The Religious Studies Club is Recruiting Board Members for Spring '17!

November 22, 2016

The Religious Studies Club is currently recruiting board member positions!  We are looking for exceptional candidates who are passionate about Religious Studies education and spreading awareness about our department across campus! 

The Religious Studies Club is a university recognized club established in May, 2016.  Our objectives are to create a campus environment that welcomes intellectual discussion surrounding religion.  During the Fall '16 semester, the Religious Studies Club and the Department of Religious Studies collaborated with Associated Students to host a pre-screening of National Geographic's film "Before the Flood."  We work alongside our other departments within the College of Humanities, including the Native American Studies program.  Our board welcomes diversity of religious faiths and traditions. 

The Religious Studies Club has made donations to Associated Students in order to provide for students on campus who experience food insecurity.  Our focus is to bring back to the community, either through proactive measures in the local community, or by discussing important political implications of religious thought.  This election, two of our board members were interviewed by the Sundial to understand our diverse thoughts and opinions on the Presidential election.  We have taken a very active, public role in student life here on campus and hope to bring awareness towards acceptance of religious diversity in an increasingly polarized society.

As the semester comes to an end, we will need to replace a  few board members who will be graduating.  We are currently seeking applicants for President, Vice President, Secretary, Officer of Media and Productions, and Officer of Event Planning.  The basic requirements are that you must maintain a 2.0 GPA or above to hold a board position.  You do not need to major or minor in Religious Studies, however, Religious Studies applicants are preferred.  You will work alongside faculty and other student organizations on campus and will develop public speaking skills, enriching your experience at CSUN and preparing you for either graduate school or a career.  Other duties include spreading awareness about the major and minor options in RS100 classes.  You will have access to information regarding undergraduate research in the department.

If you are interested in joining and serving as a board member of the Religious Studies Club, please submit either a resume or a short e-mail stating your reasons for wanting to serve on the board to
