CAL POLY POMONA Cal Poly Pomona was originally established in 1938 as an all-male division of the California State Polytechnic College in San Luis Obispo. It was located on 150 acres of land in San Dimas on the site of the former Voorhis School for Boys. In 1949, breakfast cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg deeded 813 acres of land located three miles south of this campus to the state of California. In 1956, 508 students and 44 faculty and staff moved from San Dimas to the newly established Kellogg campus, and in a first for the all-male campus, 329 women joined the student body in 1961. The Pomona campus officially separated from the San Luis Obispo campus in 1966 and became the site of Cal Poly Pomona today. University status was granted in 1972. Today, Cal Poly Pomona employs 3,000 faculty and staff who support the education of nearly 26,000 students.

Furthermore, nearly 80% of students receive financial aid and a significant number work part-time, many in career-related positions. The campus¿s four-year graduation rate was 29.7% for the 2014 cohort, and the six-year graduation rate was approximately 71.2% for the 2012 cohort. The average age of a Cal Poly Pomona undergraduate student is 22 years.

To that end, it recognizes that students who solve classroom problems today have an advantage solving real world problems tomorrow. Employing a teacher-scholar model remains the faculty's top priority, creating opportunities for students to use their knowledge in hands-on projects, collaboration in research, and participation in valuable internships and service-learning programs. As a result, Cal Poly Pomona¿s graduates are sought after as strong practitioners, integrative thinkers, and model leaders, and they are among the top 20 in the nation in terms of mid-career salaries.

About the Don B. Huntley College of Agriculture The Don. B. Huntley College of Agriculture is one of the four colleges of agriculture in the California State University System and the only one located in Southern California. It is the sole provider of comprehensive agricultural programs focusing on the needs of the $1 trillion Southern California economy and its 21 million people.

The College¿s rich history, its geographic location, and the impact that faculty, staff, and students have made locally and across the state have established a solid foundation to build on. The Dean will be responsible for honoring this legacy, extending and enhancing the college¿s impact, ensuring the sustainability of its programs and services, and developing a forward-looking and innovative vision to lead the College into its next era of excellence.

Invest in students to ensure academic and professional success The Dean¿s principal responsibilities will be to promote Cal Poly¿s mission of ¿Learn by Doing¿ through excellent, hands-on educational opportunities in a comprehensive polytechnic setting, generating career-ready graduates. The next Dean will build on the College¿s commitment to attracting and retaining high quality students from diverse backgrounds. To successfully achieve this goal, the Dean must understand and be sensitive to the different potential obstacles to recruiting and retaining students and utilize that understanding to create strategies and tools for the College to use to attract a strong, vibrant, and diverse student population. Further, the Dean will ensure a supportive infrastructure is in place to keep students engaged, help them reach their individual academic and professional goals, see them through to graduation, and assist them in job placement. Once students are enrolled, the Dean¿in partnership with faculty and staff¿will work tirelessly to provide them with a world-class, hands-on learning experience. This includes identifying and securing funding for students, frequent and transparent communications, robust and relevant curricula, and opportunities for research and industry engagement. Recruit, retain, and develop diverse faculty and staff The College will only be successful if it can continue to recruit and retain talented faculty and staff. By fostering a sense of community and shared purpose within the College, the Dean will greatly assist in these efforts, but the Dean will also need to engage faculty and staff in meaningful conversations around how to creatively and strategically address their needs in a resource limited environment. The Dean will evaluate the infrastructure of the College on an ongoing basis and adapt it as necessary in support of faculty and staff while fulfilling the College¿s strategic ambitions. The Dean will work with College and University leadership to strike the appropriate balance of teaching and scholarship for all faculty, as well as to ensure the right student-to-faculty ratio for the College is achieved. Increase external partnerships and fundraising As a representative of the College, the Dean will be a leading voice locally and across the state. The Dean is supported by the Dean¿s Advisory Council to connect the College with external partners and to gather feedback on industry needs. An ambassador for the value and the success of the College, the Dean will grow external relations with industry, nonprofits, and other institutions and create public-private partnerships. This will begin with¿but develop beyond¿increased partnerships with varied industries in Los Angeles County, gaining visibility and prominence for the College in Southern California and beyond. The Dean will also formulate a long-term fundraising vision and be able to communicate this vision to all constituencies. Currently, the College¿s donor base is comprised primarily of individuals affiliated with the traditional agriculture disciplines. The Dean will work with University Advancement to diversity the funding base and engage with alumni and donors across all of the College¿s disciplinary areas. The Dean will also identify opportunities to collaborate with other colleges and units on the Cal Poly campus and other educational and community organizations in the area. Serve as a visible and vocal leader, spokesperson, and advocate for the College As the public face and representative of the College, the Dean will be a powerful advocate for its successes and its needs. The Dean will broadcast accomplishments across all departments, championing excellent teaching, research, and community engagement in established fields while advancing and promoting interdisciplinary initiatives. In doing so, the Dean will reinforce the importance of the University and community¿s ongoing commitment to the College and to enabling students to thrive in their academic and professional journeys and faculty to thrive as world-class teacher-scholars. Nationally, agriculture programs are at risk due to high education delivery costs, but their impact on the community is invaluable. Much of the College¿s work directly impacts the community and enables the University¿s commitment to strengthening the world it inhabits. The Dean will articulate the value proposition of the College and promote its reputation, impact, and potential, not just across the University, but also across the state. A successful candidate must be able to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences and will have a proven track record in establishing relationships with community leaders, higher education organizations, nonprofits, funding agencies, foundations, private sector entities, and professional societies. Strengthen infrastructure to support the College¿s work The Dean will work to ensure that the College has the infrastructure¿people, processes, and space¿to deliver on its mission. The issue of space is a significant challenge for the College: its physical home needs significant maintenance, additional space for faculty and staff, and classroom renovations. Additionally, the Dean must work to increase availability and accessibility of existing space for individuals and groups to work, organize, network, and build community.
