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. Indeed, U.S. News &
World Report listed CSUCI as 12th among "Top Public Universities in
the West" in the current edition of Best Colleges Rankings. In
2020, CollegeNET also ranked CSUCI 20th out of over 1,449 schools
in its "Social Mobility Index," and Money Magazine rated CSUCI as
the 15th "Most Transformative College" in the nation.
CSUCI is a public comprehensive university that engages students in
critical inquiry and is dedicated to educating leaders for a global
society. The University is located in Ventura County and is home to
more than 5,470 undergraduate and 170 graduate students.
Approximately 55% of CSUCI's students are Pell Grant eligible, and

(HSI), with 55% of its undergraduate students self-identifying as
Hispanic/Latinx, 25% as White, 6% as Asian/Asian American, 4% as
multiracial, and 2% as Black/African American. In 2019, CSUCI was
awarded Excelencia in Education's inaugural "Seal of Excelencia"
for its facilitation of Latinx student success. Also, in 2022, CI
became the first college to earn the Seal of Excelencia
CSUCI is committed to diversifying its faculty in order to address
students' ever-changing needs in the 21st century. The University

justice. To this end, CSUCI encourages applicants who are motivated
to serve and contribute to the university's tenure-track body,

Asian/Asian American, and 2% Black/African American.
