Boise State University

Boise State University

Boise State University has been named one of the most innovative national universities in the country by U.S. News and World Report. Our university is designated a doctoral research institution with “high research activity” by the Carnegie Classification of Institution of Higher Education. We are home to more than 25,000 students from every state and more than 60 foreign countries.

 Points of Pride:

  • Boise State University’s College of Education is among the top 30 public universities on the U.S. News and World Report 2020 best graduate schools list. The college has climbed in rankings every year for the last six years and offers two doctoral programs, two educational specialist degrees, 14 master’s degrees and 13 graduate certificate programs training Idaho’s future teachers and educational leaders.
  • Boise State’s College of Business and Economics ranked 127 out of 220 national institutions for its part-time MBA program, jumping more than 40 rankings from its previous year’s ranking of 168.
  •  Boise State University’s College of Engineering has been recognized for its dedication to promoting diversity and awarded the Bronze Award for the 2019 ASEE Diversity Recognition Program by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The Bronze Award is the highest level that was conferred during 2019 and distinguishes colleges who are among the nation’s leaders in inclusive excellence.
  • Boise State University School of the Arts will offer two new degrees in creative writing — a bachelor of arts and bachelor of fine arts — as well as a bachelor of fine arts in narrative arts beginning in fall 2018. Students at Boise State also now will be able to minor in creative writing.
  • Boise State students can choose from more than 200 areas of study in seven academic colleges – including the nation’s only master’s degree in raptor biology.
  • We’ve become Idaho’s largest graduate school through record-setting growth. A recent study showed that Boise State is one of just three universities in the nation that have ranked in the top 5 percent of graduate school growth in both of the past two decades.
  •  Expenditures for research projects at Boise State University reached an all-time high of more than $41 million in fiscal year 2018 – an 18 percent increase over the previous year and impressive 64 percent increase since fiscal year 2014, according to data tracked by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Higher Education Research and Development survey.

 

 About Our Community:

Boise State, Idaho’s largest public university, drove $667.2 million of the state’s economy in fiscal year 2015 and created 6,987 jobs across the state.  Our campus is located in one of the fastest growing high-tech cities in the nation and home to several corporate headquarters, state and federal offices, medical centers and media outlets. The city has garnered national recognition from U.S. News & World Report, Forbes and Inc. for being a great place to live, work and study, and has been dubbed one of the hottest cities for entrepreneurs. With stats like these, it’s easy to see why more than 46,000 graduates have chosen to live in the Treasure Valley after earning their degree from Boise State.

 

 

Diversity Profile: Boise State University

Boise State University is actively committed to diversity and inclusivity, a stance in alignment with our Statement of Shared Values. We recognize that our success is dependent on how well we value, engage, include, and utilize the rich diversity of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni. We believe that prejudice, oppression, and discrimination are detrimental to human dignity, and that a vibrant and diverse campus community enhances the learning environment of the populations that we serve. We are fully committed to treating all stakeholders with dignity and respect, and to working collectively on an ongoing basis to build and maintain a community that understands, celebrates, and values diversity, and expects and fosters inclusivity at all levels.

 

Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is the variety of intersecting identities that make individuals unique, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, socio-economic status, age, country of origin, veteran status, abilities, spirituality, religious beliefs, and political beliefs. Diversity recognizes the uniqueness of individuals, populations, groups and their perspectives and experiences.

 

Inclusivity is the conscious and deliberate decision to continuously work towards the creation of an accepting and nurturing campus climate where similarities and differences are respected, supported, and valued by ensuring the active participation of the entire campus community.

 

An earnest commitment to diversity and inclusivity incorporates the following:

  • Unconditionally rejecting every form of bigotry, discrimination, hateful rhetoric, and hateful action.
  • Understanding that each individual is unique and deserving of respect.
  • Recognizing that people have intersecting identities, which means that individuals experience identity differently, within structures of inequality and/or privilege.
  • Expanding the view of diversity beyond the acknowledgment of commonalities to an acceptance, recognition and honoring of difference.
  • Acknowledging that within diverse populations there are unique individual and collective needs, as well as individual and collective achievements.
  • Moving beyond simple tolerance of differences towards the more comprehensive goals of acceptance, pluralism, and inclusive excellence.
  • Explicitly addressing the barriers to communication, relationship building, and organizational development caused by misunderstanding, dominance, and fear.
  • Promoting active and regular engagement between individuals and groups who represent different characteristics and categories of identity in order to explore difference in a safe and nurturing environment, and to develop understanding across lines of perceived difference.
  • Endorsing our values of open, respectful discourse and exchange of ideas from the widest variety of intellectual, religious, class, cultural, and political perspectives.
  • Making a commitment to inclusivity at all levels and the active and meaningful involvement of diverse individuals in decision-making processes.
  • Developing a process for identifying goals regarding diversity and inclusivity, along with the reasonable and realistic allocation of resources and a structure for accountability for the achievement of those goals.

 

Statement of Shared Values

Boise State University is committed to personal and social development, educational excellence, and civic engagement. Membership in the campus community is a privilege and requires its members to conduct themselves ethically with integrity and civility. Campus community members enjoy the same rights and freedoms that all U.S. citizens enjoy, including personal responsibility for one’s own conduct, behavior and speech.

In a culture of intellectual inquiry and debate, where the search for knowledge and discovery flourish, campus community members are expected to demonstrate civility, abide by norms of decorum, and adhere to the principles of civil discourse. “Being civil means being constantly aware of others and weaving restraint, respect and consideration into the very fabric of this awareness,” (Forni, 2002, p. 9).

Higher education has the duty to educate students to be responsible citizens. Boise State strives to provide a culture of civility and success where all feel safe and free from discrimination, harassment, threats or intimidation.

Boise State University upholds the following values as the foundation for a civil and nurturing environment. Campus community members are expected to adhere to these common values.

  • Academic Excellence – engage in our own learning and participate fully in the academic community’s pursuit of knowledge.
  • Caring – show concern for the welfare of others.
  • Citizenship – uphold civic virtues and duties that prescribe how we ought to behave in a self-governing community by obeying laws and policies, volunteering in the community, and staying informed on issues.
  • Fairness – expect equality, impartiality, openness and due process by demonstrating a balanced standard of justice without reference to individual bias.
  • Respect – treat people with dignity regardless of who they are and what they believe. A respectful person is attentive, listens well, treats others with consideration and doesn’t resort to intimidation, coercion or violence to persuade.
  • Responsibility – take charge of our choices and actions by showing accountability and not shifting blame or taking improper credit. We will pursue excellence with diligence, perseverance, and continued improvement.
  • Trustworthiness – demonstrate honesty in our communication and conduct while managing ourselves with integrity and reliability.
