One of the Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs For Third Straight Year

For the third straight year — and fourth year since 2017 — Cal Poly has been named one of the Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs by ACPA-College Student Educators International and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.

Cal Poly’s Student Affairs division is among 30 divisions of student affairs throughout the U.S. recognized in 2021 for its commitment toward workplace and staffing practices that promote diversity, equity and inclusion; for providing professional development opportunities and family-friendly practices and policies for staff; and other attributes.

“When we create healthy working conditions for our staff, they can focus on promoting student success. This award only strengthens my resolve to continually implement improvements that establish a workplace that supports, appreciates and recognizes the unique talents and contributions of our amazing staff,” said Keith Humphrey, vice president for Student Affairs.

The university previously earned the distinction in 2017, 2019 and 2020.

“We continue to find innovative ways to help our staff feel like they belong and have a voice,” added Jamie S. Patton, assistant vice president for Student Affairs, diversity and inclusion. “We strive for continuous improvement to ensure that our staff has the opportunities to thrive in their profession, and I believe this recognition affirms our efforts.”
