Placing the students at the center of our educational experience, California State University Channel Islands' Student Government seeks to effectively communicate, create and maintain community, as well as provide and support co-curricular learning. As we represent the University and our student body, we will hold ourselves to the highest standards by leading with integrity and selflessly serving the students and the University on a local, state, and nationwide level
Student Programming Board (SPB) provides an abundance of opportunities by providing a social outlet for students, helping students learn how to plan and coordinate events, and working with local businesses and organizations.
The Nautical yearbook is a collaborative student project that incorporates many different parts of campus. The Nautical is a student run publication that captures the ever changing and growing CI community. It is student run, student designed, and student approved.
The CI View serves to keep Cal State Channel Islands students updated on the news and happenings of a growing and dynamic university. We do our best to inform students about the new majors, buildings, programs and departments that seem be developing each and every day. In addition, we are dedicated to bringing local and community news to the CI campus. We also provide students with a forum to voice their own opinions, own ideas, and own suggestions to keep CI a university that maintains a student-based focus.
