CSUN professor and associate vice president of graduate studies, research and international programs Mack Johnson died today after collapsing in his campus office.  A cause of death is not yet available.

Johnson announced his plans for retirement last month after 24 years with the university.

“When illness forced his retirement announcement last month, we noted his integral contributions to international programs at CSUN, his support for visiting faculty and his stalwart support of research by faculty and students alike,” said Interim President Harry Hellenbrand in an email to the campus community.  “Our condolences go to his wife and children.”

The conditions of Johnson illness are not known at this time, and it is unclear if his death is related to his condition.
