Access to technology is a necessity for our students to succeed, and you can help a student to reach their academic goals. Virtual education has become the new normal at Cal Poly Pomona, across California and the country. Our students are resilient and understand that their education will provide them an opportunity for a better future. But owning a laptop or having reliable access to the internet can be a financial struggle for some students and not having access to these resources will prevent them from reaching their full potential.
Even after our students are able to return to campus full-time, computers and reliable internet access or vital to their success in the modern educational environment.
In preparation for fall 2020, Cal Poly Pomona surveyed incoming first-year and transfer students to identify their needs. More than 400 students said they do not have reliable access to a computer or other technology.
We are seeking the support from our most trusted partners to help ensure that every Cal Poly Pomona student has the tools they need to pursue their education. Your gift will provide students with the ability to obtain a laptop and a Wi-Fi hotspot device through the Bronco Bookstore, allowing them to stay on the path to success as they learn from home.
