UpLinkCSI Launches New CTE Dual Credit Program Called UpLink: Career Academy
CSI is opening a new CTE dual credit program this fall called UpLink: Career Academy. Eligible seniors from surrounding high schools can come to campus for roughly half the school day and participate in one of fourteen programs. Most programs allow for student to receive a basic technical certificate by the end of the year. Cost and schedule vary by program and an application is required. Fast Forward funds can be used to help pay for tuition.
We ran a pilot of this program last year with four programs available. We had 8 students participate in welding, autobody or drafting. We are hoping to continue to expand the program and are working with local counselors to let students know about this opportunity which is unique in the state at this scale. This fall, available programs include:
Administrative assistant
automation engineering
business management
collision repair
doigital media
drafting technology
food processing
hospitality management

ExchangeStudentSummer Hosting Opportunity with the YEAR Program

Welcome the world to your home this summer!
Host a student - change a life!
The Year of Exchange in America for Russians (YEAR) Program is now accepting applications from families across the U.S. to host a student from Russia in their home for one month this summer. Don't miss this opportunity to create new memories and friendships!
What is the YEAR Program?

YEAR Program
The YEAR Program awards scholarships to outstanding Russian students to spend one year studying at universities and community colleges across the United States.
American host families welcome YEAR students to the U.S. by inviting them into their homes for approximately one month prior to the start of the fall semester. Host families play a critical role in shaping these international students' understanding of the U.S. and American culture while demonstrating that kindness and generosity extend across borders and languages.
During the homestay, host families help YEAR students feel at home in their new community by immersing them in family and community activities. In return, host families receive a rewarding and memorable experience as well a new family member. Students come eager to share their Russian culture which contributes to a cultural exchange throughout the homestay. After the homestay, YEAR students move into their host institutions' dormitories to begin the academic year, but their relationships continue to develop throughout the year and often last a lifetime.
Interested in learning more? Write to us at year@americancouncils.org.
Lasting Friendships
"Meeting my host family was scary... I wanted to become a part of their family and create a strong bond that will not break after I return to Russia. And they gave me more that I could ever imagine. My host family and me are really the best match! They did really become my family here, they are my everything, my friends, my support... I am really sure that they have become part of my life forever!"
-YEAR Student
Becoming True Family
"When it was the time to go to my host family I was not nervous at all, because we had communicated with each other for some time and I could already say that they were amazing people and we would get on well. And it was true. I was very lucky to live with this family, because they are the best. I don't know how it is possible, but the YEAR team made a perfect match, so I felt at home from the very beginning."

Collectif9Arts on Tour Presents "Collectif9"

Tickets are available for the final performance of the Arts on Tour season, Collectif9, which will take place in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium on Monday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for students high school & under and are available at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288.

Montreal's cutting-edge classical string ensemble Collectif9 has been gathering steam since its 2011 debut, attracting diverse audiences in varied spaces. Known for energized, innovative arrangements of classical repertoire, Collectif9 employs lights, staging, and amplification more commonly seen at rock acts and heralds a new age in genre-bending classical performance. The ensemble combines the power of an orchestra with the crispness of a chamber ensemble for a unique experience. The musicians and friends met as students at Université de Montréal and McGill University: they wanted to create something different yet complementary to traditional representations of classical music, more relatable to pop culture. Learning from the classical works that have influenced non-classical musicians and the structure of pop concerts, Collectif9 looks for ways to break the stigma of inapproachability, searches for new ways of expression within the classical medium, and attempts to foster communication and collaboration between artists and within their community.

The Arts on Tour series concludes on April 1 with Collectif9.

StageDoorCSI Stage Door Series Presents "The Second Coming of Joan of Arc"

The CSI Stage Door Series will present "The Second Coming of Joan of Arc" at 7:30 p.m. on April 18 the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students. Tickets will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu.

She led an army to victory, crowned a king, took on the entire Catholic Church...and was dead by 19. Joan of Arc is the MOST documented figure of the 15th century, and yet myths about her pervade the history books, to this day. In The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, by Carolyn Gage, the audience will discover the real Jeanne Romee, and through her story, the brutal institutional misogyny that women continue to face. Drawn from the detailed records of her two trials-johnincluding hundreds of testimonies by all involved in her short life-The Second Coming finally tells the truth about the simple- minded, virginal peasant girl, who was anything but.

Jennifer Miller performs this one-woman show that explores not only the experience of "Joan of Arc," but relates that experience to contemporary women. Join her and discover the defiant, irreverent, clever, and unrepentant Jeanne, who remained unfailingly true to her own visions.
The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed, the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved.

ArenaProjectIdaho State Board of Education Grants Conditional Approval of University of Idaho Arena Project

For Immediate Release
March 14, 2019

Contact: Mike Keckler
208-332-1591 (office)
208-866-5734 (cell)

The Idaho State Board of Education today authorized the University of Idaho to proceed with plans to construct a new 4,200 seat basketball arena on the Moscow campus.
The authorization also states that the project be "contingent on approval of the project by the (Board) executive director in consultation with the new president of the University of Idaho once named by the Board."

"We think the new arena is a great project," Board President Dr. Linda Clark said. "We also think it is important that the new president, has an opportunity to review the project and provide input."

The Idaho Central Credit Union Arena is expected to cost $46 million. The Board granted permission to issue bonds or use $29 million of University of Idaho reserve funds to cover initial construction costs. Under that plan, the money will be paid back to the reserve fund through gifts, pledges, and increased student facility fees.

In April, UI will request the Board approve the student facility fee increase which would double the fee from $30 to $60 per year, raising approximately $17.5 million over 35 years.
The Board authorized naming the arena last year when Idaho Central Credit Union donated $10 million to the project.

UI can move forward with all necessary consulting and vendor contracts to implement the project proceed with the bidding and construction of the arena.

The Board today also conducted executive session interviews with four UI president finalists and intends to name new presidents both at the University of Idaho and at Boise State University by April.

Fire Help Archie & Felicia's After Devastating House Fire

On March 13, 2019, our sister, her fiancé and their two children were displaced from the home they were renting due to irreparable fire damage. Fortunately, the family suffered no injuries, but they have lost almost all of their possessions, and a beloved family pet. It would be hard to put a price tag on the loss endured by this wonderful family. It is our hope with setting a modest fundraising goal that family, friends, the community, and good Samaritans at large will have the opportunity to support good people in their time of need.
