Alumni Association - Pace Setters Scholarship

As the official organization for retired faculty and staff of Cal Poly Pomona, including the Foundation, and ASI, Pace Setters was founded by President Hugh O. La Bounty. The first Pace Setters president was Professor Emeritus C. Edwin
Harwood, who retired in 1980 from the English & Foreign Languages Department. In May 1981, the first Pace Setters luncheon was held as a “reunion” of retired faculty and staff, with nearly 50 retirees in attendance.
Today, there are more than 1,000 retired faculty and staff from Cal Poly Pomona and more than 150 of them are dues-paying members of Pace Setters.

Since its inception, Pace Setters strives to develop programs and activities for the benefit of its members, including promoting fellowship, engaging in university activities, supporting student scholarships, and other mutually beneficial relationships between all campus entities. Pace Setters appreciates students who show that Cal Poly Pomona spirit by providing leadership and being actively involved in campus activities.
