Science & Mathematics (COSAM)

Enriching lives through learning, discovery and innovation.

The College of Science and Mathematics cares deeply about the success of our students. We believe in the power of Learn by Doing to provide a challenging and inspiring education through authentic and ongoing collaboration of faculty and staff with students.

Each year hundreds of our students participate in opportunities such as undergraduate research, service learning and study abroad. This campaign will build the resources necessary for all of our students to be involved in these high-impact learning activities, which we know provide rich and robust opportunities for personal and professional growth. We will become a national model for faculty and student collaborative learning, and a destination college for students who want to engage in a vibrant community of scholarship, service and action. By enriching lives through learning, discovery and innovation, our students become tomorrow’s leaders in industry, government and academia — and they grow Cal Poly’s impact on the world.
