About the Event

The President’s Dinner & Concert is California State University Channel Islands’ premier fundraiser supporting students.  

Since our inception, CSUCI has embraced a commitment to access, inclusivity, and academic excellence.  Our faculty and staff have been dedicated to serving a diverse population of students, including many who are the first in their families to attend college, and thus changes not just individual lives, but shapes entire family trees. As a campus community, we are singularly dedicated to these students, and we know that their success strengthens our region, our state and our entire country.

Proceeds from the President’s Dinner & Concert support CSUCI’s critical needs, such as student scholarships, programs, new technology, facilities and equipment.
