A Lasting Impact
Weber State values High Impact Educational Experiences (HIEEs). This event is designed to allow students to engage and form connections: with each other, with WSU staff and faculty, with the nature in the intermountain West. We hope that students who participate in the Student Snake River trip have the opportunity to engage with learning outcomes, such as *meaningful interactions, diverse and inclusive experiences, and personal investment.

Trip Support Available:
* Tanner Fund-
The Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Student Support Fund set up to help nontraditional and underrepresented students remove financial barriers in order for them to take advantage of community engagement opportunities in their communities. Opportunities students can seek funding for are limitless, but must be something they otherwise would not engage in due to financial barriers (it must not be something they are already doing).
