2015 Honoree: Scott F. Gaudineer
Scott F. Gaudineer, AIA, is the college’s 2015 Honored Alumnus. Gaudineer has served the college in various capacities for many years. A 1979 graduate of the architecture program, he was a founding member of the Daedalus chapter of Alpha Rho Chi (the national architecture fraternity), participated in the student senate, and co-chaired the CAED Student Council. He was a member of the National Honor Society and was a Julia MorganPhoebe Hearst scholarship recipient.
Gaudineer knew he wanted to be an architect by the time he was 11 years old. As president/CEO of Flewelling & Moody, he has overseen the facilitation of numerous K-12 and higher education buildings throughout the state.
“I consider myself so lucky to have been offered the opportunity to attend and graduate from Cal Poly and pursue my passion of creating great school facilities for the next generation. My best days are when I get to create, design and build something special that will make a difference in someone’s life.”
Gaudineer is passionate about supporting the profession he loves, whether through the role of architect advocate or mentoring and supporting students, emerging professionals and citizen architects.
"I derive true joy seeing our students blossom and grow as they matriculate through college and enter their careers," - Scott Gaudineer

Gaudineer chaired the college’s Dean’s Leadership Council from 2011-15, and he and his wife, Leslie Gaudineer (Social Sciences, 1980), are longtime supporters of the college.
