    Amy Vecchione

    Head of Web and Emerging Technology Unit & Associate Professor

    “In my job, I get to work with a lot of units and departments across campus helping students and faculty solve problems. We create knowledge not just consume it; and in the process I love that I can foster student success and empowerment by creating a community of learning that directly impacts their success as a student and their success as they enter the workplace.
    I feel like I am the luckiest person on the campus to do what I do, work where I work; fostering an interdisciplinary community at Boise State University.”
