President's Diversity Awards

The President’s Diversity Awards celebrates members of the Cal Poly community who have exhibited a commitment to diversity. The awards are an opportunity to recognize individual members from the faculty, staff, and student communities as well as contributions from a recognized student organization and university group.

This year's awards took place on May 10th, 2018 in the PAC Lobby. We honored the finalists and announced the recipients at the awards ceremony. Special guest, Dolores Huerta, was in attendance and made closing remarks.
