CEIS Welcomes our New Associate Dean, Dr. Nancy Hurlbut! Dr. Hurlbut, comes to us after 17 years at Humboldt State. At Humbolt, she served in many roles which included Chair of the Child Development Department, a member of the University Curriculum Committee, Interim Dean of College of Professional Studies, Coordinator of Distance Education, and most recently, as one of the University Ombudspersons.
Her scholarship began with a focus on the relationship between social emotional cognitive development across the lifespans. Her scholarship has progressed into a focus on Early Care and Education (ECE) and pedagogies that provide optimal access.
She just completed a 1.5 million dollar contract with the Child Development Division of the California Department of Education in which she and eleven faculty from California Community Colleges and 5 other CSU's developed a web-based program (the ECE Mapping Tool) to align Early Care of Education (ECE) Programs with the new California ECE competencies.
She has two children, who recently graduated from the CSU system. For fun, she works with animals (eg., horses and cats) and likes to try new things. For instance, a year ago, Nancy and her two children went sky diving in Monterey.
Dr. Hurlbut is very xcited about joining the Cal Poly Pomona community! She is looking forwrd to supporting the CEIS mission, and collaborating in the development of the new early care and education program.

Dr. S. Terri Gómez received a CSU Chancellor's Office Grant to promote student academic success. The proposed PolyTransfer Program, will be a comprehensive recruitment, retention, and transitional program for transfer students. The purpose of the program is to increase the persistence and graduation rate of underrepresented and first-generation transfer students. This purpose will be accomplished by implementing specific supports and strategies to develop a “transfer receptive culture,” which is defined as an institutional commitment by a four-year college or university to provide the support needed for students to transfer successfully – that is, to navigate the community college, take the appropriate coursework, apply, enroll, and successfully earn a baccalaureate degree in a timely manner. This institutional effort will require collaboration with our local community colleges to foster a successful transfer process.
