alert

During this unprecedented time when campus life and interactions are restricted, creating and fostering community is more important than ever.

Boise State’s Office of Communications and Marketing is committed to ensuring that all students, faculty and staff are engaged with the Boise State community wherever they are. We do this by telling the stories that connect people – the stories that make us proud to be part of this research university.

In the midst of this public crisis, we’re continuing to operate with as much normalcy as possible. That includes highlighting great stories on social media, writing pieces for our news site and Update emails, and developing features for our magazines, Focus and Explore.

But we can’t continue to do this important work without your help.

As our community physically disperses, more than ever we rely on college deans, department chairs, faculty and staff to tell us about great work being conducted remotely: the instructors who are using novel online teaching tools to ensure their students finish the semester successfully; the crucial research projects that continue uninterrupted on campus; the individuals who go above and beyond to keep morale in their department or college strong; any story or anecdote that makes you proud to belong to the Boise State community.

We won’t let the remote delivery of classes or the lack of large in-person events keep us from finding new and vibrant ways to celebrate our milestones and our fellow Broncos.

If you have a story, we will share it. Below is the contact information for each college communications spokesperson for our office. For all other stories, please reach out to ciennamadrid@boisestate.edu.

As one of the top-50 most innovative universities in the country, the national eye will be on Boise State to help lead our industry through a challenging period. How we address this disruption — how we work together, create new approaches and leap unanticipated hurdles — are all valuable stories to tell. From faculty helping each other explore new avenues of remote delivery to the innovative student celebrations and community-building work we must do, we need to communicate our approaches as much as we need to communicate the outcomes.
