A Letter from the Vice President

Cal Poly Student Affairs has a long tradition of community engagement to help all students thrive throughout their Cal Poly experience. We are partners together with you, and student success is at the heart of our mission.

Every member of the Student Affairs community has a role in supporting a safe, caring and stimulating environment for students to learn, grow and be well. Our Student Affairs 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 a tool to guide us in driving priorities that serve students and promote the guiding principles for Cal Poly:

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

Our plan supports President Armstrong’s strategic vision for Cal Poly:

  • Create a vibrant residential campus that connects academic and social lives and serves as a core of the Cal Poly experience
  • Enhance student success
  • Increase support for teacher-scholar model
  • Create a rich culture of diversity and inclusivity that supports and celebrates the similarities and differences of every individual, on and off campus
  • Secure the financial future of the university
  • Develop a greater culture of transparency, collaboration and accountability with students, faculty, staff, alumni, supporters and our community

Thank you for joining us in this mission.

Keith B. Humphrey, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Affairs
