California State University, Northridge has more than 600 volunteer leaders in over 20 major volunteer boards and advisory committees engaged in advancing the university's mission, by reaching out to its external stakeholders—alumni, parents, business and civic leaders and the community at large—and by providing advice to help CSUN's programs remain effective, relevant and adequately supported to meet the challenges of the region we serve today and in the years to come.
The purpose of this site is to provide both a guide to CSUN's volunteer leadership structure and a resource to the university's volunteer leadership.
