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.

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
