Advancing Cybersecurity Education

Colonial Pipeline, Target, Adobe, Alteryx, Equifax: These are household names, not just because these companies provide important goods and services, but also because they were the victims of major cyberattacks that compromised sensitive customer information and even critical infrastructure. Boardrooms, CEOs and governments have taken notice.

Boise State University is facing the threat and helping fill new cybersecurity jobs with a slate of new programs designed for all with the help of off-campus partners and donors.

Bronco Family Scholarship

For Allie (’11 and ’20) and Geo (’09), it has been something special to be part of the Bronco family. As proud and engaged alumni, they wanted to help passionate students become Broncos for life!

That is why they started the Bronco Family scholarship to help students who are passionate about attending Boise State who may not qualify for other types of scholarships or aid. Scholarships or aid often determine where a student chooses to attend college and they wanted to be able to help a student decide on Boise State.

Meet Kerry McClay

There’s no school like SnowSchool

When alumnus Kerry McClay arrived in Boise from the Midwest to attend high school, he was immediately taken with the mountains surrounding the city.

The experience McClay had as a teenager backpacking in the Sawtooths and other mountain ranges led him to pursue a career in outdoor education. McClay left Idaho after high school and worked for outdoor education programs around the country. One program, in the coastal Santa Cruz mountains, inspired him to create something similar for students in Idaho.

Meet Patrick McCuistion

Alumnus employs his business degree at Amazon

McCuistion discovered that a business and economic analytics degree would combine the core principles of computer science, mathematics, business economics and business intelligence. At Amazon, he conducts research on a core sample of their inventory each week, tracking down defects in the system and reporting those issues to senior operations managers.
