Dean's Circle

The Dean's Circle for the College of Health and Human Development (HHD) brings together distinguished alumni and community partners to develop and explore the role of CSUN HHD in the community. Dean's Circle members are volunteers who represent HHD in the world and bring valuable perspectives and ideas to the Dean's Circle table. They may serve as fundraisers, advisors and advocates for HHD and CSUN.

Dean's Circle members are important to the mission of the college. In short, Health and Human Development professionals make life better for others through research, education and action. Students graduate to become competent and caring professionals who enhance and promote the health and well-being of the diverse communities CSUN serves.

Our alumni chapters and community advisory councils within our departments and academic programs also present volunteer opportunities. Some chapters include specialized advisory councils comprised of industry experts who may advise on curriculum for our many accredited programs.
