Dr. Lisa Rossbacher shares an excellent expression of Humboldt State University's graduation pledge through an HSU graduate and his sister's efforts with Klean Kanteen. 


HSU

The HSU Pledge is a new pledge which encourages students of all standing to get involved on our campus and in our commuity. With the success and excitement born from the Graduation Pledge, the question was, "why wait?" We have seen tremendous support and enthusiasm for the Graduation Pledge at commencement ceremonies since 1987, and we hope to channel that energy back into our campus community by making lasting connections. The HSU Pledge is a simple reminder that we, students, faculty, staff and alumni, have the power to build our campus into one that we are proud of.

Dr. Rossbacher reflects on the movement of athletes and spectators exercising their right to protest during sporting events, including at Humboldt State University. Students remained seated as the National Anthem was performed during HSU's first home football game this season. This action was a symbol of solidarity with San Francisco 49er, Colin Kaepernick, for his ongoing protest against inequalities in our nation. Players from the HSU volleyball team have joined in the silent protest in a recent home game.
