The CSI Association is a nonprofit corporation with a Board of Directors composed of six students, two faculty members, and three administrators, and two independent directors who approve budgets and administer the student activity fee at CSI. The Association also allocates an earmarked portion of the fee that it traditionally has applied to Commencement exercises, student leadership development, and administration of the Corporation. The Association participates in the development and review of activity fee budgets for Sports and Recreation, Health and Wellness, the Children's Center, the WSIA radio station, the Campus Activities Board, and a proportion of Transportation Services all SAF funded. Any student with a minimum GPA of 2.25 can run for a position on the Association's Board of Directors. The Vice President for Student and Enrollment Services serves as the President of the Association. All student activity fee budgets are approved at meetings of the Association's Board of Directors. Minutes of these meetings are posted for review and sent to the archives housed in the Library. Each year the financial records of the Association are audited by an independent certified public accountant. The City University also periodically audits the Association's financial records. Interested parties may review copies of the annual audit that are sent to the Library (1L). Members of the Association glean good resume experience, gain a glimpse into the economic and political aspects of college life, and have a say in the allocation of the activity fee.
The collection is arranged in two series consiting of the minutes of the meetings of the association, and the budget and expenditures reports. both official communitcations from the association. Both series are organized by the date of publication of the communications.
