Research has historically addressed ecology of anadromous fish, threatened/endangered species, association of fishes and habitat, and ecosystems processes.
Campus Center For Appropriate Technology CCAT is a live-in demonstration home and educational center for appropriate technology and resource conservation on the HSU campus. CCAT offers tours, workshops, and opportunities for hands-on involvement to university students and the general public. CCAT works with fifteen HSU classes a year to incorporate new appropriate technologies into this living laboratory in sustainability. The work done by CCAT has resulted in the following achievements: CCAT uses a fraction of the energy consumed by the average U.S. house, produces almost zero waste, and serves as a national model for appropriate technology.
Northcoast Mathematics and Science Initiative The primary mission of Northcoast Mathematics and Science Initiative (NMSI) is to enhance the mathematics and science teaching professions through recruitment and training of individuals with strong mathematics and science backgrounds and enthusiastic dispositions entering the teaching profession. Related activities also include professional development opportunities for practicing teachers.
Redwood Science Project The Redwood Science Project develops and manages numerous initiatives to support educators from preservice teachers through veteran teachers both in schools and informal settings. The RSP offers high quality professional development workshops and institutes, coaching and mentoring, leadership development, and other career advancement opportunities.
