Welcome to a new academic year!

Hello Humboldt -

It's gorgeous here on the lost coast and Academic Year 2016-2017 is very nearly underway. I hope you will enjoy the new INTL blog - especially if you are currently studying abroad! We want pictures and your reflections on all that you are learning somewhere else. Alums - we also want to hear from you and what you are up to - but everyone is welcome to the space. After all, we are all connected.

Have a great year - wherever you are!

Dr Holmes

Congratulations, to the recipients of the Global Ambassador Scholarship!

Congratulations to two International Studies students, Andrea Sarber and Caitlin McCollum-Martinez, who have been selected to receive the first-ever Global Ambassadors Fund scholarship at Humboldt State! The purpose of this award, established by Dr. Alison Holmes, Leader of the International Studies Program, is to support full-time HSU students seeking to study abroad anywhere in the world for at least one semester. The recipients of this scholarship receive a grant up to $500.00 to cover costs not readily paid from other sources, such as travel expenses and insurance.

HSU Moments

We are looking for your 'HSU moments' - those times you realized what you wanted to do - what you were about - how a person, a class, an experience here or abroad - changed the way you think. Here's one to get you started:


Commencement 2016

What better way to start a new blog than a celebration of success?! The International Studies Capstone class has been thinking about what they might do when they leave HSU and about what kind of leaders they want to be 'out there'. You have probably seen the HSU graduation pledge: "I pledge to exlore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of any job I consider and will try to improve these aspects of any organizations for which I work". Now enjoy the leadership pledges of our very own seniors.
