Statement of Purpose

Redwood Roots’ purpose is to provide a platform that highlights and shares stories of HSU’s community engagement in Humboldt County and beyond. We publish stories that promote deep and enriching connections through learning, to enhance inclusivity within the community through social and environmental justice.

Values

  1. Redwood Roots is a community platform that serves to provide a direct, diverse, and transparent narrative that further encourages communal collaborations between students, alumni, faculty, and community partners.
  2. We highlight the diverse approaches HSU students engage in by combining learning objectives with community service, providing enriched experiences for personal and professional growth, and meeting the local needs of different communities.
  3. We share stories promoting the welfare of others through an intersectional lens that creates lasting change, with acknowledgement and respect to the past.
