Read the Road Ahead summary of strategic directions and priorities.
Road Map to the Future is a strategy for the university based on the themes and feedback that emerged from President Beck’s 100-day listening tour.
Charged by President Beck to build consensus around the vision of an equitable and just future for CSUN, the Road Map to the Future Steering Committee undertook a three-phase, inclusive process led by Provost Walker to determine campus priorities and frame big ideas. Comprised of students, faculty, staff, and administrators, the Steering Committee was integral to the effort, and CSUN is grateful for the tireless dedication of these individuals. More than 40 Focused Conversations and small group listening sessions took place throughout February, March and April of 2022, and applying an equity lens, the Steering Committee found common ground to identify priorities that build on existing achievements at CSUN, fostering justice and belonging throughout the university. Nearly 450 faculty, staff, students and alumni participated in meetings and discussions, and 467 surveys were completed. Thank you for this overwhelming support and input that has informed the Road Map plan aimed at taking CSUN to the next level and transforming our future.
President Beck charged the CSUN community to approach the next chapter of the university’s illustrious history with energy and creativity, unified by a sense of aspirational growth, forward-thinking development and a focus on equity and inclusion.
