Embrace your Unlimited Possibilities

Our Message to You

Dear Valued Partner,

Cal Poly Student Affairs is committed to helping all students thrive throughout their Cal Poly experience, graduate, reach their goals and continue the connection with our university. Student success is our mission.

Student Affairs embraces the mission of the university by creating conditions that facilitate student success. This is accomplished by providing programs, experiences and services that support the learning and development of college students. As educators, Student Affairs professionals create inclusive opportunities for students to learn and grow outside the classroom. These intentional experiences are designed and developed based on established theories developed through scholarly research and assessment.

Every member of the Student Affairs team has a role in supporting a safe, caring and stimulating environment for students to learn, grow and be well. Our services and programs are built on this foundation, and we are dedicated to continuous improvement, discovery and innovation to meet the diverse needs of our students.

This Student Affairs Strategic Plan articulates our vision and serves as our roadmap in driving priorities that serve students and promote the guiding principles of Cal Poly:

  • Learn by Doing
  • Student Success
  • Excellence Through Continuous Improvement
  • Comprehensive Polytechnic University

Our plan aligns with the university strategic plan and supports President Jeffrey D. Armstrong’s strategic vision and goals for Cal Poly:

  • Nurture the campus community
  • Foster inclusion and diversity
  • Enhance student success
  • Enhance faculty and staff success
  • Develop financial sustainability
  • Address capital improvement and deferred maintenance

Together we will take the necessary steps to promote engagement and well-being for all students, and in doing so, shape the Cal Poly campus for the future.

In community,

The Cal Poly Student Affairs team
