For more than 100 years, Idaho State University has been an integral part of the Pocatello and Chubbuck communities. Annually, ISU serves more than 18,600 students at campuses in Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls and Meridian. The University has an incredible cultural and economic impact, from being Bannock County’s largest employer, to our performing arts and athletic events, to our intellectual forums.
As a Carnegie research high university – a prestigious distinction held by less than 100 institutions in the country – ISU is not only educating future generations, we are creating new knowledge that will define the future.
We offer more than 250 academic programs, with a focus on our health care mission. Our students are tomorrow’s business leaders, educators, engineers, researchers and health professionals. And they aren’t just learning in the classroom.
Our growing Career Path Internship (CPI) program enables them to learn from current leaders in our community. The program, which now serves more than 750 students annually, gives students paid, hands-on learning experiences working directly with community and business leaders, as well as within the University.
Our health care clinics offer hands-on learning experiences through the services we provide to our communities. Last year, ISU’s 15 teaching clinics provided more than 47,000 patient visits.
The Pocatello campus is home to the $34 million state-of-the-art Stephens Performing Arts Center, which was ranked No. 4 on a national list of “The 25 Most Amazing University Performing Arts Centers,” and the Idaho Museum of Natural History, which was featured in National Geographic Magazine in 2014.
Idaho State University is proud to be a part of the Pocatello and Chubbuck communities. In all we do, our Bengals are committed to excellence. ISU is, and should be, a major pride point for all of us.
