We can all remember those teachers who really understood us and went the extra mile to help. They encouraged us to try another approach - maybe even just when we were ready to give up. Years later, their words and actions continue to motivate us.

Every spring, faculty from all across campus are recognized by the CSUN University Ambassadors for exemplary teaching, mentorship and their positive impact on students' lives. The students make the nominations and, once the selections are made, formally present the awards to their faculty at the Polished Apple Awards event. Read more

The video is a passion project of Kyusuk “Stephan” Chung, associate professor, health administration in the Department of Health Sciences. It is entirely in Spanish, (with English subtitles) and is designed to educate a population--in this instance, the Latino community, that may not know that end-of-life care options extend beyond putting a dying loved one in the hospital or family members struggling on their own to care for that person at home.
