ISU News: Shoshone-Bannock Tribes prepare youth for college

"In the spirit of collaboratively honoring the 2010 Memorandum of Agreement between Shoshone-Bannock Tribes and Idaho State University, in part to promote educational access, ISU Native American Academic Services and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes 477 Program announce the "Knowledge and Awareness Nexus" (KAN) pilot program.

The KAN Project is a program for students interested in attending college for the first time or for those that are re-entering school after several years of not attending school. The tribes are currently recruiting students to participate in the KAN Program.

The KAN program will help prepare students for college-level coursework. The program will provide skills that will help them succeed in reaching their academic goals. KAN will consist of 15 Shoshone-Bannock students and will effectively address college-level readiness of English and math. Learning opportunities will be provided in a culturally relevant manner. This cooperative effort between tribes and ISU will offer a more successful and seamless transition to college level coursework for KAN participants."
