Sustaining the legacy of Senator Jim and Louise McClure is at the heart of everything we do. Senator McClure was renowned for his attention to detail, understanding of policy implications and nonpartisan approach, which coupled powerfully with Louise’s aptitude for relationship building and strategic planning. We are proud that the McClure Center reflects their values and dedication to public service.

Whether it is supporting high-quality hands-on learning experiences for students, conducting evidence-based research or engaging Idaho communities in helping address some of Idaho’s greatest challenges, this work does not happen without you! Your generosity is instrumental in making everything possible. We cannot thank you enough.

"We make the future by what we do today. University of Idaho offers a place where minds can expand, where ideas take root, and where people grow. Those of us who have enjoyed the benefits of a free and educated society have the responsibility to provide opportunities for succeeding generations."

— James A. McClure
