The campus community is invited to a classroom dedication and reception for Martin Schimpf from 3-5 p.m. Monday, May 7.
Education 112 will be re-named the Martin E. Schimpf Lecture Hall. The event will take place in the classroom and feature remarks from President Bob Kustra.
Schimpf will step down as provost at Boise State on June 30 and return to the faculty. Schimpf joined the Boise State faculty in 1990 and served as chair of the Department of Chemistry and associate dean and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences before being named provost in 2010.
“Along with the day of my marriage, I consider joining Boise State University a moment of great fortune in my life,” Schimpf said last fall in announcing his plans.
During his tenure as provost, he was instrumental in building Idaho’s largest graduate school, including a series of new Ph.D. programs and increasing Ph.D. graduates, which resulted in Boise State being classified as a doctoral research institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education in 2016.
