Boise State University
A group of Boise State professors, alumni and staffers led by Prof. Alicia Garza are celebrating the opening of the university’s chapter for Latino alumni. Organizers say the chapter is the first of its kind in Idaho. The creation of Casita Nepantla, a space in the student union building for Latino exhibitions and events, took place earlier this year. It’s all part of an effort to serve the university’s growing Latino population.
