Co-Director, NEW Leadership Idaho

Jaci Kettler, PhD

NEWL Idaho

This is my first year as Co-Director of NEW Leadership Idaho. I’ve really enjoyed being part of the program in previous years and am excited to be more involved this year. I grew up on a small farm in Kansas, spent six years in Houston while earning a Ph.D. from Rice University, and joined the political science program at Boise State University in 2014. Many of my research projects examine influence in American politics, including questions related to money in politics, political parties, and the representation of women in subnational politics. I teach a variety of American politics courses at BSU, including Women & Politics and Comparative State Politics. I am looking forward to interacting with all of you soon in this year’s exciting NEW program.
