College of Agriculture, Food, and Environmental Sciences

This is reality. We live in a new reality with exciting opportunities in agriculture, food and environmental sciences.

For generations, we have been training and educating industry leaders who have taken on the challenge to find innovative solutions.

Our students are hard at work. They are analyzing data and using technology to increase the pace of automation. They are working on best management practices and supply chain solutions to ensure a safe food supply. They are engineering solutions to find smarter and more efficient ways to use and conserve water. And this is just the beginning

We believe there is no better place to do this than at Cal Poly, and no better way than through Learn by Doing. This is our opportunity to help shape a new reality — a better world for us all.

We encourage you to be a part of shaping this new reality by giving to the department or program that resonates most with you. Any gift will make on impact as we strive to provide students will centers for excellence, and opportunities for achievement and innovation, but a gift to the Dean’s Power of Doing Fund will allow us to move quickly to seize special opportunities, leverage resources, catalyze partnerships in the rapidly changing agricultural and food industries, and address the most pressing needs across the college.
