Cal Poly Report — Nov. 2, 2016


Researchers Honored for a Record $32 Million in Grants in 2015-16

Faculty and staff who received a record $32 million in grants and whose research resulted in five patents for the university in the 2015-16 academic year were honored at an Oct. 27 award reception. "I just want to say how proud I am of the work that you are all doing," said Dean Wendt, dean of research in the Office of Research and Economic Development, to some 80 faculty and staff members gathered at the annual reception. "We are celebrating an unprecedented year of externally funded research activity at the university." Funding for new grant awards was up by 20 percent over last year, and "ranks as the highest amount of external funding on record at Cal Poly," Wendt added. Research grants also had these benefits, he said: paid more than $250,000 in tuition, fees and scholarships for students; purchased more than $650,000 in lab equipment; supported the wages of 58 employees through the Cal Poly Corporation; and paid $1.8 million in wages to more than 800 students. President Armstrong was impressed with the faculty who apply for the grants and the staff in the Sponsored Programs and Grants Development offices that administer them. "You are impacting lives," he said. "You are helping students succeed. And your careers are just blossoming and growing. It's very, very exciting." Five university centers that each receiving more than $1 million were singled out: Irrigation Training and Research Center, Center for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education, Institute for Advanced Technology and Public Policy, Center for Coastal Marine Sciences, and STRIDE. In addition, four individuals who secured a combined $50 million in grant funding over their Cal Poly careers were honored. Stuart W. Styles and Charles M. Burt, director and chairman of the board, respectively, for Cal Poly's Irrigation Training and Research Center, each has procured more than $20 million in external funding. Sam Blakeslee, IATPP director, and Trevor Cardinal, an associate professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Regenerative Medicine Program, each has procured $5 million in grant funding.

Student Success

English Major Wins Prize for Song Inspired by Her Romantic Literature Studies

Maria Woodson, a fourth-year English major from Elk Grove, recently won the $1,000 grand prize in the Protest Song Songwriting Contest. The competition is sponsored by San Luis Obispo-based nonprofit Ecologistics Inc., which seeks to create environmentally and economically sustainable communities on the Central Coast. The musician won for her haunting melody "Daffodils," which is inspired by William Wordsworth 1804 poem of the same name and wife Dorothy's work "Thoughts on my Sick-Bed." "I kind of just entered on a whim without any expectations, mostly because I figured that I didn't really have anything to lose," Woodson said. "I wrote this after studying Romantic literature that focused on pastoral imagery. My biggest hope is that people will listen to my song and get the unquenchable urge to go outside — or, if they're already outside, to appreciate nature in a similar way that the writers of the Romantic period did. Some of the most profound experiences I have in life stem from appreciating the divinity and beauty of the natural world." She envisions a career that includes writing and music. She works with Songwriters At Play and performs at restaurants, breweries and other venues around the county. Listen to Woodson's award-winning song here. Contestants were asked to create an original song about the impacts of climate change, habitat loss, extinction, or overpopulation on our planet, including animals, ecosystems and humans. You can listen to all 37 songs submitted for the contest and read about the artists by visiting

The play, written by Australian playwright Louis Nowra, is set in a mental institution in Melbourne, Australia, in 1971. In the production, Lewis, a recent university graduate, is hired to direct a play to be performed by the patients. Roy, an ebullient bipolar patient, convinces the group to perform Mozart's opera "Cosi fan Tutti."

Against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, student protests and a free-love movement, Lewis must navigate his relationship with his live-in girlfriend and arrogant friend Nick, a stage director who only participates in "serious" theater. "The play, rich with delightful characters, is a study of human behavior and creative collaboration," said Al Schnupp, director and professor in the Theatre and Dance Department.
