Campus: CSU Northridge -- October 07, 2002

Target, Mervyn's Give $10,000 to CSUN's Career Center

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."
