Changing of signage on these restrooms is expected to begin June 1.

Student Speaks on Experience with Supplemental Instruction at National Conference
Eduardo Gutierrez, a mechanical engineering senior and Supplemental Instruction workshop leader, was selected as one of two student keynote speakers at the 48th annual Association of Colleges for Tutoring and Learning Assistance conference on April 21. Gutierrez responded to the conference theme, “No Turning Back: Collaborating to Disrupt and Transform Tutoring and Learning for Social Justice,” by sharing about his experience as a first-generation student who initially struggled at Cal Poly and who found a sense of belonging and success through supplemental workshops in science and math. Gutierrez later thrived as a workshop leader and program mentor, giving back to peers by encouraging their educational and professional achievements. Lydia Keema, who serves as the Supplemental Instruction coordinator under the Office of Writing and Learning, nominated Gutierrez for this honor.

Join an Open Dialogue on Cultural Code-Switching May 31
A psychology senior project group will host an open dialogue titled "Open Dialogue: Cultural Code-Switching,” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, in the UU’s Multicultural Center, (No. 65), Room 111F. A group of Psychology and Child Development Department students — Eloisa Costa, Nanoha Kamiya, Michelle Vu and Sophia Velasquez — has been working on a senior project on the topic of cultural code-switching under the advisement of Assistant Professor Susana A. López. Cultural code-switching refers to the ways individuals temporarily adapt their language, behavior and actions to conform to a different — more dominant — cultural norm. The students’ senior project investigates the origin of this cultural code-switching, its impacts — including impacts on community belongingness, identity and psychological state — and the therapeutic approaches to help remedy the impacts of participating in this behavior. The students hope that this open dialogue will be a space to increase education about cultural code-switching and validate and affirm the experiences of students on campus who have culturally code-switched. The event is sponsored by the Office of University Diversity and Inclusion (OUDI).
