The primary focus of the Alumni Association is to build and sustain valued relationships. 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 commonalities. Alumni and students benefit from the individual and collective expertise and talents of a vast and diverse alumni constituency of more than 350,000. The institution is the beneficiary of greater intellectual, relational, reputational and economic capital.

The Alumni Association honors and showcases distinguished and influential alumni and recognizes loyal alumni and other volunteers who serve the institution annually. It provides student scholarships; sponsors networking, engagement and cultural programs; hosts mentoring and career support programs; and welcomes successful alumni to campus 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. It additionally welcomes other loyal supporters who have chosen to affiliate with CSUN and one another by belonging to the Association. The Alumni Association Board of Directors provides volunteer leadership and advisement to the University and establishes programs to meet alumni needs and to address matters of alumni interest and concern.
