Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State University has hired the director of the Harvard Innovation Lab to lead the school's College of Innovation and Design. The Idaho Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/16njPsm) that 45-year-old Gordon Jones will start as dean of the college on June 1. Jones says Boise State is well recognized as on an upward trajectory.
