The CSUN Alumni Association’s mission is to create opportunities and manage platforms to ensure that current and future alumni (students) are more connected to, supportive of and interactive with the University and are more connected to, interactive with and supportive of one another.
The primary focus of the Alumni Association is to build and sustain valued relationships. Operating in tandem with the Office of Alumni Relations, the Association serves as a conduit to connect, involve and engage alumni according to individual interests, as well as their specific academic, social and organizational affiliations and commonalties. Alumni and students benefit from the individual and collective expertise and talents of a vast and diverse alumni constituency of more than 300,000. The institution is the beneficiary of greater intellectual, relational, social and economic capital.
The Alumni Association honors and showcases successful and influential alumni and recognizes loyal alumni and other volunteers. It provides scholarships, sponsors cultural and Matador fan programs, presents mentor and career advisement programs, and welcomes successful alumni to classrooms to share real-world experiences. Annual and lifetime memberships are available to alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents and friends. Members receive valued services, discounts and other opportunities.
The Alumni Association is dually defined as both a social and organizational entity. Socially, it is the singular common association of all those who have earned degrees from the University. It additionally welcomes other former attendees and loyal supporters who have chosen to affiliate with CSUN and each other by belonging to the Association. As a campus organization, the Alumni Association Board of Directors provides leadership and advisement to the University and establishes programs to meet alumni needs and to address matters of alumni interest and concern.
The Alumni Association Board of Directors is governed by its executive council. The 2015-16 officers of the Association are president Carlos Fuentes, and officers Wayne Adelstein, Ken Melcombe, Maria Ramos, Dennis DeYoung and Francine Oschin.
