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.
The College of Staten Island is a senior college of The City University of New York (CUNY) offering Doctoral programs, Advanced Certificate programs, and Master’s programs, as well as Bachelor’s and Associate’s degrees.
The Office of Sponsored Programs and Research provides professional guidance and administrative support for externally funded research and other sponsored project activities. The Office works with faculty and staff in the development and submission of proposals and subsequent management of awards, as well as serving as liaison to the Research Foundation of The City University of New York.
Welcome to the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research. The Center offers a full range of career planning and skill development programs to assist students in achieving their career goals.
As a student at CSI you are a vital part of a community made up of students, faculty, and staff. As a community, we support one another. This website provides information about your rights and responsibilities and about the many services available for students with disabilities. We hope you will visit the Center for Student Accessibility and meet its staff.
You, like many other students, may find that you need to take your tests in a non-traditional setting or format. Examples of non-traditional testing include extended time, scribing services and/or reader services. The Center for Student Accessibility (CSA) can provide these services and accommodations if you provide appropriate documentation of disability to the CSA . To facilitate making these arrangements, you can obtain Test Accommodation Request forms from the CSA or from this website. This form can then be given to your instructor, and he/she can note any additional instructions, notes, or guidelines for test taking. A form must be submitted for each test.
Library supports the entire range of academic programs at the College through its collections, periodical subscriptions, and microforms. Computer facilities for database searching provide access to City University and national catalogs. The Library’s own resources are supplemented by an array of modern networking arrangements at regional, state, and national levels.
The mission of the Office of Information Technology Services (ITS), consistent with that of the College, is to advance the use of technology in all aspects of the College's operations, so as to strengthen support services, teaching, and research. ITS is responsible for guiding, assessing, planning, developing and executing state of the art information technologies.
Don’t limit your college experience to classes alone. Life at CSI also allows you to gain knowledge and skills outside the classroom, giving you a wide range of opportunities to explore your interests, develop new ones, and to discover the world. Here is how to get involved on campus, in your community and to build lifelong memories.
The Sports & Recreation Center houses a 1,200 seat arena, serving as the home of men's and women's basketball and men's and women's volleyball programs. It is also the home of many community showcases, athletic events, graduations and more.
