Titan Faculty and Staff Emergency Fund

The Titan Faculty and Staff Emergency Fund provides limited financial assistance for CSUF employees who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of a temporary hardship related to COVID-19.

These emergency relief funds are being set up to provide financial support for those who have been severely impacted by COVID-19 that could adversely affect them and their families as they serve the campus and our students.


For eligibility and application information, please visit the Titan Faculty and Staff Emergency Fund webpage on the HRDI website. If you are able, please join us in pledging your supportOpens in new window by making a charitable contribution to The Titan Faculty and Staff Emergency Fund.





One Book, One CSUF

Over 40,000 different stories comprise our CSUF community, making us one of the most diverse campuses in the country. To celebrate the power of our many stories, we are happy to launch our inaugural One Book, One CSUF program, a part of our Titans TogetherOpens in new window initiative. The One Book, One CSUF program will help to create an inclusive campus environment through conversations and engagement among all members of our community. Each year, members of the CSUF community choose a book that explores themes of diversity, inclusion, and equity. Throughout the year, students, faculty and staff will come together to share stories, invite dialogue, challenge perceptions, and build community. 


This year, CSUF chose The Book of the Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez, a story that interweaves hopes, dreams, guilt, and love—a book that offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be American. We are offering a free digital copy of the common read book to the first 10,000 Titans to take a quick engagement surveyOpens in new window . The survey is quick, and you get a FREE book!


ALL students, staff, faculty, and administrators are encouraged to participate in the One Book, One CSUF initiative. Readers will have plenty of opportunities to engage during the ‘20-’21 academic year, including numerous chances to receive free CSUF swag! In the meantime, kick back and enjoy the book over the summer.
