He will also serve as CEO of the Cal Poly Foundation, an all-volunteer auxiliary whose mission is to help raise private funds in support of the university’s programs. “The entire Cal Poly community will benefit from Matthew’s fundraising expertise and collaborative approach toward increasing engagement and developing a culture of philanthropy among the campus community, alumni and industry partners,” said Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong. “Cal Poly must continue to add state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and recruit and retain our expert faculty and staff in order to prepare our graduates for success in their chosen fields. At the same time, state higher education funding has dropped over the past four decades, and we have to continue to increase our philanthropic efforts to provide the unique hands-on experience for which this university is nationally recognized.
