CAFES Dean Andrew Thulin to Retire in December
Andrew J. Thulin, dean of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES), announced his plans to retire in December. Thulin, a Cal Poly alumnus, joined CAFES in 1998 as head of its Animal Science Department and has led the college for the last 10 years. Provost Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore will work with Thulin to ensure a smooth transition of the many critical projects underway in the college. A national search for the next dean will be conducted in partnership with an external search firm. During Thulin’s 25-year tenure, more than $230 million was raised for numerous new laboratories and buildings, including the recently completed JUSTIN and J. LOHR Center for Wine and Viticulture. As dean, he hired nearly 100 new faculty and his focus on expanding student and faculty success led the way for faculty to grow research grant funding to $21 million in 2022. “It has been my great pleasure to serve as dean for the past 10 years, focusing on developing solutions to food security, environmental sustainability and climate smart agriculture,” Thulin said. “My love for Cal Poly runs deep and I am honored to have spent the last 25 years alongside those who work tirelessly to prepare our graduates to address these global issues. I can retire knowing that the future is in good hands.”
Campus Community Talks Equity, Inclusion in Range of Topics At Teach In
Students, faculty, staff and community members gathered for a day of learning, discussion and deep thinking on equity and social justice topics at the seventh annual Teach In on Feb. 9. It was clear how much the event has grown since its beginnings in the College of Liberal Arts. This year, the Teach In was separated into five different tracks focused on specific topics, including Pop Culture and Media, Pathways to Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Reproductive Justice. An Art and Design Activist Artmaking Workshop taught participants how to make different forms of activist art. “We’re always looking to make sure we have a variety of topics across many different fields so that everyone can find something that they’re interested in,” said Jennifer Teramoto Pedrotti, interim associate vice president for academic initiatives and associate dean for diversity and curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts. “It’s also a good opportunity to see that diversity, equity and inclusion touches every field in some way.”

Learn About Nutrition and Food Security During National Nutrition Month
In honor of National Nutrition Month, University Personnel — Employee Wellbeing is sharing information about nutrition on a budget with employees. The average price of food in the United States has increased 10.1% over the last year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, buying food on a budget can go hand in hand with eating nutritious meals. To eat well on a budget, the Academy of Food Science and Nutrition suggests that people plan meals according to sales and include fresh produce, lean proteins and low-fat dairy. Whole grains and dried beans are inexpensive and provide nutritious sustenance. Additionally, Cal Poly employees have access to fresh, nutritious foods through the Cal Poly Food Pantry on Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. According to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo, one in five county residents experience food insecurity. If you or someone you know is food insecure, there are resources available, including SLO Food Bank and Cal Fresh. For additional budget-friendly tips, review Shop Healthy on a Budget.

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.
