  • Just across the river from campus, along the Boise River Greenbelt, sits the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, a lovely outdoor sanctuary that honors the triumph of human rights and reminds us to be decent, if not kind and outgoing to others.

    Today, the 90th anniversary of the birth of Anne Frank, we invite all Broncos and members of our community to take a moment to observe the legacy of Anne Frank and practice the lessons she continues to teach us about tolerance and the importance of human rights for all.

  • Boise State is celebrating PRIDE with displays that represent our collective, ongoing dedication to cultivating an inclusive, intersectional and accepting environment on campus, and in the community - though our commitment goes beyond flags and lights.

    At the forefront of this dedication is the Boise State University Gender Equity Center. The Gender Equity Center offers no-cost, confidential support services, LGBTQIA+ resources, educational outreach and cultural advocacy. Located on the second floor of the Boise State Student Union, the center is an open, safe space for studying, networking, relaxing and more.

    The Gender Equity Center recently launched the LGBTQIA+ Commitment Card program to shift the campus climate to be more inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual and allied+ (LGBTQIA+) students and colleagues. Commitment cards list Gender Equity Center LGBTQIA+ focused workshops and programs on which individuals can affix a sticker for each program they complete. The goal is to get members of the campus community to post cards and participate in each of the listed programs to earn a rainbow of stickers that show a willingness to get involved to create a more inclusive campus.

    Upcoming workshops:

    June 12: LGBTQIA+ Identities - Supporting the LGBTQIA+ Community Workshops - https://boi.st/LGBTQIAsupport612

    June 13: LGBTQIA+ Identities - Trans Identities Workshops - https://boi.st/LGBTQIATransID613

    July 30: LGBTQIA+ Identities - Supporting the LGBTQIA+ Community Workshops - https://boi.st/SupportLGBTQIA730

    July 31: LGBTQIA+ Identities - Trans Identities Workshops - https://boi.st/LGBTQIATransID731

    Commitment cards and stickers are distributed at Boise State University Gender Equity Center LGBTQIA+ focused events. If individuals have questions or need a card and/or sticker for attendance at a previous program, contact the Gender Equity Center at genderquitycenter@boisestate.edu or (208) 426-4259.

  • There are few scarier things in a doctor's office than hearing the words 'brain tumor.' For those fortunate enough to buck the disease, life changes. Perspectives shift, goals become clearer... as is the case with mechanical engineering student Tanner Effinger. His diagnosis lead him on the road to his career passion:

    โ€œIโ€™d like to be able to help with the journey of developing 3d printers for organ donation, or skin graphing, or be able to help develop cures with chemists and pharmacists to build a cure for Celiac Disease or continue to work towards curing cancer," he said.

    Following a harrowing health nightmare resulting in the removal of a brain tumor the size of his fist by the Mayo Clinic, Tannerโ€™s courage and exceptional fortitude manifests itself in his dreams for the future.

    โ€œI love the way that Boise State does its mechanical engineering program because it has the biomedical aspect, and after everything that happened, I have a deeper interest in the medical field. So Iโ€™m like โ€˜What if I can take my passion for how things are being developed, and technology and machinery to be able to develop biomedical technologies that can help aid the world?โ€

  • Boise is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, and the boom has caught the attention of national publications, including Forbes, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Many residents, from long-time Idahoans to recent transplants, have mixed opinions about the spike in population and its impact on the valley.

    Rachelle Stoll, a Boise State student working towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics, experiments with photography to visualize her interpretation of the growth. In her most recent photographic series, she uses a tilt-shift lens to change the plane of sharp focus, resulting in what looks like a miniature environment - an effect that can help illustrate what many locals refer to as Boiseโ€™s โ€œsmall town feel,โ€ even as development continues.

    Rachelle says this about her creative photos:

  • Inventing a new tool isnโ€™t easy. Inventing a new tool for use in outer space? Even more daunting. But thatโ€™s the task Boise State Microgravity undergraduate research team is taking on through NASAโ€™s Micro-g NExT challenge. The program invites undergraduate teams to design and build a tool that addresses a current space exploration challenge.

    NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration is working on systems to explore beneath the icy surfaces of โ€œocean worldsโ€ such as Europa and Enceladus โ€“ the moons of Jupiter and Saturn respectively. NASA has developed a mini-arm for remotely operated vehicles. It challenged students to create an end-effector โ€“ essentially a hand for the mini-arm โ€“ that can gather samples of ice and other materials.

    โ€œThis is not just a mechanical device,โ€ said former astronaut Steve Swanson, a distinguished educator in residence at Boise State and team advisor. โ€œThis one is complicated, with electronics and software. Itโ€™s a great challenge.โ€

    For all the high-end technology it must include, the end effector can weigh no more than two pounds.

    Follow along on Tuesday, June 4 as the team takes over Instagram during their testing day from the Neutral Buoyancy Lab at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

  • A creative team from Boise State led by Michael Baltzell, an expert in theatrical set design and professor in the Theatre Arts Department at Boise State University, is working with Zoo Boise to recreate the worldโ€™s wild places.

    Michael, along with Boise State student Kaitie Branton and Boise artist Angi Grow, have painted interior murals in several new indoor exhibits, including those for wild dogs, hyenas and gibbons.

    When the zoo began its most recent expansion โ€” the 2.5- acre Gorongosa National Park Exhibit set to open in this summer โ€” it was natural to call on Michael, said Zoo Boise Director Gene Peacock. โ€œWeโ€™re neighbors with Boise State, first and foremost, and we have a great relationship,โ€ Gene said.

    Projects like the large murals and other visual elements they have created for the zoo are a good fit for this theater-savvy crew. During the summer, the same team designs sets for the Idaho Shakespeare Festival. โ€œWeโ€™re used to working on a larger scale. Weโ€™re aware of budgets in terms of time and money, and working within those constraints,โ€ said Michael.

  • The fifteen students enrolled in Brian Wileyโ€™s graphic design class are packing a semesterโ€™s worth of credits in a concentrated curriculum โ€“ at a discount โ€“ during Boise Stateโ€™s summer session.

    Visual arts major Travis Hoctor enjoys the compacted content. โ€œWeโ€™re here four days of the week so you have a lot more hands-on time in the classroom and only have to focus on one class versus five of them," he said.

    Brian, an assistant professor in the Boise State University Department of Art, Design, & Visual Studies, said that the unique summer schedule is a perfect fit for his class, which is heavily technique based.

    โ€œIf I show them a screen printing process on Monday they have three consecutive days to practice it," he said. "If they happen to encounter a mistake on a Wednesday night they donโ€™t have to wait until the following week to ask me a question; they can talk to me the next morning.โ€

    Kristin Dwyer, a third-year graphic design major, said that enrolling in seven-week classes over the break helps her to stay engaged and keep her skill sets sharp. โ€œThis is my second time taking summer classes, and with the reduced fees, it just made sense financially.โ€
