Who We Are

Boise State University has a number of faculty members, staff, and community partners with expertise across a diverse range of urban and community focused topics. We collaborate with public agencies and community organizations to develop sustainability benchmarks, regional public opinion surveys, place-making studies, public program evaluations, strategic investment plans, economic development analyses, project facilitation, and housing policy assessments. The program provides undergraduate research support and gives students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to these types of real world projects.
