The COR Program at California State University Northridge (CSUN) is sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) for the purpose of facilitating participation of under represented students of color in the area of mental health research. The aims of this program are to assist students of color during their undergraduate studies and to prepare them to attend doctoral programs in the social sciences. The California Endowment augmented our COR program with 4 additional student slots. COR students will now have the opportunity to work with community mental health agencies to manage their quantitative and qualitative data so that they can write grants and conduct program review.

COR students participate in rigorous coursework and focused research during their two-year appointment to the COR program. They also engage in a number of unique enrichment experiences that aid them in focusing their future academic and professional goals. Mentoring and financial support are offered to COR students throughout their last two years of undergraduate studies for the purpose of helping them to gain entrance into mental health related doctoral programs.
