The name, title, and organizational affiliation of each reviewer:
Cal Poly Humboldt collaborated with CSU Channel Islands and with an internal student team to have them review our STARS report in it's entirety prior to submission.

The members of the Channel Islands that worked on this review were:
-Roxane Beigel-Coryell, Sustainability staff
-Nikita Sarmiento, student assistant

In addition, the Humboldt Office of Sustainability outsourced an internal review of our report to a student team of reviewers. Contributors included:
-Emily Read, graduate student
-Zeen Vincent, undergraduate student
-Hannah Lacey, undergraduate student
-Amber Chung, undergraduate student

A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:
When issues or questions came up from reviewers, the Humboldt STARS Liaison (Katie Koscielak) reached out to the appropriate reporter who had prepared and submitted information to correct the credit and address the identified problem. We believe that at the time of submitting this report, most identified and agreed upon issues have been corrected.

Remaining issues include:
>>Channel Islands: AC 1 - reviewer commented that 3 courses do not show sufficient data to suggest they are sustainability related
>>internal student review team - no outstanding issues. Reviewers did not review PRE credits
