Pandemic Is Turning Idaho Higher Education Financials From Bad To Worse

Idaho State University held its first day of classes for the fall 2020 semester Monday. Boise State University will welcome students to campus on August 24, and the University of Idaho plans to open classroom doors August 31. 

Each school will deliver many of those classes in-person, making adjustments to class size and cleaning protocols as Idaho remains among the states with the highest rates of COVID-19.

 

But even before the pandemic shut down campuses last spring, Idaho’s four-year institutions were facing a murky financial outlook. That’s according to an analysis from our guest today, Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News.

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
