The College of Staten Island continues to bring together our campus and Staten Island communities to make people's lives better and more prosperous. CSI has changed in many different ways since its beginnings in 1956 as Staten Island Community College. Today, as a senior college of The City University of New York offering doctoral and graduate degrees, one thing has remained constant: the school's vital and visible presence in our community.
