Idaho State University Campus
Idaho State University and the College of Eastern Idaho are proud to join the Idaho Commission on Hispanic Affairs to host the third annual South-Eastern Idaho Hispanic Youth Leadership Summit (HYLS). This event is geared toward students in grades 7-12, and the event is open to all students.
Students attending this event will engage in exciting interactive, hands-on, and STEM-related breakout sessions, enhance their leadership skills, and be inspired by our key-note speaker. Students will have the opportunity to attend a college fair, apply for scholarships, talk with employers in our community, and get an overall sense of how college might fit into their future plans.
Be sure to have your school or your students tag themselves on social media with the #HYLS23 and #IdahoState, #CEI to be featured on our webpage and our tagboard!
Idaho State University's Land Acknowledgment Statement
Acknowledging Native lands is an important way to honor and respect Indigenous peoples and their traditional territories. The land on which Idaho State University’s Pocatello campus sits is within the original Fort Hall Reservation boundaries and is the traditional and ancestral home of the Shoshone and Bannock peoples. We acknowledge the Fort Hall Shoshone and Bannock peoples, their elders past and present, their future generations, and all Indigenous peoples, including those upon whose land the University is located. We offer gratitude for the land itself and the original caretakers of it.
As a public research university, it is our ongoing commitment and responsibility to teach accurate histories of the regional Indigenous people and of our institutional relationship with them. It is our commitment to the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes and to ISU’s citizens that we will collaborate on future educational discourse and activities in our communities.
