Welcome to the Academic and Career Advising Center. ACAC’s core values center around helping students reach their potential personally, academically, and professionally. We start with their transition to college by providing resources, academic advising, and a road map for gaining the most from their college experience. We then help connect them with career-related opportunities to try out the skills they have learned in the classroom and prepare for their transition from college students to professionals and leaders in their communities. 
Land Acknowledgement: The staff of the Academic and Career Advising Center acknowledge that the land on which HSU sits is Wiyot ancestral land, and Humboldt is the unceded territory and traditional ancestral homeland of the Indigenous nations: Hupa, Karuk, Mattole, Tolowa, Wailaki, Wiyot, Yurok, and other original inhabitants of Humboldt County. We respect and share our gratitude to Indigenous communities. We thank and honor the original caretakers of this land that continues to be cherished and protected, as elders have instructed the young through generations. Please consider supporting and acknowledging tribal sovereignty with an honor tax contribution through www.honortax.org.
Labor Acknowledgement: Today we recognize and acknowledge the labor upon which our country, state, and institutions are built. Remember that our country is built on the labor of enslaved people who were kidnapped and brought to the US from the African Continent and recognize the continued contribution of their survivors. We acknowledge all immigrant labor, including voluntary, involuntary, and trafficked peoples who continue to serve within our labor force.
