About the University: 

California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) opened in 2002 as the newest campus in the California State University system. Since that time, the University has grown and developed into one of the premier public universities, not only in the California State University system, but also in the nation.  CSUCI enrolls approximately 6,437 students, including 226 graduate and post-baccalaureate students (Fall 2021).  Approximately 55% of CSUCI’s students are Pell Grant eligible, and approximately 62% are first-generation college students. CSUCI offers 26 undergraduate majors, seven graduate degrees, and a number of credential and certificate programs. Students have access to highly engaging curricular and co-curricular learning experiences, with outstanding faculty and staff, small class sizes, innovative applications of instructional technologies in their in-person, online, and hybrid classes, and other high-impact learning practices including service learning, undergraduate research, and study abroad opportunities in 20+ countries. CSUCI has earned national distinctions because of its faculty, work environment, community service, student/faculty research, and efforts to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. In 2021, CSUCI was ranked among the top 30 “Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs” for the seventh year in a row. The University has been recognized four times by The Chronicle of Higher Education as a “Great College to Work For.” U.S News & World Report recently ranked CSUCI 41st for Regional Universities West, overall – and at 20th for Top Public Schools in that category and 17th for Social Mobility. CSUCI achieved the designation of Hispanic Serving Institution in 2009. In 2019, CSUCI was the first CSU campus and one of only nine institutions in the nation to receive the inaugural Seal of Excelencia, a prestigious, voluntary, and comprehensive certification granted by the Washington, D.C.-based organization, Excelencia in Education.

In keeping with the mission of the CSU system, CSUCI simultaneously provides a student-centered, world- class education while offering access to many groups traditionally excluded from higher education. Student demographics as of Spring 2022 include the following: Female (65.6%), Male (34.3%), Non-binary (0.1%); First Generation (61%); Low Income (51.1%); Hispanic/Latino(a) (56.6%); White (23.9%); Asian American (6.2%); African American (1.9%); Native American/Alaskan (0.1%); Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (0.3%); two or more ethnicities (3.8%); with 3.5% of students not reporting ethnicity.

The University is also taking steps to confront racism and advocate for social justice. To this end, CSUCI encourages applicants who are motivated to serve and contribute to the university’s tenure-track body, which self-identifies as 62% White, 21% Latinx, 9% Asian/Asian American, and 2% Black/African American.

CSUCI sits at the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains and is located about 4 miles from Camarillo, 10 minutes away from the nearest beach and roughly 50 miles north of Los Angeles. As a regional campus in the CSU system, CSUCI serves all of Ventura County and the southern part of Santa Barbara County — a region that enjoys a rich mix of ethnic diversity. The local economy relies on six key industry sectors, including agriculture, manufacturing, construction, health services, professional/scientific/technical services, and leisure/hospitality.
