CSI opened in 1976 through the union of two existing colleges—Staten Island Community College and Richmond College. Staten Island Community College, the first community college in the University, opened in 1956. Richmond College, an upper-division college that offered undergraduate and graduate degrees to students who had successfully completed the first two years of college study elsewhere.
CSI is home to a School of Business, School of Education, and School of Health Sciences, as well as The Verrazano School Honors Program, and the Teacher Education Honors Academy. CSI is also a select campus of the Macaulay Honors College University Scholars program.
CSI students perform research with faculty in every academic discipline on campus, using the College's state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in more than 70 advanced science labs, including the Center for Developmental Neuroscience and Developmental Disabilities, the CUNY High Performance Computing Facility, and the Office of Institutional Research, among others. Many students also enrich their education through internships with leading companies in New York City.
