BUILD PODER Institutional Core

The Institutional Development Core provides resources that provide sustainability (enduring into the future) and integration into California State University, Northridge's mission and priorities.

Through BUILD PODER, we have a new building, Lilac Hall, four new cluster hired faculty members, and we are preparing for the opening of a center dedicated to health equity and community partnered participatory research, after consulting with our campus and outside partners to ensure that our charter is in line with the needs of the institution as well as our foundation and skill set. In addition, through the leadership of the Institutional Development Core Program Director, Crist Khachikian, we have developed a "Faculty App" that provides a forum for faculty to publicly present their research interests, skills, and availability for collaboration with colleagues or research assistance with students.
