PULSE

PULSE, under the Campus Health & Wellbeing department within Student Affairs, promotes healthy behaviors and wellness among all members of the Cal Poly community. Peer Health Educators and Coaches are volunteers (unpaid) that receive training to become nationally certified Peer Educators. They are involved in a five-quarter track program beginning in Spring 2021, followed by four quarters of hands-on health education and health promotion experience. PULSE programs consist of topic-specific workshops, presentations, coaching sessions, and tabling outreach and education to the Cal Poly campus.

FOOD PANTRY

The Food Pantry was created out of a need identified by faculty and staff who were seeing an increased number of students going hungry and without the means to purchase basic food and supplies. Cal Poly community members can choose from a wide variety of packaged and canned foods, fresh produce, frozen meals, and personal hygiene products.
