To the Campus Community:

Last week, the university announced the passing of President James Cleary, who provided distinguished leadership to our institution from 1969 to 1992.

To honor President Cleary’s life and legacy, the university will hold a memorial for him on Tuesday, May 22, from 10 a.m. to approximately 11:30 a.m. in the Grand Salon of the University Student Union. The program will include speakers who will recall President Cleary and his numerous achievements. Members of President Cleary’s family will be in attendance.

The Cleary family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, any gifts honoring the memory of James Cleary and his late wife Mary be made as follows:

California State University, Northridge Foundation
18111 Nordhoff Street
Northridge, CA 91330-8296

The check or cover letter should note the gift is for the “James and Mary Cleary Memorial Fund.”

The university is proud to have this opportunity to honor President Cleary and his decades of service to Cal State Northridge. I hope all interested members of the campus community and the university’s extended family can participate in this event to celebrate President Cleary’s distinguished life.
