Healthy Matadors

Matador Employee Social Circles

The COVID-19 Pandemic and working remotely have helped us realize the immense socialization, networking, and connections that come naturally when working on campus. To bridge the current gap and strengthen our community as we prepare to return to campus, we're forming employee interest groups and social circles. 

Select the icon or title to view upcoming programming on that interest. Check back periodically as we develop more programming and engagement opportunities.

Join your colleagues as we chose a book of common interest and share our takeaways and thoughts.

The Book Club next meets on May 18th.  The book selectin will be released shortly.

CSUN POETRY COLLECTIVE

Join CSUN faculty and staff who meet once per month for a poetical break from our maddening world.  We spend an hour sharing our favorite pieces of poetry (both others and our own) and enjoying the company of colleagues from across campus.  Anyone is welcome to join, even if it’s just to listen.
