Make an EPIC difference!

We’re looking for CI employees interested in making a difference by assisting in the University’s Emergency Public Inquiry Center (EPIC).  EPIC has been established to receive and process inquiries from students, parents, faculty, staff, University Glen residents, and the general public, during campus emergencies.

During emergencies, callers to the University’s emergency information hotline will have the option of speaking to a live operator with calls being directed to Technology & Communication’s Solution Center staff during normal business hours.

However, should a large-scale campus emergency arise that requires for calls to also be answered during after-hours, weekends or holidays, then a pool of CI employees will be called upon to assist with answering these calls.

Interested employees who can remain calm during emergencies will receive in-person and hands-on training prior to the start of each semester and will be compensated accordingly for hours worked in the EPIC during emergencies.

For additional information, contact Nancy Gill, Director of Communication & Marketing at 805-437-8456 or nancy.gill@csuci.edu.

Student participation needed for national survey

CI is administering the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) to first-year and senior students this semester.  NSSE gathers information about CI students to improve our campus. Survey information may be found at http://nsse.iub.edu/.

How does it work?

President Rush and NSSE (nsse@nssesurvey.org) invited students to participate on Feb. 16 with a link to the survey.  It’s not spam!  Students who complete the survey are automatically entered into a random drawing to win one of 4 gift cards ($10 value). 

Difficulty logging in?  Lost the email?

Don’t worry; you can still enter!   Send a note to michael.bourgeois@csuci.edu. You will receive an email reminder too. 

How is the information used?

CI uses survey information to learn about student experiences inside and outside of the classroom. Your voice helps shape campus planning, paints a picture of Dolphin life and why it is meaningful.  NSSE results will be posted on the Institutional Effectiveness website: http://www.csuci.edu/ie/survey-results.htm.

What about my privacy?

The survey is confidential and approved by CI’s Institutional Review (ethics) Board.  No individual answers will ever be identified in any report. Full details are available here. (PDF, 116KB)
