SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – The Cal Poly Corporation Board of Directors approved the largest single contribution in its history with a $5 million contribution to construction of the new Science and Agriculture Teaching and Research Complex.

The move took place during the April 27 board of directors meeting. The proposed building will house collaborative laboratory and teaching space for three colleges: the College of Science and Mathematics, the College of Liberal Arts, and the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences.

Support for this important university project aligns with the corporation’s role and strategic directive to advance Cal Poly’s educational mission. The corporation contribution is made possible by allocating general administration and facility reserve funds available from business and facility operations restructuring.
