Since 1889, the University of Idaho has provided motivated students with a transformative higher education experience that prepares them to solve real-world problems and achieve success in their lives and careers. Beginning with their beautiful residential campus in Moscow, the university’s reach extends throughout Idaho, serving over 11,000 students with educational centres in Coeur d’Alene, Boise and Idaho Falls, a research and extension centre in Twin Falls, plus Extension offices in 42 counties. One of only 72 land-grant universities nationwide, UI is a noted national leader in student-centred learning and interdisciplinary research that promotes public service. Their work serves businesses and communities, advancing the pursuit of diversity, citizenship and global outreach. They will be a leader among land-grant and flagship institutions in the 21st century by promoting an entrepreneurial spirit, embracing the contributions of multiple cultures, identities, and perspectives, and bringing together the talents and enthusiasm of faculty, staff, and students.

UI offers over 25 million in scholarships annually — more than any other Idaho public institution. The University of Idaho shapes the future through innovative thinking, community engagement and transformative education. The University of Idaho is the state’s land-grant research university. From this distinctive origin and identity comes their commitment to enhance the scientific, economic, social, legal and cultural assets of their state and to develop solutions for complex problems facing their society. They deliver focused excellence in teaching, research, outreach and engagement in a collaborative environment at their residential main campus in Moscow, regional centers, extension offices and research facilities across Idaho. Consistent with the land-grant ideal, their outreach activities serve the state as well as strengthen their teaching, scholarly and creative capacities state wide.
Their educational offerings seek to transform the lives of their students through engaged learning and self-reflection. Their teaching and learning includes undergraduate, graduate, professional and continuing education offered through face-to-face instruction, technology-enabled delivery and hands-on experience. Their educational programs continually strive for excellence and are enriched by the knowledge, collaboration, diversity and creativity of their faculty, students and staff. The University of Idaho is surrounded by the rolling Palouse hills, an area so beautiful it was featured in National Geographic magazine. Just minutes away from the forests, rivers and lakes of northern Idaho, Moscow is home to more than 24,000 residents and a wide range of student-minded businesses, such as you would only find in a university town. In fact, Men’s Journal named this “hip little city” one of the nation’s five best places to live among college towns. Art galleries, movie theaters, coffee shops and restaurants line the streets. In addition to popular drive-thrus, Moscow offers a huge co-op with organic and natural foods, Northwest-style pubs, as well as locally owned Italian, French, Mexican and Chinese eateries.
