Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is seeking to fill 165 positions putting the brakes on years of class and staff reductions.
The California State University system is under pressure to hire more full-time professors in an attempt to increase student success by helping them to move through the system faster.

Expecting an all-time number of students in the fall, over 760,000, the Cal State system is seeking to hire 700 new full-time teachers. A $124 million increase in state funding last year will help pay teachers’ salaries.
Cal Poly is currently advertising to fill 99 faculty positions, 47 staff positions and 19 management positions.
