For Us.

A higher return on investment.

Graduates from Idaho’s institutions of higher learning have made immeasurable contributions to our state and local communities, including more than $4 billion a year to our state’s economy. Those with post-secondary education are more likely to be employed and more likely to save our government money by relying less on government to pay for health care and other safety-net programs.

85% of jobs in 2030 don’t exist yet.*

Human talent is the most important driver of economic vitality. Idaho’s business leaders have reported that the lack of skilled workers was their #1 problem.** 60% of our 25-34-year-old workers will need to hold post-secondary credentials. It’s not realistic to think we can solve this challenge with an out-of-state workforce. We have the human resources growing in our own state and the institutions of higher learning that are ready and able to take on the challenges Idaho faces today and tomorrow.
