Higher Education Week is this week in Boise
Lewis-Clark State College administrators, staff and faculty will be in Boise this week for Higher Education Week with the Idaho Legislature.
Events kick off early Monday morning with the State Board of Education’s budget presentation to the Legislature’s Joint Finance Appropriations Committee at 8 a.m. This committee is comprised of both members of the Idaho House and Senates and it is where financial decisions are made. JFAC decides how much money will be appropriated to each budget in the state, including how much money higher education will receive.
On Monday night, LCSC administrators, faculty and staff will take part in the ICHEF reception for Legislators at the Convention Center. This reception gives people in higher education a chance to talk with legislators about higher education issues.
On Tuesday, it will be LCSC Day on the third-floor rotunda of the Capitol Building. LCSC representatives will have display board about the college and will greet both visitors and Legislators to inform them about what is happening at LCSC.
Also on Tuesday morning, Thomas will make her annual presentation to the Legislative's Joint Finance Appropriations Committee (JFAC). She will use a similar power point presentation that she made during the all-campus meeting earlier this month.
On Tuesday evening, LCSC will hold a function for Boise-area alumni at 5:30-7 p.m. at Café Bardenay, located on 610 Grove St.
Wednesday morning, President Thomas will present to the House Education Committee.
