HSU’s ideaFest has grown in recent years to include visual and performing artists, musicians, filmmakers, and much more! Each year in addition to our poster presentations, HSU Students, Staff, and Faculty arrange live performances and presentations during the reception. Listed below are the projects and performers from 2019's ideaFest. While the symposium this year is now being hosted online, we hope to include many selected written and digital performances.

These videos aim to build awareness as to what is currently being done and what steps we need to take in order to create accessibility on this campus through the use of Universal Design, accessible documents and more. It includes interviews by faculty, students and staff who are familiar with these issues and work with them every day. This project is funded through the GI 2025. Its purpose is to "remove obstacles and support innovation to increase student success in graduating on time!
