To: Civil Engineering and Construction Department Students and Faculty

From: Cal Poly Pomona American Society of Civil Engineers (CPP ASCE)

Subject: Notice of Cancellation - Department Graduation and Order of the Engineer (OTE)

Dear Students and Faculty,

CPP ASCE is committed to protecting the health and safety of our members and event participants. In response to the developing situation of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have closely monitored the  situation with the University, the CSU, and Society-Level ASCE along with state and federal officials. Under the current direction and instruction from both campus administration at Cal Poly Pomona and the CSU, there are several immediate actions we must take for our spring semester events.

It is with deep regret that we must cancel both our Civil Engineering/Construction Department Graduation and Order of the Engineer (OTE). This comes from the University and CSU mandate to cancel all events and gatherings on or off campus with more than 50 participants through May 31, 2020.

We understand that these decisions impact our students in many ways, and want to especially acknowledge our graduating seniors, who along with their family members and friends will be greatly disappointed by this decision.

We recognize the many hours, hard work, and devotion that have gone into your projects, and we are committed to finding ways to recognize and showcase your achievements in the months ahead. You are very important to the mission and value of our department, its students and this campus.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work collectively to keep our campus and our community safe and healthy. If there are any questions regarding upcoming events, please feel free to contact us at

Best Regards,

Seema C. Shah-Fairbank, P.E., Ph.D.
