Welcome Bengals!

About Us

We provide leadership and support for minority student-athletes and work to find pathways for you to engage in campus and community activities that we hope will enrich your experience and the community members who support you.  We: 

  • Identify campus and community role-models to help minority student-athletes adjust to life in Pocatello and the surrounding areas.
  • Address issues related to minority student-athletes’ cultural needs.
  • Educate incoming minority student-athletes about campus and community resources.
  • Seek out and provide information about campus and community cultural activities
  • Consult and train on diversity issues for staff and students when requested.

Our purpose is to be a resource for student-athletes, the university and surrounding community by promoting diversity and equality for new and existing student-athletes as they adjust to ISU and the surrounding communities. We hope that you will check back frequently to keep up to date with the information provided.

Go Bengals!
