Centers

Through our centers, we work in close partnership with the community to address mutually-identified needs and priorities. The programs and services we offer support the community, and enrich our students' professional skills and competencies. The centers also vitalize the professional experience of our community partners and the CSUN community and encourage involvement.

Half an hour north of campus is the Aquatic Center at Castaic Lake, in the foothills of the Santa Clarita Valley.

This award winning Boating and Instructional Safety Center is recognized locally and nationally for its excellence in boating and water safety education.  Serving nearly 11,000 people a year through credit, non-credit and community service programs and activities, the Center offers water skiing, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, personal watercraft, fishing, nature walks, snorkeling and scuba diving.  For more information on the Center, visit the webpage within the site for the Department of Recreation and Tourism Management.

The Center of Achievement provides adapted therapeutic exercise programs for people with moderate to severe disabilities in land-based fitness programs using a wide range of specialized equipment.  Fitness programs are also available in the water - free of gravity - in four treatment-specific pools, through the Abbott and Linda Brown Western Center for Adaptive Aquatic Therapy within the Center of Achievement. 

For over 45 years, the Center has provided compassionate service to the community while training CSUN students as professionals in adapted exercise and fitness programs. Clients say the Center brings fitness, hope and most of all, achievement. Clients, families and caregivers alike tell us they find comfort, social connection and friendship here.   Visit the website for the Center.

Accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood for maintaining, the Center holds the highest standards in early childhood education and by the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.

It is a high quality instructional site where CSUN students learn teaching skills under the mentorship of master teachers and faculty as they interact with children of the community and get to know families.

Outreach efforts include programs assisting youth and their families, parenting newsletters, parenting classes, and presentations to community groups. Visit the website for the Child and Family Studies Center.

The Consumer Resource Center provides more than assistance with the business of management. Students working at the Center take a caring approach. They can help visitors find information about banking, investing, financial planning, how to file taxes and even avoid identity theft.

The Center also helps visitors resolve consumer issues and find quality information about how to get further help. Go to the Consumer Resource Center website.

The Center has provided diagnostic and therapeutic services to children and adults with communication disorders since 1960.  

Today, the Center averages over 12,000 patient visits per year, serving all ages from infancy through the lifespan, providing comprehensive evaluations for people whose ability to speak, hear or share feelings is compromised.

Upper division baccalaureate and master’s level students train to become professional speech/language or hearing specialists under the direct supervision of licensed faculty. Visit the page for the Language Speech and Hearing Center within the website for the Department of Communication Disorders and Sciences.

The Center collaborates with local schools, parks and recreation centers to organize educational events that bring together children,  families and CSUN faculty and student specialists for fun, recreation and play. Groups explore the nature of play and its effect on lifestyle, health and interpersonal dynamics. Learning techniques strengthen caring, communication, problem solving and negotiation.

This center is within the Department of Recreation and Tourism Management. For more information contact the department at 818-677-3202.

Through research and evaluation technologies for food quality assessment, the Marilyn Magaram Center for Food Science, Nutrition and Dietetics has performed community service while educating future professionals since 1991. Students also study the effects of biological and chemical treatments on foods. Outreach projects include visits to low-income communities to share money-saving shopping tips and show families how to make nutritious and inexpensive meals.

The Center supports research, community service, and education in Physical Therapy.

The faculty practice offers services in specialty areas in bone densitometry, geriatric rehabilitation, computerized motion analysis, kinesiological electromyography, gait analysis, orthopedics, pediatric examination and treatment, developmental assessment, and balance and vestibular rehabilitation. For information on the Center and projects, contact the Department of Physical Therapy via their website.
