Welcome to the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion


The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) is focused on systems change in support of equitable and inclusive learning and community spaces.  Examples of this strategic approach to dismantling institutional and systemic racism include involvement with ongoing trainings for all faculty, staff, and administrators as well as implementing new policy and revising inequitable practices that create institutional racism.  In addition to offering educational opportunities for the HSU community, ODEI supports the recruitment and retention of faculty and staff of color.

Finally, as a campus community ODEI's mission is to strive forward with asset-based equity, student success, and student-centered initiatives that create equity, value diversity and create a healthy campus climate.


We acknowledge and are mindful that CSU, Humboldt State University stands on lands that were originally occupied by the first people of this area, the Wiyot Tribe.  We would like to thank the Wiyot and other native peoples for providing us the opportunity to obtain an education on their ancestral lands.
