February 2, 2010 - Change Cabinet Final Report (pdf)

The Cabinet for Institutional Change is charged with initiating comprehensive reforms at Humboldt State University, with the goal of making the institution more effective and responsive. We were formed in response to issues raised during the current reaccreditation process and at the recommendation of Keeling & Associates. However, our goal is broader than simply meeting the expectations of an accreditation body. We seek instead to address numerous, longstanding difficulties that have kept Humboldt State from being as successful as it could.

We see a great deal of promise in the University’s candid assessments of its challenges, its acceptance of critiques by outside experts, and its willingness to confront them in a focused way. Ours is a campus community willing to do what is necessary to improve, and it is clearly committed to the future of the University and its students.

The Cabinet for Institutional Change is working with faculty, students, staff, administrators and alumni to develop specific approaches to five major areas of change. Each area has been identified as important in recent studies and reports. We are confident that Humboldt State will grow stronger as these change processes begin and, especially, as the changes are implemented.
