K-8th Grade Tours and Programming

Fall 2020 Semester

CSU Channel Islands will remain virtual in the fall, therefore k-8th grade programming for University Outreach (LEAP) has been suspended.  We take the health and safety of our students, staff, visitors, and community seriously and urge everyone to continue to follow the guidelines set forth by public health officials. We appreciate your understanding.

No decision has been made for Spring 2021, however University Outreach will accept reservations with the anticipation that our campus will reopen. Please note, reservations spring 2021 opened on May 1, 2020.


University Outreach at California State University Channel Islands looks to motivate and inform K-8th grade students the benefits of higher education and goal-setting for a brighter future.  Primarily serving K-8th grade students of under-represented and low-income communities through distinct college readiness programs, University Outreach seeks to create a university-going culture through free-of-charge campus visits, school site visits and community events.

Programs Offered:

  • K-8th grade Pathway to College program (Fridays)
  • K-8th grade 1-hour Guided Tour (Tuesdays or Wednesdays)

Things to know:

  • Tour guides are volunteers, known as the LEAP team. Tour capacities, minimum chaperones, and set times are non-flexible.
  • Select an on- or off-campus program link below to view specific information for each program.
