K-8th Grade Tours and Programming


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.
