  • Leslie Webb

    Leslie Webb

    Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management

    “I love my work. I love working for and with Boise State’s students, staff and faculty. I am privileged to be part of such an extraordinary team and honored to be part of helping Boise State continue to flourish.”

    Education & Experience:

    I’ve been working in student affairs for a number of years. Some of my most rewarding experiences took place while I worked in residence life, student activities, and diversity education. Much of my background involves working with underrepresented student populations and helping majority and dominant populations understand privilege, power and difference. I have a bachelor’s in theatre arts from Central Washington University (and yes, I use that degree every single day), and a master’s in college student personnel from Western Illinois University, and a Ph.D. in educational leadership from Colorado State University.

    Functional Areas

    I provide support to a variety of departments that amplify our vibrant campus life. These areas include student involvement, leadership, sorority and fraternity life, clubs and organizations, student government, international and multicultural student services, gender and LGBT support; campus recreation; career services; and housing and residence life.

    • Fun places to run and bike in the Boise Foothills
    • Healthy smoothies
