About The University Corporation

The University Corporation (TUC) is a nonprofit California corporation, which was chartered in 1958 to operate within the CSU system, but without state funds. TUC was organized to serve and assist the University by providing certain commercial services, including the CSUN Campus Store and CSUN Dining.

TUC coordinates community-oriented, noncredit workshops, conferences and institutes, and it fiscally administers federal, state, local and other grants to the university. The 17-member board of directors made up of students, faculty, administrators and community members is appointed by the University president and is responsible for establishing TUC policies. Five officers, who are elected annually by the board, comprise the executive committee, which manages TUC business affairs.
