The Comprehensive Campaign Working Group is made up of dedicated alumni volunteers and university leaders. This working group has been charged by President Scott Green to position the University of Idaho community to embrace the big ideas behind the capital campaign. The resulting white paper will inform the road map for the capital campaign as we head into the first public phase in the fall of 2021. The white paper will also support development of a university-wide vision for the comprehensive fundraising campaign and identify the resources needed to ensure the campaign’s success.
Over a series of meetings, the working group will discuss the future for the University of Idaho and pinpoint areas where the university is poised to lead the state and the nation. We will also discuss how to build strong internal support for the campaign and its goals.
The working group’s recommendations will be presented in a white paper for university leaders. Those recommendations, along with other inputs, will shape the public phase of the campaign and identify areas where there will be strong support from external stakeholders for private investment.
