Your government and community connection at Cal State Northridge. The Office of Government and Community Relations serves as the primary liaison between the university and government agencies and officials at the local, state and federal levels. The office also assists the campus community in navigating a wide variety of government laws, regulations, programs and agencies. We also work with local business organizations, chambers of commerce, non-profit groups, homeowner associations and the community-at-large to keep them informed of programs and activities at the university.
