Cal Poly Earns 30th Consecutive Best in the West Ranking from U.S. News
Cal Poly, the Golden State’s first public polytechnic school that launched its renowned Learn by Doing education in 1903, has been named the best public, master’s-level university in the West for the 30th straight year in U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Colleges guidebook. The 2023 guide, released Sept. 12, assessed an all-time high 1,500 U.S. bachelor’s degree-granting institutions on 17 measures of academic quality. It lists Cal Poly as No. 2 overall in the West — the same as last year — and as the region’s top-ranked public master’s-level university. In addition, Cal Poly was again named No. 1 in the West for Most Innovative Schools; several Cal Poly College of Engineering programs were ranked among the best in the nation for masters-level educational institutions; and the university was for the third straight year ranked as the top school in the West for veterans among public and private institutions that participate in federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty service members pay for their degrees. Get a deeper look at how Cal Poly has changed in the last 30 years on the Cal Poly News site.
Cal Poly Wins First-Ever Grant on Space Cybersecurity from US National Science Foundation
Cal Poly’s Ethics + Emerging Sciences Group has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) to study outer space cybersecurity, both technical and policy dimensions. The two-year project is the first that the NSF has funded on the subject. With interdisciplinary scholars and prominent expert consultants, the new project will generate novel scenarios for space cyberattacks while identifying and analyzing gaps in space law and norms that might allow for misunderstandings and conflict in the already contested but vital domain of outer space. According to the project’s principal investigator Patrick Lin, philosophy professor and director of the Ethics + Emerging Sciences Group, it is urgent to study space cybersecurity given a perfect storm of factors. “All of our space laws, such as the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, are just too old and need to be updated for today’s technological realities,” Lin said. “At the same time, space systems are increasingly complex, which means more cyberattack vectors that need to be anticipated for informed policy planning and technical designs.”
Upward Bound Program Awarded New Five-Year Federal Grant
Cal Poly’s Upward Bound program recently received a $2.3 million federal grant to help fund the Upward Bound program through the 2026-27 academic year. The five-year grant will award more than $460,000 annually to the program, representing a $62,000 annual increase to its previous federal grant award. The pre-college outreach program provides a variety of services to students with historically excluded backgrounds at four local high schools: Nipomo, Ernest Righetti, Pioneer Valley and Santa Maria. “I’m grateful for this new five-year award and the support it provides local students who may think college is out of reach,” said Keith Humphrey, vice president for student affairs. “This grant will not only open up possibilities for many students, it will also serve as an economic engine for the Central Coast by producing more college-educated individuals that our economy needs right now.”
Grand Re-Opening of Renovated and Renamed University Store Set for Sept. 29

Armstrong, Cal Poly Corporation CEO Cody VanDorn and Follett Higher Education President Ryan Petersen from 2-3 p.m. There will be food, valuable coupons, and music and cheer provided by the Cal Poly Band and Mustang Cheerleaders.

Students will be able to easily find books and materials, and all customers will be able to shop an expanded assortment of merchandise.

‘Generosity’ Mural Artist Talk, Ribbon-Cutting Set for Sept. 30
Cal Poly will debut its first commissioned outdoor mural, “Generosity,” with an artist’s talk and ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, Sept. 30. Central Coast-based artist Oscar Pearson painted the mural, located in the newly renovated Via Carta Plaza adjacent to Campus Market. He will give a talk at 11:10 a.m. in Room 0001 in the Advanced Technology Laboratories (No. 7). The ribbon-cutting will follow the talk at 12:10 p.m. near Campus Market. All are welcome. To help beautify, inspire and grow the collection of campus public art, the Cal Poly Corporation commissioned the mural following a thorough proposal process that included a selection committee comprised of students, faculty and staff and a member of the community. The mural has transformed a divided triptych wall into a vibrant mural that encourages student and community interaction. The mural speaks to several themes, including recognizing the valuable contributions of farm laborers on the Central Coast and Cal Poly student contributions to the field of agriculture.

I could not be here without my support systems here at Cal Poly and back home in L.A.,” Zamora said. “The work I do at Cal Poly has allowed me to uplift myself by uplifting my community; the effort I put in stems from their encouragement. My community and my support system have created a safe space for me to grow and learn.”

Chris Miller will retire from his managing director role at the Performing Arts Center after six and a half years. Throughout his time Miller managed the PAC’s $3 million annual operating budget, and oversaw nearly 400 annual public and university events, hosting approximately 75,000 event attendees annually. The PAC saw financial success during his tenure with operating surpluses each fiscal year, except the pandemic-shortened 2019-20 season. The PAC’s operating reserve balance has doubled, and nearly $2 million has been added to its Major Maintenance/Capital Renewal Fund. Miller is most proud of how the PAC staff overcame the significant challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, as they pivoted to provide critical support for pandemic response and testing on campus, and quickly developed the capacity to produce complex virtual events, including a concert series featuring local artists. Miller joined the PAC in May 2016, relocating from Seattle, where he enjoyed a 30-year career in various performing arts and venue management positions. His last day on campus will be Oct. 14. Ryan Gruss, current director of Patron Services and Campus Ticketing, will serve as interim managing director starting Oct. 15. There will be a reception to celebrate Miller’s retirement and welcome Gruss from 4-5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in the PAC lobby. Sign the virtual retirement card for Chris Miller.
