News, Events and Updates

Open Enrollment Period is September 21 through October 16, 2020

The health and well-being of our employees is important, and we encourage you to take advantage of Open Enrollment to ensure your benefits work for you. The CSU is committed to offering benefits and plan options to cover your individual and family health needs. Take advantage of this annual opportunity to review and update your current benefits for the upcoming year. You can enroll, change or cancel CalPERS health, dental, vision, Flex cash, Dependent Care Reimbursement (DCRA), Health Care Reimbursement (HCRA) or voluntary benefits plans.


In addition to the benefits information for Open Enrollment on CSYou, this year a new virtual solution has been created exclusively for our employees—providing additional access to benefits information during the pandemic. This new virtual solution will also host your campus LIVE Benefits Fair, which is scheduled for October 6, 2020 from 9am – 12pm.  At the LIVE event, you’ll be able to chat with providers and your campus HR team, and could even win prizes!

You must REGISTER to get access to this website, which will also hosts your campus Benefit Fair. So don’t delay, registration began on Tuesday, September 8.

Staff Appreciation Day September 18, 2020

The CSUDH community, along with the rest of the world, has gone through a lot this year. As a university, CSUDH had to transition to a remote environment without warning, and do so will continuing to preserve and protect our mission: providing a transformative educational experience to more than 17,000 students. Such a major shift could not have been accomplished without the staff at CSUDH.

Today, we celebrate you, and say “Thank You” for your hard work and dedication at this time.  In light of not being able to celebrate in person, we designate today as Staff Appreciation Day.

Thomas A. Parham, Ph.D.
