As a new academic year approaches, Cal Poly Pomona will unite the campus community with Fall Conference 2002, a unique event that celebrates past accomplishments while previewing the promise of things to come.

This year?s Fall Conference theme, People Partnerships Progress, focuses on this university?s cornerstones of success. It highlights the service and dedication that unifies the campus, the academic creativity and excellence that are hallmarks of this institution?s educational commitment, and continuing outreach into neighboring communities and the world as a whole. These and numerous other efforts have combined to enhance Cal Poly Pomona?s reputation as a leading polytechnic university.

Fall Conference 2002 gets underway at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, with the All-University Breakfast and Convocation, featuring President Suzuki?s State of the University/Vision for the Academic Year address. Plenty of covered seating will be available on the grass area located on north side of Kellogg Gymnasium, with tram transportation available from central campus. Another highlight of opening day will be the University Service Awards ceremony, scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. in the University Theatre.
