Welcome to Cal Poly Pomona!

New Tenure-Track Faculty Orientation at Cal Poly Pomona is Tuesday – Thursday September 13-15, with free days on Monday and Friday to do business (and attend a benefits workshop!).  NTTFO is a great time to learn about the university and meet other new colleagues.  It’s well worth attending if at all possible, even if you are already familiar with Cal Poly Pomona.  We provide a small stipend as an acknowledgement of your time.

For questions, please contact Dr. Victoria Bhavsar, the Director of the Faculty Center, at  See the Faculty Center website at
