Instruction and Academic Affairs at CSI

The Office of Instruction and Academic Affairs includes broad responsibilities across many instructional departments. Those departments are overseen by department chairs who report to three instructional deans. The three instructional divisions are General and Transfer Education, Career and Technical Education, and Health Sciences and Human Services. At the same time, these units are not independent of each other, but generally define reporting lines and responsibilities while working very closely together.

The assessment of student learning and continuous improvement are key priorities within the operation. The guiding principles for our collective operation are:

  • Create value in all we do
  • Transform challenges to opportunities
  • Bring out the best in everyone
  • Stay positive and respectful
  • Continuously improve ourselves and programs

From these principles we derive an overarching strategic direction aligned with the strategic goals of the College.

  • Develop people
  • Develop relationships
  • Develop practice
