I Am First Gen Request For Profiles


The Office of University Diversity and Inclusion (OUDI), in partnership with the College of Liberal Arts, is developing a new resource for first generation students on campus. As part of this resource, OUDI is collecting profiles from first-generation faculty, staff, and administrators that includes words of advice and encouragement, and the opportunity to briefly share their stories and academic trajectories. 

If you identify as a first-generation student (someone who was the first in their family to attend and graduate from college), and would like to submit a profile, please click this link to the submission form. If you have any questions or comments about this project, please feel free to contact Ryan Adserias (radseria@calpoly.edu) or Interim Vice President Denise Isom (disom@calpoly.edu).

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
