Community and Economic Development
Expanding Businesses, Organizations and Communities through Our University's Resources
The University of Idaho is interested in partnering with businesses, industries, nonprofits, and communities to help them grow, thrive and expand.
The Office of Economic Development helps achieve this by connecting these external partners — large and small — with the U of I's vast range of services, resources and expertise embedded in our campuses and research facilities throughout the state. We can help you navigate the breadth and depth of our university system to find the resources you need.
Wherever you're located in Idaho, our opportunities to connect and collaborate are endless.
