The Matador Involvement Center (MIC) is the place to learn more about getting involved on campus and meeting people. The MIC connects students to dynamic co-curricular programs that empower them to make the most of their college experience. The MIC offers resources including campus event guidance, involvement, advisement, leadership training, sport club support and new club development. The MIC—connecting, developing and celebrating our students.
Clubs and Organizations
Students can engage in around 250-plus clubs and organizations that represent a broad range of areas, including academic, athletic, community-oriented, cultural, political, religious and social. MataSync connects students to all of the different active clubs and organizations on campus. The goal of Clubs and Organizations is to foster community through collaboration and to build a sense of belonging among students. Clubs and Organizations also help student leaders access campus resources and gain skills to use in their future careers. R.E.D Academy is designed to provide current, active CSUN student leaders a co-curricular learning opportunity centered around self-reflection, community engagement and the demonstration of leadership learning outcomes. The mission of CHARGE Matadors is to educate and inform first-year students and leaders just beginning their journey through a self-paced online series of personal development workshops. The Clubs and Organizations Team wants Matadors to discover their shine and ultimately realize they are home here at CSUN.
Fraternity and Sorority Life
The MIC has more than 50 diverse fraternities and sororities, which are governed by five unique councils: the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Independent Greek Council (IGC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the Panhellenic Council (PHC), and the United Sorority and Fraternity Council (USFC). A fraternity or sorority can aid in student success by developing leadership skills, and fostering a sense of belonging. Fraternity and sorority students engage in high-impact programming meant to improve the overall college experience both socially and academically. As one of the largest student populations under the student-life umbrella, members are involved both in the campus community and in the community at large. Students who join fraternities and sororities at CSUN are taught the importance of active participation in community service projects. Furthermore, members will be exposed to career opportunities through interaction with fraternity and sorority alumni.
Unified We Serve—The Volunteer Program at CSUN
Students who are interested in giving to the community can do so with Unified We Serve, the campus volunteer program. Unified We Serve is a great avenue for students to begin the process of exploring community and volunteer opportunities. Through volunteerism, students can expand interests and goals, learn and develop skills and meet new people socially and professionally. The program’s mission is to unify students, faculty, staff and community members together to provide the greatest amount of resources to better serve the community. Unified We Serve believes that it is through connection and collaboration that positive and productive change can be generated in the community.
