As a group we are committed to our mission of providing excellent human resource programs and services to support the creation and maintenance of an outstanding teaching and learning environment where all people are valued. We fulfill this mission by creating partnerships with our campus colleagues to develop creative systems to attract, retain, develop and engage a diverse and talented group of staff, administrators and faculty.

As a University, we employ more than 4,000 faculty and staff, enroll over 40,000 students, and rank 10th in the nation in bachelor degrees awarded to underrepresented students.  While you read these pages you will see that this is a great place to work because of our genuine commitment to people as we incorporate a “culture of caring” into all that we do and in how we do it.

In our written material and in the people you interact with, you will see that we emphasize: personal competence, professionalism, personal engagement, creativity, personal accountability and the value of diversity in the workforce. If you have trouble finding the information you are looking for within these pages, please contact us or stop by University Hall, Room 165.

We invite you to learn, engage, and connect with your colleagues by taking advantage of the many training and development opportunities available through the 2019-2020 Professional & Personal Development Program

We've Transitioned to CSU Learn!

We are pleased to announce that CSUN, in partnership with the Chancellor's Office and all CSU campuses, has transitioned from the Skillport Learning Portal to CSU Learn! 

CSU Learn is a robust learning management tool that provides employees with access to required compliance training such as non-discrimination and information security awareness, as well as to more than 75,000 online courses, books, and videos, and registration for our campus professional development workshops.  To explore CSU Learn, log into the myNorthridgePortal and select CSU Learn in the Training/Professional Dev pagelet. Implementation of new technology can sometimes bring unexpected challenges and we ask for flexibility and understanding while we work together through issues if and when they surface.  If you have any questions or encounter any difficulties with CSU Learn, please contact Human Resources at
