Purpose & Vision

Humboldt's Purpose

To provide the highest quality and affordable college education built on the contributions of diverse students, staff, and faculty who are committed to a just and sustainable world.

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council recommended a change of Humboldt’s “Mission” to “Purpose” to acknowledge that Humboldt sits on unceded land initially occupied by the first people of this area. The word “Mission” for many connotes colonial language.
