CSUN Engage

A Commitment to Faculty and Staff Success

Because of our University’s commitment to education, inquiry, curiosity, and life-long learning, the CSUN Engage program has been created as a means of investing in our faculty and staff and providing opportunities for members of our community to learn how our University works and people are interconnected.

CSUN Engage is a high-level, immersive, and behind-the-scenes culture initiative with the objectives to:

  • cultivate and strengthen relationships between Divisions;
  • provide Cohort members with a broad perspective of CSUN and how the Divisions are interconnected; and
  • illustrate how each area supports the University Mission.

Selection Process


Cohorts will be comprised of university colleagues, including tenure-track and tenured faculty, full-time lecturers, staff, and administrators. With the support of their supervisor and Divisional Vice President, candidates will apply through an online application process. This is a voluntary program and no additional compensation will be provided to selected participants. To ensure a robust experience that includes varying viewpoints and professional experiences, every Cohort will include members from each Division within the University.
