Letter from the President

Letter from the President President Vailas Congratulations, Bengals! As many of you know, Idaho State University recently received notification from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities that our accreditation was reaffirmed.

Letter from the President

This is great news for our University as it reflects our ongoing commitment to academic excellence.

The Commission commended ISU on several key areas including campus safety, culture of student support and community outreach efforts. ISU was also applauded for its recent program prioritization process, which engaged campus constituents in "a thoughtful, comprehensive, and inclusive process". I am grateful to our entire campus community for their hard work and dedication to our University. You can view the Commission's response online.

Later this month we will celebrate our fifth annual "Celebrate Idaho State" CommUniversity event. The event draws thousands of visitors to our main campus in Pocatello to learn more about the University and its many offerings. I encourage you to join us on Tuesday, March 17 from 4 to 7pm.

Stay in touch with ISU on social media by following us on Twitter and joining us on Facebook. We strive to keep you up-to-date on all of the great things happening at ISU.

Go Bengals!
