Becoming a Press Patron

The Press at Cal Poly Humboldt is the only press of its kind in the CSU system.

If you share our mission is to make an impact on the culture of the North Coast, to educate other areas about what is important to our region, to offer every student the chance to publish before graduation, and to teach the professional skill of publishing to our student assistants, please join us by becoming a Patron to the Cal Poly Humboldt Press.

How will your donation to The Press at Cal Poly Humboldt make an impact? Your support means:


  • student assistants
  • internships
  • published projects
  • open access trade books by people from, and about our region
  • open access textbooks to offset the price of tuition and traditional textbooks
  • scholarly journals impacting the academic spaces beyond our university
  • interns and student employees learning the art of publishing
  • North Coast culture and academic resources touching the world beyond the Redwood Curtain, and positively impacting the world within


Students work with community affiliated authors,  learn how to edit, design, lay out, and market these publications - positively transforming the lives of the students, the authors, the academic culture of the North Coast, and in turn, positively transforming the world.
