Kustra Announces Major Changes for Boise State

In his State of the University Address, Boise State President Dr. Bob Kustra revealed that major things are happening on campus.

First, the University has received a ten-million dollar federal grant to build a Center for Biomedical Research.  Students will be able to boost cell research at the Center, which will help impact how heart disease and strokes are treated.  This has implications not only for students, professors, and the reputation of Boise State, but for citizens of the state of Idaho and the  United States.

Second, Kustra announced that the College of Innovation and Design, something he has been working on for some time, is now a reality.  This too has a major impact on how the university is viewed by its peers.  The field is on the cutting edge at major universities, including Stanford.

Boise State has grown its number of graduates by 70% in less than fifteen years.
