The primary function of the LGBTQIA+ Advisory Committee is to serve in an advisory capacity to the University through the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students on matters pertaining to the effective delivery of programs and services to the LGBTQIA+ community at California State University, Northridge.

For more information on who is on the committee, please visit the About Us page.

While supporting our students is California State University Northridge’s number one priority, the LGBTQIA+ Advisory Committee understood that there needed to be better access to resources for not just current students, but faculty/staff, prospective students, and allies.

This website offers a wider range of resources and information that is helpful to a broader scope of the LGBTQIA+ Community at CSUN. This site works closely with the Pride Center to provide the most up-to-date and helpful information so that you have the best experience at CSUN possible!

You can connect to the Pride Center by visiting their department at the University Student Union (USU) located on the second floor of the USU Sol Center.

Find them on social media via the Pride Center Instagram, and Pride Center Facebook!


The Office of Equity and Compliance works hard to make sure that current students as well as faculty/staff feel supported in their work and educational environment.

Students can now update their Preferred Name and Pronouns in PeopleSoft.

Learn how to update your personal information

Without realizing it, we use pronouns all the time. We use these pronouns in speech and writing to take the place of people’s name and many other proper nouns. Often, when speaking of someone in the third person, these pronouns have a gender implied (think he/she).

These associations with gender are where our language can become triggering or divisive for folks whose gender expression doesn’t match their gender identity. Using someone's correct pronouns is one of the simplest ways to show your respect for their identity.
