Institutional Research is improving the delivery of the Fact Book information via a series of graphs and tables available in the link above (Current Fact Book). The graphs and tables contain the data elements found in the previous Cal Poly Fact Book. This new process uses a web graphing solution that displays university-level data in a visual format, providing support for identifying trends. This web-enabled graphing software replaces the Fact Book PDF provided in the past.
