Data Management Policy

Definition

Humboldt State University is committed to making decisions based on data.

A solid governance foundation paves the way for users to trust and value institutional data and to leverage the data to its potential. Access to campus systems for the purpose of maintaining records within those systems or reporting the data within those systems should be granted to employees with a legitimate business need.

Letter HSU Policy on Content of Syllabi (VPAA 07-02 superseded by P18-01)

The Academic Senate and the President recently approved a new “HSU Policy on Content of Syllabi” (VPAA 07-02 ), which replaces the existing campus policy in the HSU Faculty Handbook and is attached for your reference. In addition to addressing the content to be included in each course syllabus, the policy also encourages all faculty members to post syllabi online in a format that is accessible to individuals with disabilities.

Co-listing of Graduate and Undergraduate Courses Policy

Humboldt State University allows individual degree programs to offer upper-division (300 or 400-level) undergraduate majors courses (no upper division general education courses) with graduate (500- or 600-level) courses having similar course content in a co-listing arrangement with a single instructor and a common meeting schedule. Co-listing (also known as co-convening or dual-listing) of courses allows for more interaction between undergraduate and graduate students and expands the opportunities for undergraduate students to be exposed to instruction at a more challenging level.
