Campus Transportation Survey Open Through May 18
Faculty, staff and students are invited to participate in the Cal Poly Campus Transportation Survey 2022. A team of Administration and Finance staff and Civil and Environmental Engineering Department faculty is conducting a comprehensive transportation survey to help develop the Cal Poly Transportation Demand Management Plan in support of the Campus Master Plan and the CSU Climate Action Plan. Information gathered through the survey will help the team understand how campus community members get to and from campus and whether they travel to the university every day or once a month. This will help the team better understand transportation needs and the resulting emissions and will inform mitigation efforts to minimize environmental impacts. The survey will be open until midnight Wednesday, May 18. It should take roughly 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. Once submitted, participants will be entered into a raffle for prizes including an e-bike, an iPad and gift vouchers. Questions? Email [email protected].
WSCUC Decision on Accreditation Expected During Summer
In late April, Cal Poly hosted a five-member visiting team from its institutional accrediting body, WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). The team met with over 20 groups of stakeholders from across campus during this visit. Most of these meetings were on various elements of diversity, equity, inclusion and student success, the themes of the institutional self-study submitted in February. The visit concluded with an exit meeting at which the team presented its initial commendations and recommendations. In particular, the team praised Cal Poly for close collaboration between divisions, for the decision to situate the institutional self-study in questions of DEI and student success, for students’ passion and dedication, for the institution’s commitment to meaningful student-centered programs and for the quality of Cal Poly staff and faculty support of our students. The team also thanked the campus for its commitment to transparency and honest dialogue. After the visiting team members prepare their final report, WSCUC will make its accreditation decision in late June. The decision will be shared with the campus community at that time.

Nutrition Professor Peggy Papathakis is retiring after 16 years at Cal Poly. She joined the Food Science and Nutrition Department in 2006 determined to engage in nutrition research in low-income countries and provide global nutrition experiences for nutrition students. In the last decade, more than 70 students have worked on her numerous research studies focused on improving the nutritional status of women and children in Malawi and Sierra Leone, Africa. In 2018 she received a Fulbright Scholar award to spend 10 months in Malawi, conducting research on hospital malnutrition and helping to build nutrition curriculum for clinical dietitians at the University of Malawi, College of Medicine. This was Papathakis’ second Fulbright Scholarship; she received one as a doctoral student in 2001 to conduct research in South Africa on the dual impact of breastfeeding and HIV on a woman’s nutritional status. Papathakis was instrumental in setting up a new scholarship for nutrition graduate students, the Beatrice Lunday Memorial Scholarship. She received several awards during her tenure, including the Cal Poly Distinguished Scholarship Award in 2016, CAFES New Faculty Award in 2010 and CAFES Sustained Excellence in Scholarship Award in 2016. Prior to coming to Cal Poly, Papathakis worked as a pediatric dietitian for more than 20 years.
Laurie Lyn Borello, longtime University Budget and Fiscal Planning staff member, passed Dec. 14. Borello was once told that she was the nicest person in the CSU — a title she coveted and did not shy away from reminding her co-workers of the compliment. Her family is hosting a celebration of life at noon Saturday, May 14, at the South Bay Community Center, 2180 Palisades Ave., Los Osos. All are welcome to attend. RSVP to [email protected]. An avid fan of the Giants, 49ers and Steph Curry, Borello wasn’t above a little Monday morning gloat. More importantly, she served an irreplaceable role as the go-to person for finance legacy information and was an authority on many financial processes on campus. During her time, she helped coordinate systemwide trainings such as CSU 101 and the CSU Business Conference. Borello retired from Cal Poly in June 2020. In lieu of flowers or gifts, friends may send a donation to the Hearst Cancer Resource Center of San Luis Obispo in her honor.
