CSUN Navigators | Staff & Faculty Assisting New Students

CSUN Navigators are staff and faculty that typically welcome our students during the first days of a new semester, answering questions and helping students find their way (navigate) to classes and other locations. 

Now in its ninth year, the CSUN Navigators program is returning and partnering with the Matadors Forward Ambassadors to welcome our students to campus!  With the expectation of a large number of new and returning students coming to campus for the first time, we will need a lot of volunteers to assist us with this well received program. Even if you know very little about the campus, we will give you all the tools you need to be a great Navigator. This is a great opportunity to interface with our students and a good time to meet and spend some time with colleagues!

Whether you are new to the program or coming back around to volunteer again, all CSUN Navigators will be provided with brief, self-paced, electronic training material with important updates and guidance, along with information on how to sign-up for a volunteering opportunity..

Volunteer opportunities will be available from Feb. 14 to 25. The 1 hour 15 minute shifts will fall between 7:45 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. from Monday to Thursday and between 7:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. on Friday

You can view some photos of past events in the gallery below.

The president and vice presidents support the CSUN Navigator program, and have asked campus supervisors to adjust schedules whenever possible for participating employees to go through the training and to assist our students on the first days of their return to on-camps learning.

We know our students will appreciate your efforts. Go Matadors!
