He will serve through Aug. 31, or until the permanent dean is selected. He last role at Cal Poly was as an associate dean for the college from August 2020 through last December.

Cal Poly Alumna is Part of Thanksgiving Tradition
Part of any Thanksgiving meal is stuffing — the bird, of course, and, in a sense, the dinner guests too — and one Cal Poly graduate has left her mark on the popular side dish. As you head down crowded grocery store aisles in advance of the holiday, keep an eye out for Mrs. Cubbison’s boxed dressings and stuffings. Unlike Betty Crocker, Mrs. Cubbison was a flesh-and-blood person. Long before women became regulars in the corporate world, Cal Poly alumna Sophie Huchting Cubbison (home economics, 1912) parlayed her knack for baking and her “degree” into a successful company that still bears her name, according to Laura Sorvetti, an archivist in Kennedy Library's Special Collections and Archives. Mrs. Cubbison’s pre-packaged stuffing and dressing mixes remain a fixture in grocery stores throughout 11 Western states and on many Thanksgiving tables.
