Dr. Marlene Tromp, coming from the University of California at Santa Cruz where she served as campus provost and executive vice chancellor, was introduced April 23 as the seventh president of Boise State University. She will also be the first female president in Boise State's history. Tromp will assume her new post on Monday, July 1.

The Idaho State Board of Education approved a three-year contract for Tromp with an annual salary of $425,000.

“It will be an exciting new chapter for me to come to Boise State. I will be proud to lead the dedicated faculty and staff as they serve the students and Idaho, and to advance the transformative work of the institution," said Tromp in prepared remarks. "The future holds great promise for Boise State, its affiliates and the community it serves.”

Tromp grew up in Green River, Wyoming, earned a B.A. at Creighton University, an M.A. in English at the University of Wyoming and a Ph.D. in English at the University of Florida. Before joining the University of California system, Tromp was the dean of Arizona State University's New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences and the vice provost of the university's West Campus. While at Arizona State, Tromp co-chaired a university-wide task force aimed at combating sexual assault.
