Students, staff, and faculty can still participate in the spirit of ideaFest by disseminating & sharing their research & creative activities in the following ways: 


During the week of May 3-7th, Humboldt State University will be highlighting examples of the research & creative works on the new virtual platform called, "Platform Q!" You can click the icon above to "Enter IdeaFest"

Anyone from the HSU community can also submit their academic essays or research articles for the next issue of ideaFest Journal, HSU’s own peer-reviewed academic journal. The deadline to submit your publication proposals is December 31, 2021. For more information about ideaFest Journal contact Kyle Morgan at

This year’s ideaFest is sponsored by the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, Marketing & Communications, and the HSU Library in collaboration with the Colleges. We are all excited for the opportunity to support the development and dissemination of research & creative activities at Humboldt State University. Next year, we look forward to hosting the 9th Annual ideaFest in-person to once again connect our campus community to the scholarly research, creative arts, and performances here at Humboldt State University.
