Launching our Second Century

Humboldt State University has evolved over the last 100 years – and particularly over the last decade – into an institution known for high quality academic programs, strong values related to sustainability and social justice, hands-on learning, and a strong connection with our unique place. Now, as we begin our second century, we have a plan in place to build on those strengths to offer an even better experience for our students. This Strategic Plan will guide our efforts in the coming years.
