About the University: 

California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) opened in 2002 as the newest campus in the California State University system. Since that time, the University has grown and developed into one of the premier public universities, not only in the California State University system, but also in the nation. Indeed, U.S. News & World Report listed CSUCI as 20th among “Top Public Schools” in its 2021 edition of Best Colleges Rankings. In 2020, CollegeNET also ranked CSUCI 20th out of over 1,449 schools in its “Social Mobility Index,” and Money Magazine rated CSUCI as the 15th “Most Transformative College” in the nation.

CSUCI is a public comprehensive university that engages students in critical inquiry and is dedicated to educating leaders for a global society. The University is located in Ventura County and is home to more than 6,900 undergraduate and 239 graduate students. Approximately 55% of CSUCI’s students are Pell Grant eligible, and approximately 62% are first-generation college students. CSUCI is also proud to be designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), with 55% of its undergraduate students self-identifying as Latinx, 25% as White, 6% as Asian/Asian American, 4% as multiracial, and 2% as Black/African American. In 2019, CSUCI was awarded Excelencia in Education’s inaugural “Seal of Excelencia” for its facilitation of Latinx student success.

CSUCI is committed to diversifying its faculty in order to address students’ ever-changing needs in the 21st century. The University is also taking steps to confront racism and to advocate for social justice. To this end, CSUCI encourages applicants to apply who are motivated to serve and contribute to the university’s tenure-track body, which self-identifies as 62% White, 21% Latinx, 9% Asian/Asian American, and 2% Black/African American.

About the Program: 

The English Department at CSU Channel Islands offers small, interactive courses in which students can engage with theory, interpret literary texts that speak to their experiences, and produce creative and critical writing that imagines new and different worlds. We invite students to explore diverse, artistic and expressive works in genres old and new. We read within and against the tradition. We situate interdisciplinary, global Englishes as the living traditions of a vibrant and evolving field of study. We write both to understand our current realities and to explore possible futures. We examine language and literacy practices through structural analysis and a sociocultural lens.
Our regionally, nationally, and internationally-engaged faculty support students outside of the class through a speaker series, community-engaged projects, field trips to write at the Santa Rosa Island Research Station, and literary and professional internships to explore writing careers.
