Diversity is…

A community of people who are made up of different social identities.  Social identities include, but are not limited to: age, disability, gender, gender identity, national origin, race/ethnicity, religion/spiritual practice , sexual orientation, and veteran status. 


To increase awareness of our values in support of diversity and inclusion by communicating consistently and in multiple ways about our immediate and longer-term actions and initiatives.


The Office of University Diversity and Inclusion leads efforts to build diversity and promote inclusion through a collective impact framework that connects with partners and aligns university-wide efforts in order to achieve inclusive excellence; attract and respond to a diverse campus community; and nurture a respectful and inclusive campus climate.


Cal Poly is building a diverse and inclusive campus community to prepare students for the future.
