K-8th Grade Tours and Programming

Spring 2020 Semester

University Outreach at CSU Channel Islands will be suspending all programming for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. 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 apologize for the inconvenience, and we regret that we will not have the opportunity to welcome you to our campus. Please note, reservations for fall 2020 - spring 2021 will open 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.
