Idaho State's Finest Hour
I hope that this week of distance-based instruction has gone as smoothly as possible. We knew there would be challenges and issues to resolve, but I am so proud of how we addressed the task to move the entirety of our instruction to distance-based delivery.

This University has known great times, and done great things, but I honestly believe this may be our finest hour. 

My video message this week provides more guidance to students, faculty, and staff during this ever-changing situation. I encourage you to watch it.
