At 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14, the Department of Sociology will host a virtual celebration of the life and work of Boise State sociology professor Michael Blain, who passed away July 21 at the age of 77.

The celebration can be joined via this Zoom link.

Blain joined Boise State in 1981 and served four terms as chair of the sociology department during his tenure. Colleagues remember him as a popular teacher with a long, positive legacy in transforming people’s lives.

In addition, in honor of Blain, Boise State University Advancement has created a memorial page to collect donations in his memory, all of which will go to fund sociology programming and students.
