Introduction to CI



California State University Channel Islands History

Located only minutes from the Pacific Ocean at the northern end of the Santa Monica Mountains, CSU Channel Islands is truly breathtaking. The entrance to the campus winds alongside lush agricultural fields, orchards, and picturesque foothills. Equally compelling is the campus architecture. Built in the early part of the twentieth century, the sprawling 1930’s Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival buildings house a state-of-the-art, 21st century university.

Planning for a public, four-year university began in 1965 when State Senator Robert J. Lagomarsino co-authored Senate Bill 288 with Assemblyman Burt Hansen, calling for establishment of a four year college in Ventura County. Later that year, Governor Pat Brown signed a bill authorizing a study for a state college in Ventura County. In 1974, Dr. Joyce Kennedy established in Ventura the UC/CSU Ventura Learning Center and went on to serve as director of the CSUN Ventura Campus for more than 15 years.

In 1996, J. Handel Evans began as Planning President charged with beginning development of a public, four-year university in the region. In September 1997, on the recommendation of the chancellor and a community task force appointed by the Governor, the CSU Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept the former Camarillo State Hospital site for the purpose of transforming it into the CSU’s 23rd campus. In July 1996, the CSU Board of Trustees formally adopted the name Channel Islands for the new University. In September 1997, Governor Wilson signed into law S.B. 623 (O’Connell) providing for the financing and support of the transition of the site for use as a university campus. Shortly thereafter, the state legislature and the CSU Board of Trustees provided funds to begin the conversion of the facility from a state hospital into a college campus. In 1999, the Ventura Campus moved to the Channel Islands campus and began a four-year phase out of its academic programs.

The CSU Board of Trustees appointed Richard R. Rush Founding President of CSU Channel Islands and he assumed his duties in June 2001. Dr. Rush’s formal inauguration was held in April 2002. During the course of establishing the initial structures of the University, Dr. Rush has overseen and been directly involved in the hiring of faculty and the University’s senior staff. In addition, he has directed the development of the University’s strategic, academic and physical master plans, infrastructure and road improvements, the acquisition of adjacent land, as well as successfully leading the University’s efforts to achieve initial accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

The formal opening of the University was held on August 16, 2002. The public ceremony included participation by Governor Gray Davis, as well as educational and community leaders from throughout the state. Classes began on August 24 with approximately 500 transfer students enrolled for the first year. The first freshmen class arrived in fall 2003.

To accommodate the rapidly growing numbers of students, in 2004 the University completed the first phase of student housing, Anacapa Village, which provides on campus housing for 350 students. Phase two housing, Santa Cruz Village, opened in August 2007 providing space for an additional 460 students.

The physical campus continues to grow at a steady pace to keep up with student and academic needs. The first major University construction project on the campus was the Science Building completed in 2003. This structure provides much needed lab and auditorium space for students. The prestigious John Spoor Broome Library designed by world-renowned architect, Foster+Partners, opened in spring 2008 and provides a state-of-the-art teaching and learning library for students, faculty, staff, and the community. The Martin V. Smith Center for Integrative Decision-Making opened in spring 2009 and includes a case-study classroom equipped with advanced audio/visual equipment to show in real-time the indices of the major world financial markets. A new Student Union was completed in spring 2010 that provides a large programmable area for student events and live entertainment; a dining center including a coffee house, pizzeria, sandwich deli and salad bar; lounges for informal gatherings; a game room with HD TVs, pool tables, and computer gaming systems; and ASI offices for Student Government, Student Programming Board, The Nautical Yearbook, and the CI View campus newspaper.

CSU Channel Islands is a student-centered University, committed to academic excellence, civic engagement, environmental responsibility, and leadership for the 21st century.

Accreditation

CI is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, #100, Alameda, CA 94501, (510) 748-9001. CI was granted initial accreditation for seven years effective May 19, 2007

University Colors

The University’s colors are red and silver. The red is consistent with the tradition of the region, including the lush fields of strawberries that are a part of the diverse agricultural region, and the silver is for the dolphin, the University’s mascot.

University Mascot

A petition was presented in 1998 to the University by local Chumash leaders that the dolphin be the University’s official mascot. Simultaneously, the founding student leadership of CSUN–CI petitioned to have the dolphin as CI’s mascot. The request was warmly received by the students, faculty, and staff. The sacred story of why the Chumash cherish the dolphin can be found on the University’s Web site.

SAFE on Campus

SAFE (Students, Administrators, and Faculty for Equality) on Campus is a program sponsored by the Center for Multicultural Engagement.

Mission. The SAFE on Campus program seeks to reduce homophobia and heterosexism at CI. Through education, advocacy, and promoting awareness, the program contributes to building a campus climate that is safe and accepting of all members of the University community.

Purpose. SAFE on Campus provides an avenue through which all members of the campus community can actively show their support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning people. SAFE on Campus members identify themselves by displaying the SAFE on Campus sign at their office. Members attend at least one workshop, after which they receive the SAFE on Campus logo. By displaying the logo, members signal to students and employees that they can be “out” or safely discuss their sexual orientation or gender identity. In addition, members can serve as a valuable source to help locate resources on campus, or help report harassment or discrimination.

Definition of an Ally. Someone who, regardless of their gender identity and/or sexual orientation, is supportive of LGBTIQ people and who wants to foster a campus climate that is safe for everyone.

For additional information regarding SAFE on Campus, please contact Julia Balén, Associate Professor, English and Faculty Director of the Center for Multicultural Engagement (805) 437-8435.

The federal Military Selective Service Act (the “Act”) requires most males residing in the United States to present themselves for registration with the Selective Service System within thirty days of their eighteenth birthday. Most males between the ages of 18 and 25 must be registered. Males born after December 31, 1959, may be required to submit a statement of compliance with the Act and regulations in order to receive any grant, loan, or work assistance under specified provisions of existing federal law. In California, students subject to the Act who fail to register are also ineligible to receive any need-based student grants funded by the state or a public postsecondary institution.

Selective Service registration forms are available at any U.S. Post Office, and many high schools have a staff member or teacher appointed as a Selective Service Registrar. Applicants for financial aid can also request that information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) be used to register them with the Selective Service.
