About Us

The Business Partnerships Hub was created to help you access all that Boise State University has to offer, and to create lasting connections. Hub members will work to understand your goals and bring together the University’s resources across departments, offices and services to create mutually beneficial relationships.

The Business Partnerships Hub was formed in 2020 through a collaboration between the Office of Research and Economic Development and University Advancement, and quickly grew to include many offices from across campus with significant connections to the business community.

Endorsed by President Marlene Tromp, the Business Partnerships Hub encourages industry engagement and strategic collaborations that benefit businesses while propelling student success, growing economic development and promoting scientific achievement.

Cross Campus Team

The Cross Campus Team is comprised of campus unit leaders whose work is centered around business and industry relations. This group shares information and creates opportunities to enhance partnerships that increases student success, our research enterprise and serve our business community.

Vision Team

The Vision Team is comprised of university Vice Presidents and the Executive Director of Corporate Partnerships. This team provides direction for the Hub and identifies intersections between business, industry and economic development and university priorities. This team also reviews and priorities internal recommendations of the Hub’s Cross Campus Team.

President’s Business Advisory Team

These business leaders recognize the importance of higher education to the state of Idaho and are committed to the success of Boise State. Together they form the President’s Business Advisory Council. The Council’s purpose is to create a forum for regional collaboration that advances Idaho and its economy.
