Student Union

Student Union is a student-run and student-funded organization supports students' needs by promoting their involvement in all levels of the CIIS community. Each semester Student Union allocates funding to support student participation in international and national conferences, special events for the CIIS community, and to active student groups. Student are encouraged to learn about these opportunities and to become involved in our multiple student groups whose missions serve a diverse field of interests; from astrology, meditation, expressive arts, sacred medicines, to social-oriented groups that support people of color, Latina scholarship and service, LGBT community, and international students.

Every registered student is encouraged to become involved and to attend Student Union monthly meetings. The goal of meetings are to insure accountability of Student Union funding and to create a forum to explore student ideas and concerns aimed to enhance the quality of students' well-being and representation at CIIS.

2018 Student Leadership Groups

Coniunctio

An Astrology Study Group dedicated to the support and growth of an astrological community of learners at CIIS, fostering an approach to the discipline of astrology which is creative, imaginative, and intellectually rigorous. All knowledge and skill levels are welcomed in our topic-based approach, which emphasizes peer learning and mentoring. This will be a great way to connect with students of astrology at CIIS and access resources to further your studies.

Impact @ CIIS

Offer CIIS students the intellectual and peer support to tackle impact-oriented projects. Create a community of social entrepreneurs. Connect to the larger innovation community of the Bay Area.

Regularly scheduled meeting every 2 weeks. Meetings involve "check ins" where students provide updates on their projects and ideas, "pitch" where students share an idea they would like more support for, "workshops" where important business skills are shared in a peer­learning format. Generally our meeting is followed by an informal social gathering off campus.

Spiritual Emergence

We are a group of people who experience and/or are interested in generating awareness, discussion and integration of spiritual emergence and other extraordinary experiences/phenomena in the CIIS and community. Our hope is to give voice to and empower people's psychological and spiritual experiences that have been marginalized, pathologized, silenced, and/or oppressed.
