CSUN is fully committed to advancing faculty diversity, and faculty searches will benefit tremendously from these new resources and processes.  More information will be forthcoming as available.

 Road Map to the Future  (updated December 2021)

The 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. The Steering Committee of the Road Map meets regularly and subgroups have been formed to address themes of the President's listening tour. Town Hall meetings about the Road Map process are scheduled on December 8th and 9th.  For details on the Steering Committee, Road Map process and to read the Presidential Charge, please see
