2007-08 Annual Report on External Support to the CSU

California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Contribution Highlights:

  • Students in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design will enjoy enhanced hands-on experiences and student-faculty interactions with the opening of the 30,000-square-foot Construction Management Building and its 11 laboratories. This new facility was made possible by $3.1 million in private support.
  • The announcement of the largest private gift commitment in the history of the CSU system, a $60 million anonymous bequest to the Department of Architecture, inspired several other donors to establish their legacies to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for a total of another $10 million.
  • Finance faculty in the Orfalea College of Business will hone their knowledge and skills in this rapidly evolving field through professional development made possible by a $500,000 endowment established by Professor Emeritus John Lindvall, founder of Lindvall Capital Management, LLC.
  • Deserving students across California will realize their dream of a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo education thanks to 40 new endowed scholarships that were encouraged by a match from the Orfalea College of Business Endowment created by Kinko's founder Paul Orfalea.
