Clubs and Organizations

The CSUN Clubs & Organizations Program exists to guide students in the creation of a space for inclusion and growth by helping student leaders access campus resources, acquire skills to use in their future careers, and reflect on their accomplishments inspiring personal marketability. We do this by fostering community through organizational collaboration and hands-on organizational management experience. We want our matadors to discover their shine and ultimately, realize they are home here at CSUN!
