CSUN Gets $80,000 to Set Up Middle School Computer Lab

May 20, 2000

NORTHRIDGE — Cal State Northridge received an $80,000 grant to establish a computer laboratory and related classes for students at a San Fernando charter middle school.

The university, which has created the community-campus partnership, was one of only 20 institutions that received the two-year grant. The money came from WorldCom and Brown University, sponsors of the $5 million "Making a Civic Investment" program aimed at benefiting thousands of schoolchildren over the next five years.

The funded project will give 300 sixth- and seventh-graders at the Community Charter Middle School and their families basic computer and Internet skills. Over the course of the first year, about 60 CSUN minority students will teach the classes.

The center was established in 1998 to encourage and support CSUN students and faculty involved in community service.
