Cal Poly’s increasing student body
September 17, 2013
Cal Poly has about 1,000 more students slated to attend this year compared to last and a goal of increasing attendance by 4,000 to 5,000 students over the next nine years.
At the annual fall conference on Monday, Cal Poly’s President Jeffery D. Armstrong explained his goal of increasing enrollment in the future. These proposed plans would change enrollment from approximately 20,000 students in 2013 to 25,000 students in 2022.
“Enrollment growth is essential. California – really, the country – needs more Cal Poly graduates,” Armstrong said. “However, the extent, nature and timing of growth are questions that we need to investigate with all of Cal Poly’s stakeholders, on campus and off.”
