Marketing & Communications

At Cal Poly Open House, Marketing and Communications created a one-of-a-kind experience to welcome prospective students and their supporters.  

Our Role at Cal Poly

Serving as the in-house marketing and communications department for the corporation, we work to raise awareness and tell the story of the varied departments, programs and initiatives that make Cal Poly one of the best universities in the nation. We are a team of highly motivated, amazingly organized type-A’s who work quickly, research widely and enjoy nothing more than a well-planned, impeccably designed, clearly communicated, AP-styled and perfectly executed marketing plan. In addition to supporting the corporation, we provide marketing and communication assistance to several university divisions, units and departments.
