Clubs and Organizations

Please fill out the Summer 2021 Contact form for Clubs and Organizations.

The CSUN Clubs & Organizations Program exists to guide students in the creation of a space for inclusion and growth by helping student leaders access campus resources, acquire skills to use in their future careers, and reflect on their accomplishments inspiring personal marketability. We do this by fostering community through organizational collaboration and hands-on organizational management experience. We want our matadors to discover their shine and ultimately, realize they are home here at CSUN!

COVID-19 CSUN Clubs & Orgs Survey

Clubs and organizations would like to hear from you to see how you are doing under the current circumstances and how we can better support you. Please make sure you are logged into your CSUN e-mail account when you fill out COVID-19 CSUN Clubs & Orgs Survey, as personal e-mail accounts will not have access to it. Thank you for your time!

VUCA Workshop Series
We have created a series of virtual workshops to assist students in leading their student organizations through a variety of changing environments. We have heard from students that they are unsure how to maintain the work of their student organization under our current off-campus status. We want to help them maximize the learning that exists under these unique circumstances. To do this, we have adopted a concept from the Army War College called VUCA. This concept has been tailored to our student organizations, and I hope it is useful.

Volatility: Times when things change quickly without much warning or prediction.
Uncertainty: Times when there is a frequent disruption with very little information and not much direction.
Complexity: Times when you realize multiple factors are influencing your complicated situation, and not all elements are known or understood.
Ambiguity: Times when events can be interpreted in many ways, and past experiences do not help to explain the current situation.
