Be it resolved that the Academic Senate CSUCI recommend the establishment of the Community and Labor Studies Institute. The Institute will be under the auspices of California State University Channel Islands.

The mission of the Institute will be to “serve as a resource to students and campus community and those interested in the study of community and labor issues”. This is in concert with the mission of CSUCI. The Institute will afford CSUCI “students service learning opportunities” as well as serving as a “resource to government and public agencies, community-based organizations and labor unions in the region along with a wide spectrum of stakeholders including business and labor and non-profit organizations and to faculty and staff of California State University Channel Islands”.

The proposed Community and Labor Studies Institute will seek to secure sufficient operating and endowment funding from multiple sources, including foundation research and non-research grants, corporate and labor union donations, individual donors, and government contracts.. No funding from CSUCI will be requested. The Community and Labor Studies Institute will begin to actively seek development funding once the institute has been formally approved.

The objectives and plans outlined in the proposal meet the criteria set by CSUCI and the Committee for Institutes and Centers for proposing the establishment of an Institute. The Committee for Institutes and Centers endorses the proposal and requests that members of the Academic Senate support the proposed establishment of the Community and Labor Studies Institute at California State University Channel Islands.
