This 2023 Bronco Launchpad effort is CPP CGISR’s first ever fundraising campaign!
Students are the future! They are the next generation of leaders, scientists, artists, and innovators. But their success depends on their access to opportunities to learn, grow, and connect with others in their field.
The Center for Geographic Information Science Research (CGISR) is the hub for spatial and geospatial scholarly and creative activities at Cal Poly Pomona. CGISR facilitates and supports collaborative and interdisciplinary GIScience education, research, and policy endeavors. CGISR facilities support the study of the most pressing societal issues, including environmental and socio-economic phenomena, by offering solutions in Geographic Information Science (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Machine Learning (ML) with spatial analysis and visualization, and cartography. Our mission is to support students, staff, and faculty as they develop novel, polytechnic, and evidence-based GIS and geospatial strategies that enhance knowledge and benefit society. CGISR collaborates with departments and colleges at Cal Poly Pomona to promote compelling geospatial research on campus, develop grant-funded opportunities, and showcase career pathways in GIS. We also support professional networking with local communities and organizations, government partners, public agencies, and private industries and organizations.
Here are some specific examples of how your donation will support Cal Poly Pomona’s CGISR and its research and teaching with students:
Support student research opportunities. Our students are eager to participate in research, but they often need financial assistance to do so. Your donation can help us to provide students with scholarships and stipends, travel grants for presenting their GIS research at professional conferences, and other resources they need to succeed in research and pursue their academic goals.
Fund new student research projects. Your donation can help launch new research projects, support a wider range of research projects, and make even more impactful discoveries that have the potential to make a real difference in the world.
Enhance our teaching and learning facilities. We are committed to providing our students with the best possible learning experience. Your donation can help us to upgrade lab facilities and to purchase new equipment and resources for students.
Join us for CPP's GIS Day on Wed, Nov. 15, 2023. GIS Day is a wonderful opportunity for our diverse students, faculty, staff, local schools, communities & organizations, and public & private industries to get together to share and learn about their amazing work. CPP will celebrate innovative real-world applications of GIS technology in analysis, visualization, and gaining insights into geospatial data through collaboration across campus. We, CPP, want to bridge all possibilities to the future!
