Cal Poly Pomona And Mt. SAC To Enter Partnership Agreement To Encourage Academic Success And Increase Transfers

Being on adjacent land parcels, Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. San Antonio College have always been neighbors, and have long been partners in education. This April, the two institutions will enter a new partnership agreement intended to increase transfers from Mt. SAC to Cal Poly Pomona and encourage academic success.

Cal Poly Pomona President Bob H. Suzuki and Mt. SAC President Bill Feddersen will formalize the alliance during a signing ceremony 11 a.m. on Monday, April 2, at Mt. SAC’s Student Services Center.

“This is an ideal relationship for both institutions,” Suzuki said. “Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. SAC are here to provide quality education for the local communities. By creating this partnership, we hope to encourage students to continue their academic endeavors.”

The close proximity of the two campuses and shared mission of higher education encourage collaboration. By working together, the two institutions hope to create increased efficiency in seamlessly transferring students from Mt. SAC to Cal Poly Pomona. They will also explore additional partnerships in curriculum, programs, facilities and staffing.

Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. SAC have a history of cooperation in such areas as agricultural sciences, health sciences, theatre arts, student housing accommodations and cooperative library privileges.

“We have a number of partnerships with Cal Poly Pomona, and we’d like to formalize and expand them,” Feddersen said.
