CSI Association, Inc.

The College of Staten Island Association, Inc. is the allocating body charged with ensuring the fair, equitable and appropriate utilization of the Student Activity Fee. Budgets from those departments, organizations and groups funded and/or supported by the Student Activity Fee are carefully reviewed by the Board of Directors to ensure conformity to the CUNY Board of Trustee Bylaws.

The Student Activity Fee is used to fund educational and co-curricular programming, leadership development, cultural and social events and various community initiatives reflecting the needs of the student body of the College.  Even though classes are mostly remote, the student activity fee is still being utilized in support of student development and engagement at CSI.  More information about programs, services and activities made possible through student activity fees can be accessed through the following links:

The Board of Directors of the CSI Association, Inc. (a nonprofit corporation) is comprised of six (6) elected student representatives (including the elected Student Government President), two (2) faculty members, three (3) administrators, and two (2) independent directors. The Vice President for Student Affairs and Alumni Engagement serves as the President of the Association. 

All student activity fee budgets are approved at meetings of the Association's Board of Directors.
Minutes of these meetings are available for review in archives in the College’s Library. 

Each year the financial records of the Association are audited by an independent certified public accountant. The City University also periodically audits the Association's financial records. Interested parties may review copies of the annual audit and annual financial reports that are sent to the Library (1L). 

Members of the Association glean good resume experience, gain a glimpse into the economic and political aspects of college life, and have a say in the allocation of the activity fee. 

Any student with a minimum GPA of 2.25 can run for a position on the Association's Board of Directors.  For information about how to get involved with the Association or a schedule of Association meetings, please contact the staff of the CSI Association via email at association@csi.cuny.edu
