Part of a virtual tour of all 23 CSU campuses that started in February, the visit presents an opportunity for the Chancellor to get to know HSU by meeting various stakeholders from campus and the local community. The constituents, schedule, and format were determined based on requests by the Chancellor’s Office.
Throughout the day, Chancellor Castro will learn more about Humboldt State’s innovative teaching and learning, research, programs, current initiatives, and the significant impact HSU has on the North Coast.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to a virtual open forum, which will be an opportunity to learn about the Chancellor and for him to answer some questions that are submitted.
