Planning our Future

Campus Master Plan Process

Cal Poly Pomona has embarked on a Campus Master Plan process that seeks to chart a new path for the future of the university. The existing Campus Master Plan was adopted in 2000, and the world is now a much different place.

 

The next Campus Master Plan will take into account the history and legacy of Cal Poly Pomona, while at the same time examining the university’s polytechnic identity and preparing for the academic, technological, economic and industrial challenges that await on the horizon.

 

The architectural firm Ayers Saint Gross, which was founded in 1912 and specializes in working with colleges and universities on planning, will shepherd the master plan process. Ayers Saint Gross plans to conduct hands-on workshops, open forums, walking tours of the campus, charrette sketch sessions and “listening sessions” with members of neighboring communities to hear their viewpoints and concerns.

 

The master planning team will examine all aspects of the university, including space analytics, sustainability, accessibility, traffic, enrollment, topography, infrastructure systems, campus safety, transit, landscaping, community engagement and facilities. The analysis is research-based and may include examining data from peer universities and precedents established at other institutions. 

 

The next Campus Master Plan aims to augment and support the objectives of the Strategic Plan and the Academic Master Plan, and be a reflection of the university’s vision statement:

Cal Poly Pomona will be the model for an inclusive polytechnic university that inspires creativity and innovation, embraces local and global challenges, and transforms lives.
