I am pleased to welcome you to our Community Partner Guide to Service-Learning and Volunteerism at California State University, Northridge. As I stated in my Annual Convocation message this year, we at Cal State Northridge are very proud of our mission, which is to serve the higher educational needs of this region.

Our academic and student service programs help to grow our region’s intellectual capital by providing classes and activities that prepare an educated workforce. We emphasize programs that place our students in the community to learn and then to serve which positions us as a major force in meeting our region’s human needs. In education, social services, health-related fields, science, technology, arts, and culture, Cal State Northridge graduates, faculty, and students make life better for the people of this region.
