“An authentic and compelling brand, animated by creative design and intelligent storytelling, adds value to a CSUN degree and amplifies the great work of faculty and staff across campus,” said Robert Gunsalus, vice president for University Advancement and president of the CSUN Foundation. “These awards are a strong affirmation of Associate Vice President for Marketing and Communications Jeff Noblitt and the entire marketing and communications team, but it is this positive, mission-centered impact that is most gratifying.”
