Space Management Policy

Effective Date: 11/13/15



The physical facilities of Humboldt State University are resources that must be managed, maintained, and controlled in a manner that contributes most toward fulfilling the University's mission. Space is assigned on the basis of programmatic need and academic priorities, and may be reassigned if those needs or priorities change.

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.

SA0002 Anti-Hazing and Initiation Policy

Each year universities experience hazing incidents that result in serious physical and/or emotional injury.  As members in university student organizations, students may become victims in what are believed to be acceptable initiation traditions and rituals.  Humboldt State University is committed to maintaining an environment that is safe, healthy and conducive to learning.   We support the educational and character development of students as they transition into university life and continue toward graduation and becoming life-long learners.
