Faculty and Staff

The health and safety of the CSUN community is of paramount importance. We advise that you refrain from coming on campus for non-essential matters and to connect with us online or by phone. If you must come to campus, please review the campus employee safety protocols and complete this Employee Screening Survey before each visit.

As part of CSUN’s community of talented and innovative faculty and staff, you are the pillars of tireless dedication leading the Matador community during unprecedented times.

In addition to resources throughout this site, information specific to faculty and staff can be found below.

The following leave options are available to employees. Due to the distinct options available, for any time off related to COVID-19, managers and employees should reach out to contact Karyn Cote, Leave of Absence Specialist, at Karyn.Cote@csun.edu to consult on which leave type they qualify for and to obtain the appropriate leave form.
