Goals of HEIF
The five primary goals of the HEIF
The HEIF will achieve its mission through projects that are developed by students and, to the extent possible, implemented, monitored, and maintained with strong student involvement.
The HEIF will require accountability by measuring and reporting quantitative and qualitative results, as well as levels of involvement by students and other participants, in all its projects.
The HEIF will strive to make its projects derive from and be connected to the curriculum of the university.
The HEIF will support dissemination of information about its projects through public outreach and educational activities.
The HEIF will seek to publicize accomplishments and experiences associated with its program and projects through a variety of media.
The Humboldt Energy Independence Fund is a student-run organization that focuses on creating a more sustainable campus by implementing projects inspired from student ideas. Some notable projects include the installation of photovoltaic solar panels on top of Music A building, hydration stations that can be found all around campus, and the relighting of the Redwood Bowl which has reduced light pollution and cut energy costs. Students can make a direct and effective impact to change the way Humboldt State conserves energy, a primary goal of the Fund.
