The Simplot Micron Technology Center at Boise State University is getting a new look and new purpose going forward with the intention of fostering greater student success.
It will be an advising and experiential learning facility under the new name of the Simplot Micron Advising and Success Hub (ASH). Academic support and student advisory will be centralized within the building, along with experiential learning, an expanded testing center, and opportunities for studying abroad, service learning, and student research facilities. The building will also house study and computer spaces and general purpose classrooms at its completion.
The idea is to support students with proven high-impact educational practices, which will also help achieve the university’s goal of having 60 percent of citizens between the ages of 25-34 enrolled in a degree program by 2020. Centralizing and co-locating these facilities into a single building that has been renovated and remodeled for updates will allow students to access several services at once, saving time and trouble while also creating innovative opportunities and an encouraging environment.
Boise State University is determined in its initiative to further education over the generations, striving to provide advanced educational opportunities to every individual while attaining the goal of 60 percent enrollment in the allotted time frame.
