HSU

Humboldt State University President Dr. Lisa Rossbacher has responded with astonishment to the Eureka NAACP's call for HSU to stop recruiting students of color until the school can assure them a supportive environment.

Part of Dr. Rossbacher's comments from the HSU press release:

The City of Arcata hosted a dialogue on race at the D Street Community Center Thursday evening as the city continues to discuss racial issues a year after the stabbing death of HSU student David Josiah Lawson. 

A panel was asked to answer ten questions compiled by Lawson's mother, Charmaine Lawson.  The questions were also included in the session's handout for residents attending the event. 

The Eureka chapter of the NAACP issued a press release this afternoon that calls on Humboldt State University to stop recruiting in minority-majority neighborhoods until HSU can assure recruited students that "support is in place so that students of color thrive in this community."

The press release:

  Humboldt State University's River Otter Citizen Science Project is a network that is interested in describing the demography of otters on the coats, wetlands, and watersheds in Humboldt and Del Norte counties. Since 1999, citizens and researchers have collected the records and assessed statuses of otter sightings.

The project is run by Professor Jeff Black and students of HSU's Wildlife Department. One of their main goals is to increase public outreach, and obtain more information for how many otters there are. HSU Wildlife Senior Sheri Harte and Chelsea Stewart-Fusek are involved as research assistants, and stopped by the studio to talk more in depth about the project with Danielle Orr.
