Boise State did respond to multiple media requests for comment. Here is their entire release on the topic courtesy of Boise State:
"Boise State University understands that the open exchange of ideas, which is fundamental to education, can introduce uncomfortable and even offensive ideas. However, the university cannot infringe upon the First Amendment rights of any members of our community, regardless of whether we, as individual leaders, agree or disagree with the message. No single faculty member defines what Boise State — or any public university — endorses or stands for."
The university was the subject of criticism from then US Attorney General Jeff Session for their treatment of conservatives. The legislature did cut money from Boise State's budget this year over concerns on what is being taught to incoming students.
