The new BHSU website is live
Over the summer, Phase 2 of the BHSU website upgrade was completed. You’ll notice a number of functional, navigational, and design changes as we enhanced the marketing focus of our web presence.
Links for faculty and staff are compiled here and for current students here.
The BHSU website remains decentralized. Departments are encouraged to identify web editors to update their pages. If you have comments or questions, please email web@bhsu.edu.
