Your Impact - 2017

YOUR IMPACT - The College of Liberal Arts Magazine

Dear CLA Alumni and Friends:

Doug Epperson Headshot

Your Cal Poly Pride and many achievements in life inspire me, our students and others throughout the college and university on a daily basis. I have never known alumni who are prouder of their university or more accomplished in their personal and professional lives. In this publication, you will read about alumni whose Cal Poly Pride is demonstrated through their continued and lasting support for the College of Liberal Arts and the departments they once called home. You will also read about another alumnus who was so inspired by Cal Poly students that he and his wife funded a much-needed broadcast studio upgrade. 

When current students see alumni, who once stood where they stand today, investing in the future of Cal Poly, it strengthens their confidence and bolsters their own pride in the university. The impact of your support may not be easily seen from outside of campus, but I hope the handful of stories in this magazine inspires you to make a difference by investing in the College of Liberal Arts and its students, faculty, programs, and/or facilities. 

As we celebrate the spirit of Cal Poly supporters, we also turn our attention to the future and the steps it will take to sustain and build on our history of excellence. Consider this your invitation to join us and your fellow alumni in creating and sustaining environments that optimize innovation and success for future students — that continue to fill you with pride in your alma mater.

Best regards,
Douglas Epperson
Dean, College of Liberal Arts
