CSUN-related expenditures totaled approx. $444.6 million during the 2013/2014 academic year, the most recent year available. These expenditures are for the operations of the university ($406.6 million), its auxiliaries (University Corporation, CSUN Foundation, Student Union, and Associated Students, for a total of $37.6 million), and the University Park Development Corporation ($0.3 million). Expenditures reflecting transfers (which do not generate multiplying economic effects) or capital outlays (included in capital expenditures below) were excluded.
Much of CSUN’s spending activity occurs locally, pushing a substantial amount of money into the surrounding economy: 81.5% of all university spending takes place within the Northridge community.
