As you may know, the federal government recently authorized funding to assist students in need. Known as the CARES Act, $5.1 million was available to Humboldt to disperse to students impacted by COVID-19. HSU has dispersed those funds, but students are still in need. Humboldt has quietly continued to ask our friends to support our students through donations to the Student Adversity Fund and other funds. It is not a secret that our students will continue to need the generous support of our alumni and community. If you are interested in helping, there are a number of funds to consider on the Humboldt Connected giving site
Humboldt will continue our instruction through the summer in a virtual mode. As we look further ahead, rest assured, we will be open and exceling somehow and some way in the fall. Whether it is virtual, face-to-face, or someplace in between, we will be doing what Humboldt does, guiding our students toward a degree while staying focused on offering a positive, meaningful educational experience. We are clear-eyed and mission-focused, and we are committed to our students and this community.
It is spring. Yes, it has arrived. The grass is growing, flowers are blooming, and we are celebrating over 2,100 new Humboldt graduates. It has been an amazing year.
