Campus: CSU Northridge -- October 07, 2002
Target, Mervyn's Give $10,000 to CSUN's Career
Target and Mervyn's have given Cal State Northridge's Career Center
a total of $10,000 to help support student job opportunities.
A small portion of the money will go to three student business groups
to support their efforts to encourage a diverse group of students to
consider business careers. The Latino Business Association, the Black
Business Association and Management Information System Association will
each receive $250.
"We are honored by the generosity of both Target and Mervyn's,"
said Adele Scheele, director of CSUN's Career Center. "Their money
is going to support students who normally don't get a lot of help. Plus,
it gives them an opportunity to make contact with students they hope
to someday recruit into their organizations."
Target and Mervyn's each gave the campus $5,000.
This is the second year that Target has given money to CSUN's Career
Center. Last year, the company gave the center $10,000 to support its
efforts to help Northridge students develop career goals and find jobs
while in school and after they graduate.
California State University, Northridge has more than 32,500 full- and
part-time students and offers 59 bachelor's and 41 master's degrees
as well as 28 education credential programs. Founded in 1958, it is
the only four-year university in the San Fernando Valley and the third
largest in the 23-campus CSU system. The Western Association of Schools
and Colleges recently said CSUN "stands as a model to other public
urban institutions of higher education."
