10/19 Wear Pink to Work for Breast Cancer Awareness Day

This October, the  CSI Wellbeing Program is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women after skin cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.  The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it's found and treated early. If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them. If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.   Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms and point you in the direction of a women's imaging center for the screening.
10/24 Wear Orange to Unite Against Bullying
Together against bullying. UNITED for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. 
Make it    ORANGE    and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to showing that you believe that all youth should be safe from bullying? Come together in one giant  ORANGE  message of hope and support, WEAR AND SHARE    ORANGE    to color our nation, and even the world, visibly showing that our society believes that no child should ever experience bullying.  Read the history on Wikipedia   , Unity Day sponsored by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center.

There are tickets available for the third performance of the Arts on Tour season "EmiSunshine", which will take place in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium on Tuesday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 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.

The exceptional talents of critically-acclaimed teen music prodigy, EmiSunshine has captured the nation's attention. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has been hailed by outlets such as No Depression, Billboard and Rolling Stone: "Sounds like the spunky, intense little sister to artists Iris DeMent, Natalie Maines, Nanci Griffith and Janis Joplin."

EmiSunshine has already graced some of the most-prestigious stages-from the "Today Show," to the Grand Ole Opry (over a dozen times) and most recently, "Little Big Shots starring Steve Harvey" last April. Additionally, EmiSunshine stars in and performs three songs in her latest film appearance on "The King," alongside such celebrities as Roseanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Alec Baldwin and more. The film featured at this year's Sundance Film Festival and premiered at Cannes Film Festival, where Emi performed.

A well-crafted storyteller, Emi's music has been described as an "old-timey," unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, Bluegrass, Gospel, and Country, with a sprinkle of Blues.
Follow-up performances of the Arts on Tour season include Under the Streetlamp: Hip for the Holidays (November 29), John McEuen & Friends: Will the Circle be Unbroken (February 1), International Guitar Night (February 13), and Collectif9 (April 1).

88 Idaho high schools will participate in College Application Week 2018 scheduled during the week of October 22-26.

Participating schools will host events to help high school seniors complete and submit college applications and explore postsecondary options. Most of the events are geared toward seniors who may otherwise not apply to college. Participating schools are encouraged to include activities for younger high school students to help generate interest in higher education.

Of the 88 College Application Week schools, 14 are participating for the first time this year. Click here to view a list of the participating schools.

Launched in North Carolina in 2005, College Application Week has grown into a national effort and is sponsored by the America Council on Education.

Idaho staged its first College Application Week in 2013 involving 21 schools. Last year, 81 schools participated and 10,503 students completed 15,412 college applications.

"The program has grown pretty steadily and we are excited to have more first-time schools participating this year," said Dana Kelly, student affairs program manager for the Idaho State Board of Education. "These events will take place during the school day with help from college admissions personnel and we'll have the State Board's Apply Idaho website available to simplify the application process."

The goal of College Application Week is to provide every high school senior the opportunity to apply to at least one college or university.

208-332-1591 (office)
208-866-5734 (cell)


Idaho is joining an initiative designed to keep first-year college students in school by improving success rates during the freshman year.

The effort, called the Momentum Pathways Project, was developed by the Complete College America Alliance (CCA), a network of states and higher education institutions working to create evidence-based "Game Changer" strategies to help first-year college students stay on track to degree completion.

The Momentum Pathways model uses data to identify problems and restructure delivery systems to improve student confidence through such meaningful approaches as helping them earn more credits earlier in their college career.

"The State Board of Education is excited to take part in this year's Momentum Pathways cohort," State Board President Dr. Linda Clark said. "Though Idaho's colleges and universities have made good progress toward the implementation of CCA Game Changers in recent years, the Momentum Pathways initiative will help us complete the scaling of these initiatives across all institutions. This initiative will also help our institutions reach the Board's student achievement goals and advance Governor Otter's Higher Education Task Force recommendations adopted in 2017. As opportunities and challenges alike are to be anticipated, our state's four-year institutions and community colleges stand ready to embark on this work in order to transform the educational experience of all Idahoans."
The Momentum Pathways Project creates a three-year implementation timeline and includes structured implementation support from CCA staff and content experts.

Presidents and provosts from each of Idaho's public institutions, along with the Board's executive officers, will meet in Boise later this month to develop an operational framework for accomplishing statewide student success goals. CCA will be investing approximately a half-million dollars in technical support and services to develop system-wide strategies and scale implementation across Idaho colleges and universities.

"Idaho is thrilled and honored to be named a Momentum Pathways state because now is the time, due to the leadership of the State Board of Education, to scale CCA's Game Changer strategies statewide," Idaho State University Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. Laura Woodworth-Ney said. "As a small state with a collaborative spirit, we have an enormous opportunity to leverage CCA's unparalleled expertise to transform Idaho's current completion rates. It is a privilege to work with CCA to make a difference for Idaho's students and communities."

Idaho is joining four other states and one institutional system that have committed their collective efforts to implement Momentum Pathways. They are Colorado, Montana, Hawaii, West Virginia and the City University of New York.

FreedomWalkMagic Valley Freedom Walk - Oct. 20


The Magic Valley Walk for Freedom will start at 10 a.m. from the CSI Expo Center on Saturday, October 20, 2018, and it will end at 1 p.m.  

On October 20, 2018, tens of thousands of people will gather all over the world for a fundraising and  awareness event called #WalkForFreedom. Walks will take place in hundreds of cities across dozens  of nations.

This event is operated by a global anti-human trafficking organization, A21. The purpose of the walk  is to raise awareness about the millions of men, women, and children who are still trapped in slavery  today. By fundraising and rallying thousands of people around the cause, the belief is that this event  will be the catalyst for the rescue and restoration of human beings who are being exploited.

Walk For Freedom is distinctly recognized by its participants who will be wearing black shirts and  walking in single-file lines all over the world-in local towns, through busy intersections in city  centers, on dirt tracks in crowded villages, along bridges, tunnels, and water banks. Hundreds of  local walks will be seen marching for a global end to modern-day slavery.

"We are convinced that if we do this together, if we keep showing up, if we continue to be tenacious,  if we continue to turn up with strength, numbers, and courage, then we can see slavery eradicated in  our lifetime, "says Christine Caine, A21's Founder.

A21 Overview:
A21 is a global nonprofit organization determined to eradicate human trafficking through awareness,  intervention, and aftercare. Currently operating in 13 countries, A21 aims to combat modern-day  slavery through a multi-dimensional operational strategy: Reach, Rescue, and Restore. Through  partnerships and the efforts of supporters all over the globe, A21 truly believes that a multitude of  victims can be identified and assisted, and perpetrators can be brought to justice.

Millions of slaves.
A $150 billion industry.
1% ever rescued.

More information about Walk For Freedom and A21 can be found on our website:
