President's Fall Address
John Roark/Idaho State University
Idaho State University President Kevin D. Satterlee addresses audience members during the annual President's Fall Address at Frazier Hall on Monday, August 15, 2022.

Jessa and Emma had the honor to sit down with President Satterlee to discuss current actions being taken by the executives of ISU towards sustainability goals on our campus.

At the beginning of the fall 2022 semester, in his Fall Address, President Satterlee made the exciting announcement that ISU was going carbon neutral. You can find the full address here, with the announcement at 57 minutes: Sustainable Idaho was thrilled by this announcement and talked to President Satterlee about some of the logistics. Some of the questions Jessa and Emma asked: What is happening now? How can we–students, staff, and the wider Pocatello community–get involved? And what is President Satterlee most excited about within the new initiatives?
