Academic Programs and Planning Mission
The mission of the Academic Programs Office is to support the development, delivery and continuous improvement of academic programs that help our students achieve University and program learning objectives.
Our office facilitates academic planning for new and existing degree programs, manages the accreditation and program review process for all of Cal Poly’s academic programs, and oversees the University’s Instructionally Related Activities program (IRA). In addition, the office is responsible for developing academic policies, implementing system-wide California State University (CSU) initiatives and conducting reporting to meet all accountability requirements.
