Our history reflects we were destined to be a campus of innovation. As the youngest of the 23 CSU campuses, CSUCI has an energy and vibrancy that’s felt everywhere on campus. From the start, we’ve offered integrative courses and programs that emphasize real-world experiences and service learning.


We may not be old but we value tradition, as evidenced by our commencement ceremony.


CSUCI received accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
