Dear Dolphins,

Welcome to Spring 2022! I hope this message finds you well. This message includes information on resources available as we start the semester. If you have a need that isn’t presented here and would like assistance, please reach out to the Dean of Students office.

General Resources
In addition to general web pages for all campus programs and services, many of which are outlined below, there are four key locations on our website that are most helpful:

  1. Campus Services & Resources– A centralized list of CSUCI services, offices, and centers.
  2. Campus Programs and Activities – Key ways to get involved and connected:
    1. CSUCI Calendar– Contains mostly larger events
    2. CI Sync– Information posted by student clubs, organizations and areas of the campus. Learn how to navigate it on YouTube.
  3. COVID-19 Information– Information on certification, vaccination, testing, safety measures and requirements, specific to the Spring 2022 semester.
  4. Campus Communication– Find the most recent messaging about the Spring 2022 semester.

I recognize that you may be unsure of what resources you need right now or may be reluctant to reach out to staff for support. Access to all campus services is ongoing and available when you are ready. Below is contact information for several programs and resources. If you’re unsure which office or program to go to for support, please contact the Dean of Students office; we’re always ready to help.
