Officials at California State University, Northridge have awarded more than $500,000 in grants to 14 campus projects that promote diversity, equity and inclusion.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are central to CSUN’s mission to enable students to realize their educational goals and to promote their welfare and intellectual progress.
“To that end, we established the Diversity and Equity Innovation Grant to make funding available to support campus projects aimed at increasing the presence and participation of traditionally underserved and underrepresented groups,” Harrison continued.
“It’s one thing to say that a campus is addressing issues like diversity, equity and inclusion, racism and social justice, but it takes more than words to truly see progress,” said Natalie Mason-Kinsey, CSUN’s chief diversity officer.
The mentors will ensure the high school and community college students know what they need to get into CSUN, and provide those same students support once they are CSUN students.
