ISU Television Program Debuts
Fall 2011 Issue
Idaho State of Mind is a 30-minute weekly public affairs program showcasing Idaho State University faculty, staff and students making a difference.
The show is a joint partnership between Idaho State University and Idaho Public Television, debuted Saturday, Sept. 10, and will air each week at 12:30 p.m. mountain standard time.
The program is hosted and anchored by Libby Howe, with student support in reporting, directing and all other aspects.
Future shows will explore the effect recent world conflicts are having on higher education as millions of veterans decide to take advantage of the G.I. Bill; an inside perspective of ISU's nationally-renowned nuclear engineering program focusing on solar power and medical isotopes; and the statewide "Go On" project, which examines the low number of high school students in Idaho that continue into higher education, as well as what high school students should do to prepare for college.
"ISU students have a tremendous opportunity to take their skills from the classroom to a whole new level of professionalism," said Thomas Hallaq, assistant professor of mass communication.
