The University of Idaho will be guided through 2025 by the strategic plan crafted during the 2015-16 school year and approved by the Idaho State Board of Education in June 2016. This working document will evolve as our needs change, our goals are met and our strategic initiatives develop. It is an exciting outline of where we are going and a purposeful look at what it means to be the University of Idaho.
Research universities prepare their students not just with today's knowledge, but with the ability to discover new knowledge, solve novel problems, lead and thereby construct the future. The University of Idaho (UI) is Idaho's major public research university, serving a land-grant mission in support of Idaho's economy and society by educating students at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels to meet the needs of Idaho and our region; by conducting research, scholarship and creative activity of impact and purpose (basic and applied); and by engaging statewide to improve the lives of Idahoans.
UI will serve any qualified student, with a focus on giving all qualified Idaho students access to education at a research university. Our students will be a cross-section of Idaho in ethnic, socioeconomic and demographic terms. Education at the University of Idaho is dedicated not simply to the transmission of knowledge but also to preparing students to become problem solvers and lifelong learners.
The university will also be a purpose-driven organization, a vibrant intellectual community that attracts, retains and develops great faculty and staff. We will achieve this by using our existing resources effectively, generating additional resources and improving our physical and professional environment.
