The Community Impact Program (CIP) is an outcome driven initiative designed in partnership with Boise State and active community stakeholders. This program is designed for students in rural communities in West Central Mountains (McCall and its surrounding areas), Mountain Home and the surrounding areas, and the Western Treasure Valley (Payette and its surrounding areas). Part-time and full-time students are able to complete their education through fully online programs while staying in their hometown, where they can use their skills and knowledge to enhance the social and economic vitality of their community.
