  • This year's CPP Common Read is 🥁🥁🥁... Michelle Obama's memoir, "Becoming."

    Dora Lee, CPP Director of Academic Support and Learning Services, on "Becoming:"

    "(Obama) talks about her childhood, growing up in a working-class family, and her experience as a first-generation college student attending a predominantly white male college. And her journey reminds us of how we as humans are always evolving and developing to become what we aspire to become.”

    Each year, the CPP First Year Experience Committee selects a Common Read, a book around which it builds a program for freshmen or transfers new to CPP. FYE will host programming and events around the memoir’s themes throughout the 2019-20 academic year.

    4. How has our approach to career readiness evolved?
    5. What can students do to get themselves career ready?

  • We are the only university that has a space agreement with NASA. The result of this exclusive relationship is the NASA-CPP Business Startup Program.

    Based on interaction with NASA inventors and technology, ambitious CPP student entrepreneurs create their own products and actually take them to market.

    Some of the innovative work through this program includes a microscope developing the capability to view red blood cells simply by using the computing power of a smartphone.

    One group of students is building a battery so lightweight and powerful, they hope to break the world record for the longest flight by an electric-powered unmanned aerial vehicle.

  • Jenny Greenberg graduated from CPP determined to prevent crime.

    Our outgoing ASI President has evolved from a kid glued to NCIS episodes to a young woman ready to attack the problem at its root cause - criminal justice policy reform.

    "My experiences have taught me to view crime as more of a reflection on our governing society, rather than the criminals themselves," she says.

    Our alumna oversees the food and beverage operations at Disneyland, which means her team is the reason you can wash down those Smoked Kaadu Ribs with some blue milk at Docking Bay 7.

    Gendreau has been busier than usual as the 150-plus locations where she coordinates cuisine at the resort have extended to a galaxy far, far away.

  • It is our privilege to award Joan Robinson-Berry an honorary doctorate of Science, the highest honor in the CSU.

    Mrs. Robinson-Berry (’82, engineering technology) has climbed the ranks to become Boeing's Senior Vice President for Engineering, Modifications and Maintenance.

    The Cal Poly Pomona alumna is the first African-American woman program manager of a multi-billion-dollar commercial airplane program and was named one of Black Enterprise magazine’s “Most Powerful Women in Corporate America.”

    “I’m proud of the strides that women and people of color are making in the engineering community because it’s really about how we bring our ideas and integrate them into our culture and our community,” Robinson-Berry said during the CPP College of Engineering commencement ceremony. “The diversity of thought from different cultures bring the innovation that we need to take us to the next level.”

    Freshman 6-year graduation rates are up to 71 percent.
    Transfer 2-year graduation rates nearly doubled.

  • Show me the honey!🐝

    Why did CPP launch an apiary program this academic year? Because honeybees pollinate $10 billion worth of crops in the U.S. every year.

    The goal of Mark Haag, a lecturer at our College of Agriculture, is to build a world-renowned bee program at Cal Poly Pomona. #WeAreCPP
