CSUN Flag Protocol

CSUN flag at the Oviatt LibraryCalifornia State University, Northridge's institutional U.S. flag flies atop the Oviatt Library. As noted on CSUN's Pride and Traditions website, the flag was re-sited there in the aftermath of the 1994 Northridge Earthquake. U.S. flags are also maintained by Student Housing, the University Student Union, and Police Services at their respective facilities. CSUN also flies an institutional flag at the campus's transit station on Vincennes Street.

The Chancellor of the 23-campus California State University has designated decisions related to the U.S. flag to the presidents of the individual CSU campuses. As a state institution, CSUN generally bases decisions to lower the U.S. flag at the Oviatt Library on directives and executive orders sent to federal and/or state agencies by either the President of the United States or the Governor of California. Decisions related to the CSUN institutional flag are generally based on directives from the Chancellor's Office.

Below is a list of pre-established dates on which the U.S. flag is customarily flown at half staff:
