The mission of Cal Poly Pomona Special Collections and Archives is to collect, organize, preserve and make accessible records of enduring historical value that center around themes relevant to the mission of our university. During these unprecedented times and in the midst of a global pandemic, we want to document the voices and experiences of the CPP community and Pomona Valley and ensure that the experiences of individuals are captured, preserved, and made accessible to our students, members of our research community, and beyond. Our collective experiences regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, social and racial justice protests, and now nearby fires, share valuable insights and personal experiences that should not be forgotten. Such primary materials will serve future researchers at all levels and help to provide rich historical materials that document this moment in time in this place.
