Cal Poly and Its Students Infuse $1 Billion into Central Coast, Economic Impact Study Reports
Cal Poly’s economic contributions ripple throughout the county, region and state, supporting thousands of jobs and generating more than $1.6 billion in industry activity and over $105 million of state and local tax revenue, according to an economic impact study commissioned by the CSU. During 2018-19, the campus spent more than $1 billion, including up of $535.1 million in operational expenditures, $132.5 million in auxiliary costs and $70.1 million on construction projects. In addition, Cal Poly’s more than 20,000 students spent nearly $280 million. Researchers from ICF International Inc., a global advisory and digital services provider, utilized data from the 2018-19 academic year. Additionally, Cal Poly alumni who live on the Central Coast — a region of five counties that include Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and San Benito — earned an additional $996.4 million, thanks to their degrees, and alumni who remained in the Golden State earned an additional $3.8 billion in 2019.
CAFES Seeks Input on Future of Swanton Pacific Ranch
The College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences is in the process of re-envisioning the purpose of Swanton Pacific Ranch after much of it was destroyed by the CZU Lightning Complex Fires in August 2020. The college is seeking input on what the future of Swanton Pacific Ranch should look like. The campus community is invited to participate in this process by taking a survey and providing input. The survey is short and should only take about 10 minutes. The college’s guiding principle for this process is honoring Al Smith’s vision of Swanton Pacific Ranch as a unique Learn by Doing living and learning laboratory for Cal Poly students, dedicated to providing students, faculty, staff and the community with unparalleled learning and research opportunities for understanding sustainable land management practices. Campus responses will help inform the development of the strategic intent — the college’s roadmap — for Swanton Pacific Ranch.
A&F Focus Forward is Live; Give Feedback, Win Prizes
The new Administration and Finance survey, Focus Forward, is now live. With this reimagined survey, A&F leadership is reaching out to its constituents across campus for feedback on the division’s response to the pandemic over the past year. This information will help leadership learn from customers’ experiences with each department in a way that shares their knowledge and values. Open to all faculty, staff and students, Focus Forward will be available until April 30. The survey covers every unit and department within A&F; however, campus community members are only being asked to complete the sections relevant to them. For every section that participants complete, they will be entered into a drawing for an iPad Mini or more than 60 other prizes. The information gathered from the survey will be used to reassess A&F unit offerings and deliverables. This survey gives A&F leadership an opportunity to reflect on and assess needs, necessities and requests so they can continue to evolve to meet them.
COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Continues to Expand in SLO County
The San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department announced that SLO County community members ages 30 and older are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine locally. This includes Cal Poly students in this age group. The county’s eligibility also includes a list of specific employment sectors, including all Cal Poly employees and residents with specific medical conditions or disabilities. Those eligible can look for first-dose appointments at several local pharmacies or at one of three SLO County mass vaccination sites. Employees can sign up for the county’s vaccine registry online or through the County Phone Assistance Center at 805-543-2444 or 805-781-4280 (seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). University employees who live outside the county are still eligible for a vaccine at a county site based on their employment at Cal Poly. Review these frequently asked questions on Cal Poly’s vaccine page to help prepare for your appointment. SLO County Public Health advises everyone to plan to receive their second dose, if necessary, wherever they received their first dose. Second-dose appointments through a county-run vaccine clinic can be scheduled on the recoverslo.org website and should follow the timeline given to you at your first-dose appointment. Employees are highly encouraged to receive the vaccine when eligible but are not currently required to be vaccinated. Learn more about the vaccines and the vaccination process on the recoverslo.org frequently asked questions page and the Cal Poly coronavirus website’s vaccine page.
COVID-19 Vaccine Fact Check: Why Should Young People Consider Getting Vaccinated?
Welcome to the COVID-19 Vaccine Fact Check, weekly insights on the COVID-19 vaccines presented by Campus Health and Wellbeing. This week’s fact check addresses why young people should consider the COVID-19 vaccine. Here's what our campus experts say: Vaccines can protect the health of young people by reducing the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. Though young people tend to exhibit less severe symptoms of COVID-19, they can still become severely ill, have lingering health effects from the virus, and transmit the virus to others — especially those who may be more vulnerable — whether they're symptomatic or not. Also, young people don't always know if they have an underlying health condition that might make them more vulnerable to serious disease. Young people, specifically students, make up a significant portion of our local community. A strong vaccination rate among them will help campus and the Central Coast reach a degree of community protection — or herd immunity — that will make in-person activities possible and will help our economy reopen safely. Look for more COVID Vaccine Fact Check posts in future editions of the Cal Poly Report.
How Cal Poly's Jazz Ensembles Kept Making Music in a Pandemic
In February 2020, music Professor Arthur White and the students in Cal Poly's Jazz Ensemble and Vocal Jazz Ensemble were planning to record a CD when the coronavirus pandemic changed their plans. More than 365 days and one pandemic later, that CD, titled “another time, another place,” is out and available on streaming services — a testament to their grit and determination to put music out into the world in a time when playing music in a physical group is nearly impossible. “Normally we’re all out performing and playing gigs and interacting with people,” said White, the Music Department’s director of jazz studies. “We didn’t have that option this year, so we’ve done what we can. This was a way to commit to creating music in this environment.” The process of making the CD taught second-year music major and Vocal Jazz Ensemble member Danna Dumandan about her own ability to persevere as a musician in a difficult time. “The fact that I got it done and just didn’t put it down and quit, I’m proud of myself for that and I’m glad I kept going," she said.
Transfer Academic Coaching Appointments Available
Free transfer academic coaching appointments are available to all transfer students.

OCOB Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Townhall to be Held April 14

The more voices and perspectives the moderators can bring into this conversation — from faculty, students, staff and alumni — the more representative it will be of all members of the campus community.
‘Women and Migration’ to Air April 14
For the past two years, Cal Poly Arts, in partnership with the Performing Arts Center, has presented a popular series of evocative speakers from National Geographic Live. During this pandemic closure, Cal Poly Arts is proud to continue that tradition with a new four-part, virtual speaker series. Each 60-minute event will include stories and visuals; live, moderated conversation; and an audience Q&A session. Tickets are $16.50 per device, per event. The fourth and final event in the series, “Women and Migration,” airs via the Cal Poly Arts website at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 14. This roundtable discussion will illustrate that in 2019 more than 135 million women were living in countries other than the one in which they were born. Drawn by the promise of a better future, women increasingly have traveled to wealthier countries, taking jobs in child/eldercare and domestic work, as well as in manufacturing and agriculture — a shift described as “the feminization of migration.” For women who are forced to leave home because of famine or violence, migration is a gamble for their very survival.
