Student Affairs

We have a responsibility to build the next generation of globally-minded and socially conscious leaders who are day-one ready for the workforce and contribute positively to their communities.

Student Affairs accomplishes this by creating diverse out-of-classroom experiences that complement classroom academics. Through Learn by Doing opportunities and student-centered programs, we empower students to explore their personal identities, values, skills, and purpose in support of their career and personal advancement.

Please consider a gift to the Cal Poly Cares Program, which supports students in need and keeps them on the path to graduation with one-time emergency grants of up to $2,000 for:

  • Housing and meals
  • Academic supplies and tuition
  • Medical emergencies
  • Professional clothing
  • Transportation needs

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the unexpected financial challenges some Cal Poly students face in their journey toward a degree. Your support of this program means the difference between students staying enrolled and on track for graduation at Cal Poly — or leaving the promise of a successful future behind.
