Organization of Student Government
Student Government is organized into three primary branches:
  • Executive
  • Legislative
  • Judicial

California State Student Association (CSSA)

CI Student Government has an active membership in the California State Student Association(CSSA). This association is recognized in the California Education Code as the single recognized voice of all California State University system students.

Each CSU campus serves as a member of the Board of Directors and holds one vote. The association takes stances on political issues in order to protect and enhance the interests of CSU students. Also, the association works closely with the California State University Office of the Chancellor to enhance the CSU system.

Each month, a plenary meeting takes place at a different CSU campus, allowing the CSSA Board of Directors to get different perspectives on each campus' unique student cultures.

All CSU students and members of the public are encouraged to attend the plenary meetings so that they are aware of what is taking place on the statewide and national levels. CI is represented by the Student Government President and the Director of External Affairs at each plenary meeting
