(AUDIO) Capps, Stewart and Fisher

If you catch yourself dropping a “Humboldt State” or “HSU” in the coming months, it’s OK. We’re all adjusting. But besides the big name change, how will the historic transition of our local university to Cal Poly Humboldt alter the lives of its students and the community around it? 

On this week’s edition of Humboldt Holding Up, we speak with Cal Poly Humboldt officials — Provost Dr. Jenn Capps, Executive Director of Initiatives Connie Stewart and Vice President for Facilities Mike Fisher —about how California’s massive financial investment in their school and the shift to an emphasis on STEM fields might impact all of us in the coming years.
