Does the institution have a student-run enterprise, such as a cafe, through which students gain sustainable business skills?:

A brief description of the enterprise:

The CSU Channel Islands Bicycle Kitchen's primary mission is to provide low cost bicycle repair/maintenance education to the CSUCI community and function as a social hub for the local cycling community. This program aims to provide workspace, tools and information about how to live more sustainably by choosing to commute to and from campus by bicycling. Furthermore, their mission augments CSUCI's commitment towards building a green campus with respect to education, transit and recycling. In helping create a more active/engaged cycling community, it is hoped that the number of commuters coming to campus by auto would decrease, while the number arriving by sustainable energy (i.e. bicycle) would increase. A repair and maintenance shop was opened in the fall of 2009. The CI Bicycle Kitchen is also an official USA Cycling intercollegiate team and competes in road and mountain bike racing.
