Student Success Center

Cal Poly aims to create globally-minded, culturally competent and professionally evolved graduates ready to make a difference in their industries from Day One. The new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Success Center will feature an expanded Career Services Center, Student Diversity and Belonging programming and space for first-generation students.

Located at the corner of North Perimeter Road and Village Drive, the 25,000-square-foot Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Success Center will create a bustling, student-focused space in the heart of campus. While plans are still in the conceptual phase until fundraising is complete, the center is expected to open in early 2027.

"I am so excited to see this project create intentional spaces for cultural and identity-based centers and more effectively connect students to resources they need to thrive personally and professionally."  - Vice President for Student Affairs Keith B. Humphrey

Professional Development

The new Career Services Center will play a key role in helping students develop their career readiness and prepare them to successfully enter the workforce. It will allow for the expansion of employer interview rooms, event and meeting space, and a Professional Clothing Closet that provides free clothing to students in need.

The new center will nearly triple the current career services space, offering more than double the office space for career counselors to meet with students and triple the space offered to recruiters to hire our brightest students for their organizations. 

Expanded Cultural and Belonging Space

The new Student Diversity and Belonging Center will offer programming for students in several large workshop multi-purpose rooms, provide critical office space for Student Diversity and Belonging staff to meet with students, and increase the unique and targeted space for students of various identities to connect, engage and learn. 

First-Generation Space

The new Student Success Center will provide expanded space for programs that serve first-generation students, including Cal Poly Scholars, which supports high-achieving California students who come from low-income backgrounds, and the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), which supports students who have been historically, economically and/or educationally disadvantaged.
