Dean's Message

Dear Alumni and Friends,


Every day, I am impressed by the accomplishments of CAED students and by their desire to engage with the world. From their award winning performance in national and international competitions, to their volunteer work helping people across the globe improve environments, they are passionate about creating places that transform communities and optimistic about the future.

Thanks to our inspiring faculty, our programs receive national and international recognition, and attract exciting opportunities for collaboration in the U.S. and abroad. This past year CAED faculty and students journeyed to Belize, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, El Salvador, Germany, Ghana, Haiti, Indonesia, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Nepal, Lithuania, France, Portugal, Tanzania, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland, and Uganda!

As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of our founding, it is a good time to reflect honor shared journey—how far we have come as a school and how much we have grown as a community.

I am delighted to announce that we will be hosting annual reunions organized by our wonderful external relations team. If you are a member of any of our alumni classes, you and your families are invited to join me and new graduates from the class of 2017 in June to connect with friends and faculty, and enjoy a little Learn by Doing.

Our students travel far in pursuit of learning, and our alumni’s influence is far reaching, but there is no place like home...All roads lead back to SLO.

I look forward to seeing you at Cal Poly sometime soon,
