Students march through campus holding signs saying Say no to censorship and expression is a human right

Find Support

Because Cal Poly Pomona is committed to ensuring all members of our community have the same protections of expression under the First Amendement, this may also mean some expressions have the potential to hurt or offend. While these expressions cannot be restricted, CPP offers many resources for students looking for support.

Office of Student Life and Cultural Centers (OSLCC)

OSLCC helps students organize and plan expression events with event scheduling. Reach out to the office if you are interested in hosting an expression event, or to learn more about University time, manner, and place guidelines.

CPP Listens

Inclusive Excellence LogoIn partnership with the Division of Student Affairs, the office of Inclusive Excellence operates "CPP Listens," an online submission form for students to share their experiences with inclusivity at CPP, both good and bad. 

The CPP Listens Team is comprised of trained and caring representatives from:

  • Student Health & Wellbeing
  • Dean of Students
  • Office of Institutional Equity & Compliance
  • Faculty Affairs
  • Employee Labor Relations
  • University Police

The CPP Listens Team will review submissions primarily to assess campus climate issues and patterns of activity. If the team believes that further action may be needed, it may take additional actions. For example, if a submission appears to suggest a violation of CSU Executive Orders, or a violation of the law, then the team will refer the submission to the appropriate office for further review and action.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

CAPS offers quality mental health services including group or individual therapy, wellbeing coaching, crisis intervention and further connectionst to on and off campus resources.
