A Center for Student Success

The William M. and Karin A. Eames Advanced Technical Education and Innovations Complex (Eames Complex) is the new name for an Idaho State University campus facility.

The newly named facility will serve as a state-of-the-art technology and research complex, focused on expanding College of Technology programs and providing space for related research.

The new name honors William Eames, a dedicated alumnus and longtime donor, who has pledged a $2.5 million gift to support the facility. His pledge is the lead gift to a $5 million campaign currently underway by Idaho State University. Eames has also assisted in securing an additional commitment of $250,000 for the campaign. Eames has supported ISU student scholarships for more than 25 years.

“Idaho State gave me an opportunity many years ago, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. We appreciate being able to make a gift that will allow students to advance their education and secure careers in high-demand, well-paying fields,” said Eames.

ISU announced plans to relocate a number of College of Technology programs into the facility to meet a growing enrollment. The move of technical programs into the complex will create a number of synergistic opportunities for STEM-related programs at the University. Programs that already have premier educational opportunities will now have premier facilities.
