Future Cal Poly students loving science at the "Learn By Doing Lab" on campus April 18, 2018.
I sang, 'Ain't gonna let nobody turn me around' all day long. I've partnered with Cal Poly for 5 years and remarkably, we opened a science-themed high school together last fall with over 90% black students. My students will be Cal Poly ready. Diversity takes commitment. We are in it with Cal Poly for the long haul." - Margaret Fortune
