Recently, a team of HSU researchers used a unique combination of citizen science and genetic sampling to estimate the number of river otters around Humboldt Bay.
Approximately half of Humboldt State students are the first in their family to attend a college or university. HSU Geography faculty Stephen and Mary Beth Cunha, having witnessed a generation of HSU students pass through the halls, developed a series of posters to highlight and celebrate first-generation students, graduates, staff and faculty in the Geography department.
