ENCORE: Boise State University President On Leading Through COVID-19 And Budget Woes
This interview originally aired Sept. 29, 2020.
Boise State University President Marlene Tromp has had a challenging first year in her position. From managing state budget cuts pre-COVID to leading the university through the academic and public health challenges of 2020, we wanted to hear more about how she’s navigating through crisis — while making tough decisions about layoffs and furloughs.
Idaho Matters recorded this interview with Tromp Sept. 24, just hours before the Mountain West Conference decided to bring back Boise State football for a limited season this fall.
