2021 Scholar Recognition

Scholar Recognition 2021


The Scholar Recognition Magazine is a collaboration between the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and the Learn Through Discovery (LTD) Initiative to recognize Signature Polytechnic Experiences (PolyX) at Cal Poly Pomona. The hallmark of a Cal Poly Pomona education is learn-by-doing. PolyX engages students in learning-by-doing through identifying and implementing solutions to real-world problems and opportunities. This digital magazine highlights students in the LTD Projects Hatchery, those receiving Research Distinction, among other programs. The magazine also celebrates faculty members who have gone above and beyond in mentoring students engaged in PolyX. 

The Scholar Recognition has traditionally been a banquet-style event held each spring semester. The digital magazine format this year and last year reflects the virtual learning environment imposed due to the pandemic. Although the magazine gives a highlight of the different programs, we hope you will take time to view the student experiences via the links provided. We think that you will be inspired and impressed by the passion that Cal Poly Pomona students bring to their projects and the positive impacts they have achieved.
