As part of the institutional strategic plan, Cal Poly Pomona is diligently working toward extending the influence and resources of the university beyond the campus through quality service-learning opportunities. Service-learning is an academic course where a service project or service experience is part of the overall grade.
In the spirit of learning-by-doing, Cal Poly Pomona faculty, staff and students actively support and engage in service-learning activities that build meaningful and sustainable community partnerships.
