement

Work both through college-based strategies and with University of Idaho Extension offices to extend the expertise housed in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences to the public, private and nonprofit sectors in counties across the state.

Goal 4. Organization, Culture and Climate

Create and sustain an energized community that is adaptable, dynamic and vital to enable the university to advance strategically and function efficiently.
