Cal Poly Recognized Among Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs for 2020

SAN LUIS OBISPO –– Cal Poly has been named one of the Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs for the third time by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. The university earned the distinction in 2017 and 2019. 

“It is my honor to once again receive this award, because it serves as a testament to the individuals who continue to create a welcoming workplace atmosphere in which everyone feels valued at Cal Poly,” said Keith Humphrey, vice president for Student Affairs. “I’m grateful to them and to all of our campus partners for making this recognition possible. We will continue to work together for a workplace and campus community that is diverse, equitable and inclusive for all.”

Cal Poly was one of 27 universities nationwide — and one of just four in California — recognized for its commitment to workplace diversity, family friendliness, staffing practices, and professional development, among other categories. It was one of three California State University (CSU) campuses to receive the award, along with CSU Channel Islands and Sonoma State University.

A complete list of findings will be published in the March 5 magazine edition of Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.
