California State University Channel Islands

CSUCI is a four-year, public university in Camarillo, California. Established in 2002, is the youngest of 23 campuses in the CSU family. While our name suggests we’re surrounded by water, relax. You won’t need a ferry to get here. Camarillo is midway between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles and just 25 miles from Malibu. CSUCI is nestled against the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains—and close to the Pacific Ocean and the Pacific Coast Highway.

At CSUCI, everything—and we mean everything—connects to our mission and our “Four Pillars.” Our mission statement boils down to this: No matter which of our academic programs you choose, you’ll be at the center of your educational experience. Your education rests on our Four Pillars:

  • Community engagement — valuable experience you need and a chance to make the world better
  • Integrative — CSUCI’s signature interdisciplinary approach
  • International — an internationalized curriculum, a diverse campus community, and studying abroad opportunities
  • Multicultural — a campus that reflects the real world; a curriculum that prepares you for it
