ISU offers several levels of degrees in various departments and programs. The ISU health program is a particularly strong program that is well-known by other institutions. The University is recognized for its mission to bring health and health sciences education to the state of Idaho.
Overall, there has been an abundant amount of growth academically, especially in health-related fields. What the University does fall short in is building the smaller programs. ISU is known as a health college, but not everybody wants to be a doctor or dental hygienist. All the major health programs receive money and improvement before any other program on campus. This is not to say that the other programs cannot operate adequately. They are still excellent programs with excellent faculty, but they are not reaching their full potential.
