Supporting Student Success since 1941
For over 80 years, the Cal Poly Corporation has proudly served the university, supporting the educational mission and providing quality services, which complement the instructional program. The corporation is a nonprofit auxiliary organization and independent of the university, which allows us to retain earnings and put them to work for the university. Over the years, the corporation has contributed greatly to the success of students and the university in a number of ways as you can see below.
The corporation completes one of the largest capital projects in its history, with the construction of the LEED Gold Certified, Vista Grande Dining Complex. The Board of Directors approves the largest single donation in the corporation’s history with a $5 million contribution to the construction of the William and Linda Frost Center for Research and Innovation. This is the start of a $75 million investment in new and upgraded facilities to improve the student experience.
