Student organizations must design and implement programs, events and activities which support and enrich the goals of CI’s educational mission. Involvement in student organizations presents students with the opportunity to broaden their learning, obtain leadership and interpersonal skills, and develop a commitment to service. Student participation in clubs/organizations attracts new students to our campus and integrates them into our CI culture and traditions. Student clubs/organizations strengthen campus-community relations, improve inter-institutional communications, and facilitate students’ acquisition of skills.

CSU Minimum Qualifications for Student Office Holders - AA-2012-05 

Given the representative, fiduciary, legal, and other long-range policy-making responsibilities and influence of student office holders, it is the policy of the California State University (CSU) that student office holders and systemwide committee appointments have an obligation to demonstrate academic involvement, achievement, and progress.

All student representatives, candidates, and incumbents for major and minor office positions must be matriculated at a CSU campus maintaining a minimum on-campus 2.0 term grade point average (GPA), are in good standing, and must not be on academic, disciplinary or administrative probation. This requirement applies to the major student government offices defined below, minor student representative offices as defined by the campus, and student representatives to systemwide committees.

These requirements are minimum qualifications. The campus president or designee is authorized to increase the minimum qualifications and establish additional requirements as determined by the campus. Student organizations should review the CSU Minimum Qualifications for Student Office Holders located online at http://www.calstate.edu/AcadAff/codedMemos/AA-2012-05-attachment.pdf
