President Ortiz shares great news about the comprehensive campaign reaching the $100 million mark, a milestone for Cal Poly Pomona.
The campaign, with an overall goal of $150 million, seeks to strengthen the university’s ability to provide hands-on learning opportunities, to prepare students for the changing demands of workplace, to increase research and scholarship opportunities, and to ensure that a quality college education remains within reach for underrepresented communities.
“Hitting this point during a distressing economic era truly speaks to all your work, as well as the passion of our friends and alumni who recognize our role in educating tomorrow¿s leaders,” Ortiz says.
The president’s video message highlights PolyTeach on April 13, which will explore the growing use of technology to enhance learning. The workshops and guest speaker events are open to faculty, staff and students who are interested in technology and the innovative university.
Ortiz also invites the campus community to hear several guest speakers who will be coming to campus in April. They include Nobel Prize economist Paul Krugman on April 13, Angela Davis on April 11, and Cal Poly Pomona President Emeritus Bob Suzuki, who will be the keynote speaker at Unity Luncheon on April 12.
