Professor for a Day

March 7-11, 2022  

Since 1998, Cal Poly Pomona's Alumni Professor for a Day Program has provided a unique experience for alumni and students. Alumni are invited back to campus to teach a class.

One of this program's goals is to provide students with an opportunity to interact with alumni and learn first-hand how their education applies to the real world. Alumni are asked to share their experiences in regard to their career path and profession.
