Shelton Woods Ph.D.
Associate Dean of the Honors College and Professor of East/Southeast Asian History
Since 1994, I’ve worked as the East/Southeast Asian Historian at Boise State University. BoiseState University is a great place to teach, research, and write. In many ways, however, Boise is so far from where things started for me. I was born and raised in the Philippines; for my first eighteen years I lived in Baguio City and moved to the United States following high school graduation. While I have great memories of youth (especially the friends that made Baguio such a wonderful place to grow up in), it is hard to beat a beautiful place like southwestern Idaho. The University is supportive of innovative teaching and cutting edge research.
