President Dianne F. Harrison Announces Retirement
Dear CSUN Community,
As we enter the final weeks of the semester, there is great momentum across campus in our collaborative work toward the success of our students. This strong trajectory on our top priority has given me comfort in sharing with you that after 44 years in higher education, I have made the decision to step away from the presidency of CSUN effective June 30, 2020. Chancellor Timothy P. White will be informing our CSU colleagues with a statement later today.
My husband John and I have tremendous appreciation for the incredible support you have shown to us, and the opportunity to serve the students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of CSUN since 2012, and the CSU since 2006. It has been an honor and privilege to lead our great institution for almost eight years. Read the complete message.
