SBOE Mission Statement - University of Idaho

The University of Idaho is the state's land-grant research university. From that distinctive origin, we will enhance the scientific, economic, social, legal, and cultural assets of our state and develop solutions for complex problems facing our society.  We will continue to deliver excellence in teaching, research, and outreach in a collaborative environment at our residential main campus in Moscow, regional centers, extension offices, and research facilities across Idaho. Consistent with the land-grant ideal, we will ensure that our outreach activities serve the state and strengthen our teaching, scholarly, and creative capacities statewide.

The University of Idaho will shape the future through innovative thinking, transformative education, and community engagement.

Our educational offerings will transform the lives of our students through engaged learning and self-reflection. 

Our teaching and learning will include undergraduate, graduate, professional, and continuing education offered through face-to-face instruction, technology-enabled delivery, and hands-on experience. 

Our educational programs will strive for excellence and will be enriched by the knowledge, collaboration, diversity, and creativity of our faculty, students and staff.
