CSUN Alumni Relations Award


Sponsored by the CSUN Alumni Association, the Alumni Relations Award is presented to a staff member, faculty, or administrator whose efforts bring alumni closer to their alma mater. The recipient embodies what it means to be a loyal Matador.

The award recognizes employees whose exceptional programmatic and organizational efforts lead to greater alumni connectedness to CSUN or to a division, college, department, institute, program or alumni chapter. The successful honoree may have also demonstrated creativity, purposefulness and commitment to improving the inter-connectedness between alumni or alumni constituencies.

Through the CSUN Alumni Relations Award, the CSUN Alumni Association expresses its pride and appreciation to an individual who does the important work of building alumni relationships. It focuses attention on outstanding persons and their accomplishments, but also on the vital relationship between staff and alumni in promoting the best interests of the University.


Nominations should provide specific examples of how the nominee has achieved the following:

  1. Beyond the normal scope of their work duties, developed initiatives and programs or contributed to the improvement of existing processes, which encouraged greater alumni connection to CSUN or to a division, college, department, institute, program or alumni chapter.

  2. Developed successful collaborative relationships with alumni that resulted in progress towards achievement of University goals and objectives.

  3. Commitment to living the values of the university, volunteerism, and service to the University.


Recipients will be a regular full- or part-time staff member, faculty, or administrator of the university with a minimum of one year of service. The recipient need not be an alumna or alumnus of the University.


Alumni Relations Award recipients will receive a $300 cash award from the Alumni Association and a commemorative award. They will be honored at the annual Staff Services and Recognition of Excellence event.
