    Jennifer Stevens, an environmental urban historian and assistant clinical professor in the Boise State School of Public Service, received a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to research a largely forgotten part of Boise’s history — the “deindustrialization” that transformed Boise into the aspirational green city it is today.

  • For Honors College student Jessica Coca, Boise State has always felt like a second home.
    Coca’s family lives nearby, her mom works on campus and she even attended preschool at the Boise State Children’s Center.

    “I love the sense of community at Boise State, I can walk into any building and there is always a person who can help if I have a question or problem; campus feels very inviting, safe, and fun.”

    Majoring in international business with a finance minor, Coca highly recommends Honors College and Sawtooth Hall to students thinking about joining: “It's a great program to meet peers and professors, and the many events are some of the best memories of my freshman year.”

    “Being able to sit in Albertsons Library and look out onto the river, and enjoy being so close to downtown and to the mountains is wonderful,” Coca says, but after visiting Paris a couple of times, she also looks forward to studying with Boise State Study Abroad in her junior year.

    As for after graduation, “I plan to be a financial analyst, and my dream is to work with and travel to businesses all over the world.”

  • A time honored musical tradition for residents of the Treasure Valley, the Gene Harris Jazz Festival will return for its 22nd season April 3-5, 2019. It will offer three days of performances, clinics, lectures, workshops, open rehearsals and more.

    In true community spirit, the festival also will offer a number of free events at the Boise State Student Union. For details visit https://geneharris.boisestate.edu/schedule-and-tickets/.

    Thursday, April 4:
    The Gene Harris Jazz Festival - Headline Concert will feature the music of Rafael P. De Lima and the Gene Harris Jazz Festival Orchestra at The Morrison Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are available for purchase at https://boi.st/GHJFConcert2019.

    Friday, April 5:
    The Gene Harris Jazz Festival - Club Night will feature several jazz musicians and bands, jam sessions and more at various venues located in Downtown Boise. Tickets are available for purchase at https://boi.st/GHJFClubNight2019

    Gene Harris was born in Michigan and spent his life as a working jazz pianist. He made scores of recordings for companies including Verve and Blue Note. He moved to Boise in the 1970s. Longtime residents will remember him as a regular act in the lobby of the Idanha Hotel — when the space, now home to Guru Donuts and the Bombay Grill — was a sleek, dark piano bar and the Idanha was operating as a hotel. Celebrated Boise musician Curtis Stigers regularly sat in on open jam sessions with Harris at the Idanha while still in high school. He’s spoken often in interviews about the significance of Harris in his own music education, and of Harris’ generosity in sharing his own musical knowledge. So it’s appropriate that the festival benefits local music students. Since 1996, a portion of profits have helped support the Gene Harris Endowment, which provides scholarships for students enrolled in the Boise State University Department of Music.

  • Similar to a picture from an instant camera, Chanel Talbot’s interest in photography developed rather quickly.

    “After one of my very first high school assignments, my teacher told me that he was impressed with my work and submitted it to a Boise State juried high school exhibition. My photos were accepted into the show and I’ve been taking photos ever since.”

    Now in her final year at #BoiseState, Talbot, a visual arts with photography emphasis major, spends almost as much time in the darkroom as the classroom, and appreciates the community feeling in the Boise State University College of Arts and Sciences.

    “The students and faculty are always so supportive and willing to give constructive feedback; I love the friendships I’ve made through collaborations and working alongside my peers.”

    After graduation, Talbot plans to continue her education by pursuing an MFA in photography, “It would be really cool to eventually become a photography professor to encourage and inspire other young, emerging artists like my professors here at Boise State have done for me.”

  • A big congratulations to Emilio Amaro Jaramillo, who recently received a Life-long Learner Award from #BoiseState's Center for Professional Development!

    Visitors may not see Emilio as they dash across campus, but they can’t help but notice his handiwork. The senior landscape technician starts each day with a “higher goal” in mind — making Boise State one of the most beautifully landscaped universities in the country.

    “I try every day to keep my area like a beautiful garden. I do this to give all our community the pleasure of a nice environment, hoping this beauty will encourage them to be productive and happy,” he said.

    In addition to more than seven years of working at Boise State, his wife has taught Spanish, a daughter is majoring in psychology and another graduated with degrees in political science and Spanish and is pursuing her master’s degree at The George Washington University in D.C.

    Because of Emilio’s leadership and rich participation in the Prepare to Lead program, The Center for Professional Development decided to award him its first ever full-ride scholarship to an intensive Leadership Development Program.

  • Innovation can go only so far without the representation of women in STEM professions.

    There are many reasons to introduce, at an early age, girls and women to science, technology, engineering and math fields –– from STEM related jobs being in high demand, many with higher incomes, to offering a unique perspective that often is overlooked in the traditionally male-dominated industries.

    At SheTech Explorer Day, KTVB's Kim Fields spoke with Alecia Hoobing about getting more girls aware, interested and excited about these important career options. The event, presented by the Women Tech Council, hosted more than 350 Treasure Valley high school girls and was held at Boise State University on January 29.

  • The National Science Foundation (NSF) Geosciences Directorate awarded Boise State University’s Isotope Geology Laboratory (IGL) a grant of $672,000 as part of the Laboratory Technician Support program, making the Boise State lab one of only seven in the nation to receive such funding. The grant will fund five years of technician support and further the laboratory’s geochronology research.

    Geochronology is the analysis of radioactive decay in rocks to determine Earth’s epochs and evolution, and enables scientists and researchers to paint a more complete and detailed account of the planet’s formation and history. The lab specializes in U-Pb geochronology, or the study of uranium-lead decay, to create this geologic timeline.

    Professor Mark Schmitz, director of the IGL, explained that the grant will ensure Boise State’s geochronology work is nationally accessible and recognized. At Boise State, this new work will be carried out in the lab by Research Associate, Corey Wall.

    “This grant is elevating our status from a well-respected research laboratory to a national facility for geochronology,” said Schmitz.
