While there I learned that BYU-Provo planned to scale back its marine biology program, and would be taking groups to OIMB only every other year instead of every year. This presented a unique opportunity for BYU-Idaho. When I returned to campus I started laying groundwork and developing a proposal for a marine biology field experience for BYU-Idaho students - something never before done by BYU-I.
Gaining approval for this experience was not easy. After clearing hurdle after hurdle and filling out who knows how many forms...we are now ready to launch the first ever BYU-Idaho Marine Biology Field Experience (MBFE). Woot!
Visit this site often to keep up with the adventures (hopefully not misadventures) of BYU-Idaho students participating in this inaugural offering of the BYU-Idaho Marine Biology Field Experience. We will depart soon to spend a month studying marine biology and doing research at OIMB.
