University Supporters Honored With Donor Wall

If you haven?t already noticed, a construction crew recently partitioned off a section just outside the CLA?s second floor entrance to make way for a new donor wall.

In tribute to the supporters who have helped establish and sustain Cal Poly Pomona, the university is dedicating a donor wall titled ?In Praise of Partnership.? The monument is currently under construction on the outside wall leading to the CLA?s second floor entrance, with completion expected by Thanksgiving. The names of nearly five dozen donors, who have each contributed $250,000 or more to Cal Poly Pomona over the years, will be prominently displayed. Spanning approximately 30 feet in length and 7 feet in height, the imposing monument will also feature select photos of university life and decorative illumination.

The Division of University Advancement and the Office of Facilities Planning have collaborated on the project over the past year. The campus community is invited to attend the official unveiling, slated for mid-January, with details forthcoming.
