About

History

1938 - The first year the campus is open for enrollment (then called the Cal Poly Voorhis Unit), the first governing body, Student Activities Committee (SAC), is formed and headed by Avon Carlson.

Education

Faculty in all disciplines put theory to practice, providing students with opportunities to apply their knowledge in hands-on projects, research collaborations, and valuable internship and service-learning programs.

Research

Students may choose to work side-by-side with faculty on research, garner unique internships or volunteer in community development projects. Lecture series, such as the Kellogg Distinguished Lectures, bring high-profile thought leaders to campus each quarter to discuss critical issues important to learning and leadership in an increasingly global world.

Housing services

DRC authorizes and facilitates the use of accommodations and services for students with disabilities. Each student receives an individualized set of accommodations based on their specific disability-related limitations.  A DRC disability specialist will determine this need based on the documentation provided and interactive process with student.

Library services

  • We believe that the Library should be a home away from home for students, faculty and staff. We also believe that the Library should serve as an important connection to the community.

    The definition of the library continues to change as we expand services via innovation and experimentation. Budget challenges will continue and the library will evolve as a result.
