SQE demanded Armstrong speak out publicly against the Sustainable Financial Model, invest in minority education fields and change Cal Poly’s Student Success Fee structure.
Students protested a multitude of topics, including costs associated with the CSU’s new Sustainable Financial Model.
The university added 21 new administrators, but saved a net total of $71,000 through budget restructuring.
“This arrest further reiterates that there is no place for hate at Cal Poly,” President Armstrong said.
“I expect people to voice concerns and ask questions — tough questions. I’m actually on everybody’s side here.”
To maintain the high education quality, Cal Poly currently has, it will require greater financing.
