University of Idaho Benefits Advisory Group


The Benefits Advisory Group is a 27-member group comprised of faculty, staff and retirees who represent constituent employee and retiree groups. This group works year-round and closely with university administrators and executives.

Group members advise and make recommendations to the senior leadership as to what actions — if any — need to be considered or undertaken to ensure the plan meets the needs of the workforce, remains solvent, is affordable and performs.

The Benefits Advisory Group is always seeking additional members. If you are interested in joining, please contact Brandi Terwilliger, HR director, at 208-885-3008.
