About the Portneuf Unit

The Portneuf Student Subunit is composed of undergraduate and graduate students from Idaho State University and Brigham Young University - Idaho. Our goals are to stimulate professional development of students through interactions with professionals, as well as taking interest in our local community. We accomplish  this through varying activities, including:
