Academic Master Plan

Guided by the University Strategic Plan, the Division of Academic Affairs will launch efforts in November 2016 to complete an Academic Master Plan during the 2016-2017 academic year. The academic master planning process is neither a program prioritization process, nor a plan to close academic programs. Rather, the Academic Master Plan will serve as our collective vision for our academic identity, values, and future directions. For example, the plan will address questions such as: What does it mean to be a polytechnic in the 21st century? What pedagogical approaches are appropriate for our learn-by-doing philosophy? What is the role of graduate education at Cal Poly Pomona? What support structures should exist for faculty and staff? How should our learning spaces be designed to achieve our goals? How should we assess the effectiveness of our academic programs? What enrollment management strategies are appropriate? A well-developed Academic Master Plan will not only clearly articulate our philosophy and approach, but it will also impact the decisions that will be made in the next campus physical plan.

Detailed information about the plan can be found at the Academic Master Plan website.
