Tree Campus USA

For the 6th year in a row, CSU Channel Islands has been awarded "Tree Campus USA Recognition". This means CI has met the 5 standards needed for the award. In order to achieve this, CI planted trees around campus and in the restoration site with the hard work of Facilities Services and students who volunteered. There is also a continuous plan to maintain the trees as well as plant more.

Carbon Commitment

Carbon Commitment

In April 2015, President Rush signed a Carbon Commitment.  The purpose of this action is an acknowledgement of deep concern about unprecedented climate change and a promise to take steps to reduce greenhouse gases and achieve a more stable climate. Our next step of this commitment is to finish our Climate Action Plan by January 2017 with the involvement of the entire campus.
