University of Idaho

Since 1889, the University of Idaho has been a place that expects more from itself, more from its students, more from knowledge and more from life. We offer a distinctive combination of outstanding majors and graduate programs, accomplished faculty, world-class facilities, renowned research and a residential campus in a spectacular natural setting. It`s no wonder we`re ranked among the top national universities in the country (U.S. News & World Report). We`re also one of the best values in higher education (The Princeton Review). There`s no better way to learn, think and live than at the University of Idaho. Expect more from a leading university. We`ll deliver.

The University of Idaho is a high research activity, land-grant institution committed to undergraduate and graduate research education with extension services responsive to Idaho and the region`s business and community needs. The university is also responsible for regional medical and veterinary medical education programs in which the state of Idaho participates. The University of Idaho offers a wide range of baccalaureate, master`s, doctoral and professional programs, with primary emphasis on agriculture, natural resources, metallurgy, engineering, architecture, law, foreign languages, teacher preparation and international programs related to the foregoing, and with continuing emphasis in the areas of business, education, liberal arts, physical, life, and social sciences. The university provides lifelong learning opportunities and uses a variety of delivery methods to meet the needs of select, yet diverse, constituencies in the state and region. The institution serves students, business and industry, the professions and public sector groups throughout the state and nation, as well as diverse and special constituencies. The university also has specific responsibilities in research and extension programs related to its land-grant functions in cooperation with federal, state and county governments. The University of Idaho works in collaboration with other state postsecondary institutions in serving these constituencies.
