President’s Welcome

President Kustra, State of the University Address, John Kelly Photo

Boise State University is the place to be. Powered by creativity and innovation, we stand uniquely positioned in the Northwest as a metropolitan research university of distinction.

Located at the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills, we enjoy pristine outdoor recreational opportunities, from whitewater rafting to snow skiing. As Boise’s University, we also are situated less than a mile from downtown, an urban capital city that is an ideal place to live and learn in the center of government, business, arts, technology and health care.

From its earliest days, Boise State has been a place where students excel. With the university’s commitment to the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, our award winning Foundational Studies Program, and accomplished faculty devoted to excellent teaching, it’s no wonder our students go on to succeed. Our undergraduates are among the primary beneficiaries of our dedication to advanced graduate studies and the pursuit of groundbreaking research and technology.

You may know us best for the unique color of our football field, but I can assure you that the innovation and creativity behind Boise State’s success goes far beyond the blue.

There is so much more to learn about our university. Website directories and the A-Z index can help you find exact contact and subject information. I invite you to explore and discover the innovative culture that is Boise State

Dr. Bob Kustra
President
