Growing a Statewide State of Mind

We are a Vandal Family — and like most families, we don’t all live in the same town. Beyond the main Moscow campus, U of I has centers in Boise, Coeur d’Alene and Idaho Falls, plus Extension offices in 42 of Idaho’s 44 counties. When planning an event, consider whether Vandal Family at-a-distance can attend via Zoom. The events submission form includes a place to add Zoom info. Keep in mind all U of I locations south of and including Riggins are in the Mountain Time Zone. Submit an event.

Join the Surplus Exchange Teams Group

Surplus has created a Surplus Exchange Teams group where departments, staff and faculty can offer equipment that may still have a useful life to other departments on campus. University equipment, furniture and other items can be offered to other departments before being sent to surplus. This is a way to be more sustainable in furthering the life of equipment and extend university money. This group can also be used to find campus equipment that may be going unused. If transferring tagged items, you will still need to submit the transfer through VandalWeb. Email Jeremy Mutart to join the group.

The study was led by Michelle K. “Shelley” McGuire of U of I and University of Rochester Medical Center colleague Antti E. Seppo. Read more.
