A Message from the Assistant Dean


My favorite part of my job is meeting our alumni, hearing about their careers, and learning what role Cal Poly has played in their lives. Every story is different, but I often notice a few common threads.

The biggest link that connects our Orfalea network is a Learn by Doing attitude. More often than not, alumni can trace their professional ambitions back to the real-world experiences they had as students.

Today, the college aims to enhance career readiness among all students through our core initiatives supporting international opportunities, Accounting Area growth, the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship’s programs, our new Packaging Value Chain Center and our Business Building renovation.

More than ever, your support is essential in making vital programs accessible to each of our 3,000 students. Our unique brand of experiential business education wouldn’t be possible without the support of alumni, industry partners, parents and friends like you.

As you turn these pages, I hope you see the role your generosity has played in the success of our college and the lives of our students. The story we’ve written together thus far has been remarkable, and we’re far from finished.
