MOSCOW — Officials at the University of Idaho are going public with a $225 million capital campaign aimed at bringing in money for scholarships, new faculty and upgrades to laboratory and classroom spaces.

The fundraising campaign is the largest in the school’s history and has so far been in a quiet phase, bringing in more than $161 million since 2007. The university will kick off the public phase of the campaign Friday in Moscow.

The campaign, Inspiring Futures: Invest in the University of Idaho, aims to bring in $62 million for facility improvements, $63 million to attract new faculty, $54 million for scholarship programs and $46 million to foster partnerships with industries and business.

The campaign ends in 2014.
