Introducing the Bias Education Initiative

Printer-friendly version

Dear colleagues,

This week marks the re-launch of Humboldt State’s pathbreaking Bias Education Initiative. HSU’s Bias Education Initiative, based out of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, exists to:

  • Support those who have experienced or witnessed an act of bias, and to 
  • Create learning opportunities across the university to help prevent – and to help the campus community pro-actively address and learn from – experiences of bias, exclusion and hate within the university community.

The Bias Education Initiative works in concert with other offices and initiatives across campus to help create a campus based on respect, civility, and social justice.

If you would like to talk with the BEI regarding concerns about bias, or discuss opportunities for education related to bias, please contact us at:, or 707-826-4BEI
