HSU Announces Arkley Bigfoot Interdisciplinary Studies Institute Group, $4 million grant
Humboldt State University, a subsidiary of the California State University, is proud to present a new interdisciplinary institute, ABISIG, the Arkley Bigfoot Interdisciplinary Studies Institute Group. ABISIG is possible thanks to a generous $4 million founding grant by Rob Arkley, Jr., now Institute Professor Dr. Robin Arkley, Jr.
ABISIG will be examining the implications of Bigfoot across disciplines including hotel management, public relations, biology, anthropology and, of course, theology. The Institute will accept graduate students, and it is anticipated that (unlike, e.g., Nursing), the courses will be extremely profitable. We also anticipate an 82% overhead charge, and a decently-large conference budget.
Courses will begin in the fall. The local community is welcome to participate via extension. A small fee of $1,500 will cover materials in each course. Course titles haven’t been finalized, but it is anticipated that the survey course will be called “Cannabis, Bigfoot, and the Tourist Dollar: A Comparative Analysis of Floral vs Animal Approaches to the Sustainability of a formerly Colonial Culture.”
