Micron Foundation is gifting Boise State $25 million for BSU’s Center for Materials Research building, to be located next to BSU’s engineering operation at the corner of University Drive and Manitou Avenue. This is the largest donation Micron has ever made, which covers nearly half the cost of the $55 million center.

The building will house a 250-seat lecture hall, a pair of 85-seat classrooms, and research space for use by professors and students from materials science and other sciences.
