Strategic Plan

Our Journey to the Future

President Soraya ColeyOver the course of 80 years, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona has sustained a profound commitment to creativity, discovery and innovation. This legacy serves as the inspiration for the bold institutional vision found in our Strategic Plan 2017-2025.

Drawing on the spirit of collaboration that has defined our university for eight decades, the Strategic Plan coalesces the aspirations and expertise of faculty, staff, students, alumni, parents, community members and campus partners collected over the course of nearly 30 open forums and focus groups and more than 10,000 survey responses. The result is a comprehensive plan that defines our mission, declares our vision and affirms our values.

Any plan’s true value lies in its execution. Through five strategic initiatives, our plan delineates specific outcomes, goals and objectives that are concretely stated and readily measurable to facilitate success and accountability. Likewise, regular reporting on the objectives will keep the campus community updated on our progress.

As the most diverse university of its kind in the nation, Cal Poly Pomona aspires to be the model for an inclusive polytechnic university. The Strategic Plan provides the blueprint for this goal.

As we push forward on this journey, I express gratitude to everyone who contributed to the strategic plan, as well as to those who have been part of the first 80 years of our growth and development.
