Light the Morrison Center!

Help bring light to the Department of Music! The Morrison Center Recital Hall lighting system, originally installed during the construction of the Center in 1982, is on its last legs. It’s difficult for musicians on stage to see their music, and we fear that the audience experience is diminished as well (pun intended).

 

The Recital Hall is the only remaining performance venue on campus to have the original Strand Century Lighting system in place. The Department of Music has taken gentle care of the system for the past 37 years, but now materials used in this system have become obsolete; we literally cannot effectively change a light bulb! The other performing arts venues on campus–Morrison Center Main Hall, Danny Peterson Theatre, Special Events Center, and Taco Bell Arena–each have had updates and upgrades to their lighting systems, but unfortunately, the Recital Hall has not.

 

A new lighting system for the Recital Hall is not merely a wish–it is a necessity. Let’s not let the hall go dark. Please help bring light to the Morrison Center Recital Hall so our students, faculty and guest artists can continue to make beautiful music here! 

 

The Working History Center Fund!

The Working History Center (WHC), an initiative of the Department of History in the College of Arts and Sciences, advocates for relevant and vital historical scholarship, education, and professional opportunities to make history work for our communities. The WHC serves faculty and students by developing curriculum in public and applied history, facilitating funding and networking opportunities, and cultivating professional opportunities for students and scholars who want to put history to work.


The WHC provides opportunities for Boise State students and faculty to use history to meaningfully engage with audiences outside of higher education. The initiative will help fund currently unpaid student internships in a variety of fields, from museums and archives to transportation policy and nonprofit programming, providing students with invaluable work experience and networking opportunities, while also assisting our partner organizations. Your generous donations will ensure the continued growth and success of the Working History Center and the students, faculty, and communities it supports. 

 

The Chemistry Instructional Center

The Chemistry Instructional Center (CIC) provides an environment for students to receive the personalized assistance they need to succeed in rigorous large enrollment chemistry courses. We seek your financial contribution to purchase the resources and materials most needed by instructional assistants to maximize their ability to help students understand difficult concepts and build critical problem-solving skills.  Donations will be used to purchase molecular model kits, drawing materials, visual aids, and electronic instructional accessories (i.e. iPads with chemistry learning apps).  Over 3,000 students from a variety of majors campus-wide will be positively impacted by your contribution.

 

The CIC is more than a center where students come to learn chemistry; it’s a place where students transform. Over the span of one semester, not only do we see their understanding grow, we see their confidence growing too. Help us take their learning and confidence to the next level. For example, we want to see student growth by having them use models to build a complex molecule that, two weeks ago, looked only like lines and dots. We want them to visualize their lab procedures by drawing them out on individual whiteboards, which aids students to connect practical lab science to data analysis.The CIC isa place where students can develop lifelong friendships or find their study buddy for the next 1-2 years. Again, the CIC is where students come to learn chemistry and transform into lifelong learners.
