 The Cal Poly Corporation was renamed Cal Poly Partners as of Feb. 9 to follow “its mission to inspire, empower and push boundaries so that students, faculty and staff thrive” according to a university news release.

Cal Poly Partners supports more than 300 programs and encourages the school’s Learn By Doing philosophy, Cal Poly Partners Chief Executive Officer Cody VanDorn said in the release. 

The name change supports its role as a nonprofit, which has existed for over 80 years and is “dedicated to advancing Cal Poly” using a “flexible business model and willingness to take on challenges,” according to the Cal Poly Partners website.
