Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

A Commitment to Inclusive Excellence

Diversity affirms our humanity. Equity serves social justice. Inclusion enriches our community and sense of belonging. At Cal Poly Humboldt, these core values are at the heart of what we do and the signal fire guiding us forward, in our lives both on campus and far beyond it. We strive to create a safe and welcoming campus — a community that inspires students to transform relationships now and the policies of the future, reshaping the world for the better.

Strategic Inclusivity

Diversity, equity, and inclusion don’t just happen – they require intentional action. We achieve our purpose by implementing our six-pillar framework of inclusive excellence, ensuring these values are embedded into policy and practice at every level of CalPoly Humboldt.

In Service to All

We are proud of our Hispanic-Serving and Minority-Serving Institution designations, and we are committed to ensuring the success of our historically marginalized students, including those from low-income and first-generation college families.

Food as a Right

“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.” Our student-borne, one-of-a-kind Food Sovereignty Lab will serve as a hub for research, collaboration, and indigenous representation.
