CPX Listening Sessions

WE ARE LISTENING.

Thank you to everyone who attended one of the Cal Poly Experience (CPX) listening sessions. We had a wonderful response, and we appreciate your participation. The sessions were confidential and open to the entire campus community. Different sessions were scheduled to create space for meaningful dialogue. We recognize that people’s identities are multi-faceted and complex. We hope you found a space to share your story.

BACKGROUND ON THE LISTENING SESSIONS

Over three days in March 2019,Dr. Damon A. Williamsand a team of researchers from the Center for Strategic Diversity Leadership and Social Innovation facilitated dozens of listening sessions with constituents and groups across campus to learn more about their Cal Poly Experience. During these confidential sessions, Dr. Williams and his team collected valuable information that will be included in the CPX report that will be released to the campus during theStrategic Diversity Leadership Instituteon October 17 and 18.
