Note from the Executive Director

Welcome to Cal Poly! It is an exciting time to be a Mustang as our university travels a path of significant transformation. The positive energy on campus is palpable, and the year ahead of us looks bright.

On behalf of the Cal Poly Corporation, we are proud to be supporting the needs of our growing campus. It is the reason we are here. As Cal Poly’s service auxiliary, the corporation operates for one purpose — to advance Cal Poly and its mission.

With your success at the forefront of our mission, we strive to identify and offer the very best services for the campus community. And this takes a collaborative approach.

The corporation provides vital services and resources for the university, offering everything from campus food and retail options to research support and employment opportunities.

We continuously seek campus community input to ensure our services keep pace with the evolving needs of our customers. In this way, we are committed to being responsive and flexible so that we can continue enhancing the campus experience, now and in the future.

To invest in that future, we are making exciting changes in our daily operations. We have recently selected Follett Higher Education to assume management of our University Store, and we have developed a food service partnership with Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services. These developments will expand the savings, support and resources we offer to our Cal Poly community.

And because every dollar spent on our services stays right here on campus, the corporation is uniquely positioned to support the long-term goals of the university. The corporation contributes more than $1 million annually to the university. This money has gone toward supporting university programs, facilities and development.

We are honored to serve Cal Poly and give back to the campus. By the same token, we look forward to supporting you throughout your Cal Poly experience!
