Green Investing

Humboldt State has a long-standing commitment to sustainability. Since the inception of its endowment in 2004, the Foundation has been a leader in socially responsible investing. In 2013, working with a group of students, the Foundation redoubled its commitment by developing a strategy to divest from fossil fuels. Having eliminated direct fossil fuel investments, the Foundation is leading the way for institutions nationwide navigating the difficult challenge of divesting from fossil fuels held in mutual funds. Significantly, HSU is one of only four universities in North America to have signed on to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment.
