Dear Students:

Welcome to the 2006/2007 academic year at California State University Channel Islands.

You don't need to look far to see that you have enrolled in a thriving, exciting, growing University. What may first strike you, when you arrive on campus, is the impressive growth of the physical campus itself. In one direction, work is well underway on the John Spoor Broome Library. At the other end of campus, ground has been broken for the second phase of student housing. And we are continually working on projects such as the renovation of additional classroom space.

While we are extremely grateful that we have been able to embark on all of these striking architectural ventures, it is the rapid growth in our offering of academic programs, coupled with the steadily increasing numbers of enrolled students that mean the most to us.

Thanks to tireless work on the part of our faculty, staff, and administrators, we are continuing our focus to provide and encourage interdisciplinary learning while planning to add vital programs such as nursing, communication, and Chicano/a Studies.

As more and more students are learning about all that is now available here, CSUCI is quickly becoming a destination college for the men and women of this region and beyond.

At Cal State University Channel Islands we are committed to providing you with the tools, environment, and learning experiences that truly will Open Doors to the World for your future.

Sincerely yours, 

Richard R. Rush
