Eight HSU students represented HSU at the 30th Annual California State University Student Research Competition, April 29 and 30, at CSU Bakersfield. This annual statewide competition brought together outstanding student researchers from all 23 CSU campuses to compete for research awards in discipline-based categories. Judges included experts from corporations, foundations, public agencies, and colleges and universities.

HSU can be proud of our students’ accomplishments and of how they represented HSU. “They exemplify the excellence of HSU students by being prepared, professional, and passionate about their topics,” said Rhea Williamson, Dean of Humboldt State’s Office of Research, Economic and Community Development (ORECD).

Williamson also lauded the students’ advisors. “They take an interest in integrating research into undergraduate and graduate education. They’re also dedicated to student mentorship and guidance.”

Susan Brater, Administrative Support Coordinator for Dean Williamson, not only provided for all the logistics related to the event but also attended the competition. She noted, “It was an outstanding group of students who bonded and supported each other throughout the competition.”
