California State University Channel Islands follows the Nepotism Policy of the California State University as expressed in HR 2004-18 (see below). That is, we seek qualified candidates through appropriate search procedures preceding each appointment and promotion. There shall be no bars to the appointment of immediate family members in administrative, faculty or staff employment categories, in the same or different units or departments as long as there is an approved Nepotism Compliance Agreement to insure there will be no conflict of interest regarding any personnel action. This applies to the following employment categories: all staff and faculty covered by collective bargaining agreements; all employees in designated confidential positions; employees hired as administrators in the Management Personnel Plan (MPP); and those in excluded classifications, e.g., student assistants, work-study, special consultants, etc.
