The purpose of the Vice President’s office is to provide vision, leadership, and strategic direction to areas, programs, and personnel within the Division of Student Affairs, which includes Assessment & Strategic Operations, Associated Students Incorporated, Housing & Residential Education, Student Life, and Wellness & Athletics.

Assessment & Strategic Operations

The area of Assessment and Strategic Operations (ASO) was established as part of an organizational initiative in the Division of Student Affairs effective January 2014.

The ASO area:

  • produces and distributes internal and external communication materials;
  • hires, trains, and provides staff development; and
  • provides co-curricular education initiatives.

Associated Students Incorporated

All currently registered students are members of Associated Students Incorporated (ASI) and pay both an associated student fee and a student body center fee as part of their registration fees. ASI is a non-profit corporation which has a Board of Directors that oversees the allocation of the ASI student fees, funds a professional and student staff to manage the Student Union, and creates opportunities for leadership development.

ASI has four 'entities' which include Student Government (SG), Student Programming Board (SPB), the CI View student newspaper, and The Nautical yearbook. The SG President, SPB President, CI View Editor-in-Chief and The Nautical Editor-in-Chief serve on the ASI Board of Directors along with five additional students, one faculty member, three University administrators, and one community member. The ASI Board meets the first Thursday of every month in the Student Union Coville Conference Room.

Housing & Residential Education

CSU Channel Islands is a very special place – and you get the very best of what our campus has to offer when you live right in the center of it all in Anacapa or Santa Cruz Village, or the University Glen Town Center! Additional accommodations are also available at Pickwick Park in the city of Camarillo.

Not only does on-campus living provide very comfortable living spaces, each Village also offers a wide array of study, gathering and recreational areas to fully support students' living and learning experience. In addition to some of the best facilities available, we offer a complete program with trained staff to support student success and full engagement in the CI educational experience. Additionally, all residents participate in the residential dining plan, which allows for students to enjoy meals at Islands Café or use their "flex cash" to dine at any of the other eateries on campus.

Santa Cruz Village

Santa Cruz Village (SCV) opened in fall 2007 and is home to more than 600 freshmen. SCV is comprised of two-bedroom, one-bathroom, furnished semi-suites shared by four to six students.
