Goals and Strategies

Goal 5: Trailblaze Programs and Partnerships

By partnering with industry, we can enhance and foster pathbreaking interdisciplinary programs and activities that transcend traditional fields of study and offer students new opportunities to grow, thrive and contribute to our state and our nation.


  1. Leverage existing partnerships and programs and develop new opportunities with Idaho employers and private partnerships to address workforce, research, educational and service needs.
  2. Expand partnerships across Idaho to ensure rural communities have access to high-quality educational programming that fits their needs.
  3. Create interdisciplinary structures to facilitate meaningful connections and experiences for students, faculty and staff.
