COVID-19 Memorial Gives Campus Chance to Grieve, Remember and Heal
About 45 campus and community members came together for a COVID-19 memorial to commemorate the two-plus years of the pandemic, allow time to grieve the time lost and remember those who passed. During the service, held April 19 on O’Neill Green, attendees listened to Hospice SLO County Executive Director Shannon McOuat and Director of Counseling Services Tony Huffaker give inspirational messages focused on the need for self-care and compassion for others. Hospice’s Threshold Singers, an a cappella group that sings at the bedside of those who are dying, performed. Attendees had a chance to write down who or what they would like remembered, and each person placed a flower in a vase when their remembrance was read. “By the end, we had three beautiful vases of flowers that represented how our collective grief could be transformed into something beautiful,” said Sara Bartlett, lecturer in the Social Sciences and Psychology and Child Development departments. After the ceremony concluded, attendees could receive self-care kits and talk to Cal Poly counselors, visit the Hospice SLO County booth and participate in a seed-planting activity organized by the Cal Poly Psychology Club.
Students Design Technology Solution to Make School Buildings in Developing Countries Safer in Collaboration with the World Bank
The Cal Poly Digital Transformation Hub (DxHub), powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), and a team of Cal Poly students designed a mobile app for the World Bank to help improve school safety in developing countries. The app is projected to reduce costs and time by 50%. Millions of children’s lives and billions of dollars in infrastructure are at stake, since disasters such as earthquakes and cyclones put more than 1 million school buildings in low- and middle-income countries at risk of collapsing. The cutting-edge technology was developed by the DxHub, using AWS Cloud-based tools, for the World Bank’s Global Program for Safer Schools (under the umbrella of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery). A multidisciplinary team of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as Professor Franz J. Kurfess in the Computer Science and Software Engineering Department, worked with DxHub officials to create the mobile phone app design and deep learning computer vision model. The model simplifies how different types of school buildings vulnerable to natural disasters are identified to speed up the risk-informed intervention and investment planning to ultimately make schools safer at scale.

Students’ Sustainable Packaging Design for San Luis Obispo Business Wins First Place in National Competition
After a year of research and development, a team of graphic communications students gained hands-on experience designing new sustainable packaging and labels for a San Luis Obispo-based gourmet cupcake and dessert business — and took first place for its effort. Seven students participated in the Phoenix Challenge, a yearlong project in which students help a local small business rebrand and market itself with materials using the flexographic print process, a technique that uses a flexible plate to print on a variety of materials. The students, Naomi Furuya, Mandy Ko, Isabel Lao, Kaitlin Sakae, Ashley Rubens, Madeline Wales and Sadie Curdts, won first place at the college-level competition in March against teams from across the U.S. This year’s theme was sustainable packaging for sustainable business, and the students focused on helping a local small business reduce packaging costs and make its brand stand out.

Students Studying Effects of Climate Change Earn Prestigious Research Fellowships
Two graduate students in the biological sciences program were awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships to support their ongoing research on responses to environmental changes to plants and animals in California. Annie Meeder, a first-year graduate student from Paso Robles, with the support of her faculty advisor, Jenn Yost of the Biological Sciences Department, is studying dynamics of Santa Cruz Island vegetation communities and how these communities have changed in response to certain historical disturbances. Savannah Weaver, a second-year graduate student from San José, plans to continue to study the water balance of reptiles, specifically how water requirements and water-conserving adaptations vary over time and among species and different habitats. Fellowships provide students with a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, as well as access to opportunities for professional development available to NSF-supported graduate students.

Ed Saliklis Honored with National ASCE George Winter Award
The American Society of Civil Engineers has awarded architectural engineering Professor Ed Saliklis the 2022 ASCE George Winter Award. Created in 1990, this prestigious national award recognizes “the achievements of an active structural engineering researcher, educator or practitioner who best typifies the late Dr. George Winter's humanistic approach to his profession: i.e., an equal concern for matters technical and social, for art as well as science, for soul as well as intellect.” ARCE Department Head Al Estes said, “The award was tailor-made for Ed, who can teach an architecture studio in the morning and a graduate-level mechanics class in the afternoon. He sings, plays the ukulele, writes poetry and paints, while still finding time to author three engineering/architecture textbooks in the last five years.” The award will be formally presented to Saliklis at the 2023 ASCE Structures Congress next May in New Orleans.

Cal Poly alum and friend Jim Copeland, a giant among San Luis Obispo civic leaders, passed away April 25. After graduating from San Luis Obispo in 1959, Jim attended Cal Poly for a time but left before graduating, in order to join the U.S. Army. Prior to his death, the university had planned to give him an honorary Doctorate of Business at the June 2022 Commencement. The degree will be awarded posthumously. Jim — along with his wife Sandy, his brother Tom, and Tom’s wife, Pam — played a significant role in the betterment of both San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly. Jim and Tom transformed their mother’s shoe store into Copeland Sports, with over 50 locations in four states before selling the company in 2001. They were pivotal in helping preserve the unique charm of San Luis Obispo — helping to protect historic buildings like the Old Mission School and encouraging new development, including projects like Court Street, the Downtown Center and Hotel San Luis Obispo. His local philanthropy and involvement included French Hospital, the Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo, the San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum, and the new San Luis Obispo County Jail Behavioral Health Unit.
At Cal Poly, Jim was an enthusiastic supporter of student athletics. His and Sandy’s giving provided for campus improvements such as the university’s new Beach Volleyball Complex, Baseball Clubhouse, Mott Athletic Center and the future Tennis Pavilion. In addition, Jim, Sandy, Tom and Pam donated more than $1 million through the California Community Foundation to initiate the Elijah McCoy Scholars program, named after the celebrated Black engineer, which funded 10 full-ride scholarships for African American engineering students to graduate without student debt. The Copeland family asks those wishing to honor Jim’s memory consider a donation to one of the projects he supported, including the Elijah McCoy Scholarship program and the Cal Poly Beach Volleyball program. For more on how to donate to either program, contact the Planned Giving Office at ext. 6-7125.

An adaptation, reimagining and critique of ”The Little Mermaid,” this play teases and expands ideas of romantic, obsessive and unrequited love that we learn from popular stories. Tickets are $12 for students, seniors and children, and $20 for adults.
