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 20th among “Top Public Schools” in its 2021 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 6,900 undergraduate and 239 graduate students. Approximately 55%
of CSUCI’s students are Pell Grant eligible, and approximately 62% are
first-generation college students. CSUCI is also proud to be designated
as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), with 55% of its undergraduate
students self-identifying as 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.
CSUCI is committed to diversifying its faculty in order to address
students’ ever-changing needs in the 21st century. The University is
also taking steps to confront racism and to advocate for social justice.
To this end, CSUCI encourages applicants to apply 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 is committed to recruiting individuals who are dedicated to
furthering inclusive excellence in our campus community. We seek to
enhance our diverse University population by welcoming people from all
backgrounds, and by working to sustain an environment where colleagues
can not only work and learn, but also create and thrive.
