New Online Experts Guide to Provide Unique Campus Service
The first 200 qualified participants who create or update an Experts Online profile will receive a free canvas briefcase.

The Office of Public Affairs invites Cal Poly Pomona experts to take advantage of a new electronic resource to support media relations, community service and collaborative research.

Experts Online is an easy-to-use directory that showcases the specialties of hundreds of Cal Poly Pomona scholars, professionals and administrators. The Office of Public Affairs developed Experts Online as a resource for: the university to highlight its faculty and staff; journalists seeking specialists to comment on issues; individuals and organizations looking for speakers; and academics to identify opportunities for research collaboration.

The site enables university experts to update and manage their own profiles by logging in with their Cal Poly Pomona Intranet account. In addition, it can include a portrait, short biography, list of degrees, PDF of a curriculum vita or resume, and links to personal Web sites.

Those who join Experts Online should be experts in their field. Those who choose to be media sources must be well versed enough in a subject or discipline to be quoted by the media; speakers should be comfortable with delivering a speech to an off-campus audience on their subject or discipline; and collaborative researchers are interested in working with other faculty/staff on research or special projects.

As an added incentive for Cal Poly Pomona experts interested in joining Experts Online, the first 200 participants who create or update their profiles will receive a free Experts Online soft-sided briefcase. Create or update your profile by visiting and clicking ?New Member? or ?Current Member.? If you are among the first 200 participants, you will be contacted by the Office of Public Affairs.
