Regional Economic Development Organization REACH, in partnership with Deloitte, completed an economic impact analysis of Cal Poly that indicates the university’s annual economic impact in the region is $2.6 billion, making up 12% of the area’s economic activity. The analysis evaluated data covering both San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara counties, including employment, capital expenditures and other spending by the university, students, faculty and staff, and visitors. As the largest employer in San Luis Obispo County, Cal Poly employs the full-time equivalent of 5,000 people with a total payroll of $403 million, which collectively contributes $576 million to the region. The analysis found that the biggest boost to the region’s economy — $1.4 billion — comes from the university’s development of an educated regional workforce.

Get Around Campus Safely This Winter
Alongside the growing popularity of electric scooters, skateboards, one-wheel and micro-mobility devices are increased safety concerns and complaints from Cal Poly community members about collisions, near collisions and close calls with pedestrians.

The road is shared by bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians, all trying to safely get to destinations. Remember that everyone can share the road and the responsibility. Cal Poly Public Safety reminds faculty, students and staff how to get around campus safely:
- Bikes are a great way to avoid parking fees.
- Mustang Shuttle is an easy way to get around and people watch.
- Get steps in by walking.
- Look both ways before crossing.
- Follow posted traffic signs.
