Equity & Diversity

Equity & Diversity

Members of the California State University, Northridge community have a right to work, live, and learn in an environment free from unlawful discrimination based on a protected status. CSUN is committed to maintaining an environment where no student, employee, visitor, or recipient of services and/or benefits provided by the University is subjected to any form of prohibited discrimination in any University program or activity.

To that end, the Office of Equity & Diversity affirms the University's commitment to the core principles of diversity and inclusion, to the policies and practices that ensure equitable consideration and opportunity in education and employment, and to a culture that embraces a multiplicity of talents, knowledge, beliefs, abilities and experiences.

We value inclusion as a necessary condition for achieving institutional excellence, and we strive to provide leadership that extends beyond the fulfillment of basic regulatory requirements. Every member of our campus community plays an integral role in contributing to our diversity and in addressing fundamental issues of bias and exclusion.

Title IX: Addressing Sexual Violence & Gender Equity

CSUN prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, and sexual orientation in academic, extracurricular, and athletic programs and activities.

Your safety and well-being is the University’s priority.
