As part of Cal Poly’s continued response to the coronavirus pandemic, several changes are coming to campus websites.

Roadmap will continue to be updated, and campus community members are encouraged to check back for any changes to campus COVID-19 protocols. In depth information for students and employees is being moved to websites managed by Student Affairs and University Personnel. Information on student vaccination, testing, isolation and other resources is available on Campus Health and Wellbeing’s website.

Introducing Vista Grande Express Reusable Container Program
Campus Dining is introducing a new program at Vista Grande Express intended to help the Earth and your wallet. Choose a small or large reusable container — $6.95 or $8.95 respectively — and fill it with your choice of a wide selection of menu items. A single container needs to be reused as few as three times to beat the environmental impact of using a single-use container. The Vista Grande Express reusable container program will keep at least 500,000 single-use containers from entering the waste stream each year. Vista Grande Express only accepts PolyCard payments. Faculty and staff can add funds to a PolyCard through Campus Express. A $5 refundable deposit will be added to all purchases, and it will be returned once the container is brought back. The menu rotates weekly, so come by often to find new favorites and help the planet.

Participants will also use evidence-based practices, such as letter writing, breathing exercises and affirmations development to heal from those experiences and become more efficacious and self-assured in an environment that often denigrates and invalidates BIPOC faculty. It will be facilitated by faculty members Susana López, Joni Roberts and Amber Williams, OUDI/CTLT Faculty Associates for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Teaching.

Cal Poly Report (CPR) is Cal Poly's official employee newsletter, designed to communicate information about officially sanctioned university news or events to faculty, staff and administrators. Submissions may run a maximum of three times and should be limited to 150 words. To help ensure CPR continues to contain only relevant and approved information, submissions are required to come from or be approved by the employee designated to approve submissions in the respective colleges, units and work areas. A list of designated approvers is available on the Cal Poly Report index website. Entries submitted by those other than the designated approver must be accompanied by an approval form signed by the unit's approver. The approval form is available online in fillable pdf format or a downloadable Microsoft Word format. CPR is published weekly during the school year, except during academic breaks, and monthly in the summer. The deadline for each issue is 12:30 p.m. the Friday prior to publication.
