University Policies

Academic Honesty

Academic honesty is of serious concern at Humboldt. It is integral to all six principles for building successful campus community, especially to the maintenance of a "just" and "disciplined" campus. Students are expected to maintain high standards of academic integrity.

Alcohol & Drug

Humboldt State University subscribes to a drug-free campus and workplace.

Appropriate Use

The Humboldt State University Appropriate Use Policy contains the governing philosophy for regulating faculty, student, and staff use of the University's computing, communications, and information resources. It spells out the general principles regarding appropriate use of data, equipment, software, and networks.

Attendance & Behavior

Students have the right to attend and participate in all classes for which they are officially enrolled. They may be denied only for the purpose of maintaining suitable circumstances for teaching and learning. Any student who has neglected the work of the course or is disruptive to the educational process may be excluded from a course.

Complaints Against Students

Students at Humboldt assume the responsibility for conducting themselves in a manner compatible with the university's function as an educational institution and in a way that will not impair achievement of the university's education mission. Inappropriate conduct by students or applicants for admission is subject to discipline as provided in sections 41301 through 41304 of article 1.1, Title 5, California Code of Regulations.

Complaints against Faculty, Staff, or Administrators

The purpose of the Student Grievance Procedure is to provide a means by which a student may pursue a complaint against a member of the faculty, staff, or administration at HSU for an alleged violation of campus policy or to appeal a grade.

Concerns on Facebook

People make the technology, not only in the fundamental sense of discovery and invention, but also in the sense that they make it happen and that they contour it in ways that reflect our basic humanity. Our basic humanity is for better or for worse, however. It is vulnerable to context, circumstance and interpretation. And so it is important to remember that Facebook is malleable and creates as many obligations as it does opportunities for expression.

HSU Web Policy

The web presents an unparalleled venue for communication with vast and diverse external constituencies, thus its administration at Humboldt State shall be coordinated by the University Web Office. The web, in its design and use, lacks explicit mechanisms for control; however, it can also foster an effective, comprehensive presentation of university information. Such a presentation requires coordination and quality. Though guided by the University Web Office, the responsibility for ensuring that Humboldt State's quality image is protected is shared by all who contribute to it.

Nondiscrimination Procedures

The purpose of these procedures is to provide an opportunity to resolve matters alleging discrimination to students and to employees who are not covered by collective bargaining agreements or California State University system-wide procedures for processing complaints of discrimination.

Sexual Harassment & Assault

Humboldt State University is committed to maintaining an environment free from sexual harassment and sexual assault. Sexual harassment and sexual assault will not be tolerated by the University. They subvert the mission of the University and threaten the careers, educational experience, and well-being of students, faculty, and staff. Sexual harassment interferes with a student's educational performance or an employee's work and creates an atmosphere of intimidation, low morale and hostility that the University cannot permit. Sexual harassment and sexual assault also can cause long term damage to the life and health of victims.
