Future Forward Forums: Student Experience, Community Collaboration, Future Proofing

Humboldt State’s Strategic Plan is a blueprint of HSU’s vision and goals for the next five years. It’s a massive undertaking that hinges on ideas from many diverse voices — including yours.


Join us for a series of virtual “Future Forward Forums.” This is a chance for members of the HSU and local community to provide feedback on key guiding questions for many of our themes. This feedback coupled with data will be a valuable resource in helping the working group shape the vision and strategic goals for each theme of the Strategic Plan.

Themes and theme descriptions are below.

Your input is critical for a Strategic Plan that’s not only bold, but also takes into consideration a range of perspectives. So please spread the word and encourage students, staff, and faculty to participate! If you’re unable to attend the forums, you can use this form to submit your comments and ideas.

Thank you for helping to shape the future of HSU.
