[March 17, 2020] – Presently, there are no cases of COVID-19 linked to Cal Poly Pomona. Based on guidance from the CSU Chancellor's Office, recent announcements by Gov. Gavin Newsom, and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the university called for greater social distancing and other preventative measures, immediately effective on March 17.
The university initially instituted a temporary pause of face-to-face instruction between March 13 and March 17, to allow instructors to prepare for alternative modes of virtual instruction. When classes resume on March 18, the transition to virtual and/or remote modes of instruction will be in effect for the rest of the semester. This applies for all course types — lectures, studios, acitivity, laboratories and independent study. ENV students with questions about their classes are encouraged to communicate with their home departments.
All college events, including department lecture series, are cancelled. The university has postponed all 2020 Commencement ceremonies (May 15, 16 and 17).
Given the fast-breaking developments of the coronavirus outbreak, it is important for the Bronco community stay current. Find campus status alerts and time-sensitive information for students and employees at www.cpp.edu/healthalert.

What is Environmental Design?
Environmental design studies the relationships we have with the built and natural environments, and the ways human interactions affect the surrounding environment. We encounter expressions of environmental design in our daily lives: the buildings in which we dwell; the green spaces we enjoy; the cities and roads we traverse; and forms of visual design that translate and deliver complex ideas.
The College of Environmental Design (ENV) at Cal Poly Pomona offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban and regional planning; undergraduate degrees in art history and visual communication design; and a minor and graduate degree in Regenerative Studies. It also manages operations of two permanent University Art Galleries, the W. Keith & Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery and the Don B. Huntley Gallery.
ENV uses the rich creative economy and cultural capital of Southern California – and its geographical advantage as a global gateway for trade and ideas – to prepare students for successful careers. We educate and train future designers to be problem-solvers who are socially conscious and environmentally aware, concerned with craft and justice, and technically and technologically sophisticated. The strength of our programs are consistently reflected in national rankings.
