1990s – present
Swanton Pacific Ranch in Santa Cruz County is donated by alumnus Al Smith in 1993, increasing the campus by 3,200 acres. After several revisions to the 1962 Master Plan, a new Master Plan is proposed and approved in 2001, projecting the next 20 years of campus growth. The 1
Performing Arts Center and the 2
Recreation Center open. New dormitories are constructed near Poly Canyon and at the Grand Avenue entrance. New laboratories, athletic facilities and buildings are constructed with generous donations from alumni and campus supporters. With the opening of the 3
Baker Center for Science and Mathematics in 2013, Cal Poly completes most of the projects planned in 2001, launching a new Master Plan process looking forward to 2022.
