The CSU Board of Trustees has launched a nationwide search for the next President of Humboldt State University.

The search for a new President follows the decision by HSU President Lisa A. Rossbacher to retire from the University effective June 30, 2019. She will have served in her role for five years.

Under CSU policy, the chairman of the CSU Trustees, Adam Day, and Chancellor Timothy White selected a committee made up of various campus stakeholders. Campus and community input will be sought in an open forum to be held on campus.

Open Forum - February 4, 2019 
Time: 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Location: Kate Buchanan Room
