More sites will be updated in later phases. Users will notice a more user-friendly design, focused less on the organization’s structure and more on the audiences’ needs. Other important changes based on user feedback include:
- Easy links to popular sites in the header and footer. Links to the library, popular online services, each college, and more will be easily accessible from every page
- A scrolling campus topics featuring the biggest news, events and issues happening at Cal Poly Pomona
- A quick view of the local weather

The current site was introduced in 2009, and while it met the university’s needs at the time, university leaders wish to take advantage of new technology and web standards. The design was developed after a series of student surveys and usability tests.
