From the President

A college education in the 21st century must do far more than prepare for productive employment. It must prepare students for change; a 21st century education must be an education for life.

The College of Idaho's broad and demanding PEAK curriculum prepares our students to adapt in a changing world. Our first-rate faculty (which includes four recipients of the Carnegie Foundation Idaho Professor of the Year award since 2006) teaches to the same high standard that has produced sevenRhodes Scholars and three Marshall Scholars in our history. This combination is as powerful as you will find in any small college, anywhere.

Young people, and their families, invest tremendous time, energy and money into college. They have every right to expect an education that will prepare for more than a single career, for more than the next five years. They should expect an education that will enable them to understand, analyze and develop solutions to the challenges – both at present and in the future – facing us in Idaho, as a nation and as a global community.

At The College of Idaho, this exceptional education is strengthened further by our community, in which each student is empowered to cultivate his or her talents and passions and supported by fellow students, faculty, staff and alumni.

I invite you to learn more about The College of Idaho, visit our campus, and discover how we prepare students to thrive.


Marvin Henberg, President
