This report reviews the proposal by the California State University to establish a 23rd campus to be known as California State University, Channel Islands. As the State University's first campus of the 21st century, it will be a full-service campus with lower division, upper division, and graduate educational services and will be located in the Ventura County region of the state.

The campus, to be located on the site of the former Camarillo State Hospital in the City of Camarillo, is planned to open in 2002. When operationalized, and it will fulfill a long-standing vision for a public four-year university in the region that will improve CSU access for area residents and increase CSU attendance rates for local high school students.

It is planned that the new campus operate initially in tandem with the CSU Northridge Ventura Center which is located at the Camarillo site. The center will be phased out gradually and according to a transition plan and schedule to be developed by the presidents of CSU Northridge and CSU Channel Islands, and accepted by the Chancellor and the CSU Board of Trustees.

The Commission met via teleconference and approved this report at its meeting on November 3, 2000.
