Academic Programs and Planning is pleased to share the news that Bruno Giberti has accepted the position of Associate Vice Provost (AVP) in the office of Academic Programs & Planning (APP). As an important part of our team, he will share responsibilities for academic planning; the development and implementation of academic policies; the review of academic programs; and the maintenance of the university’s regional accreditation. He will also provide administrative oversight for university-level assessment, as well as for General Education, the Honors Program, and Service Learning.
Bruno is a proud Cal Poly grad (BS Architecture, 1980), with a Master of Architecture (1989) and a PhD in Architecture (1994) from UC Berkeley. He worked in architecture and in architectural journalism before starting his academic career at Cal Poly in 1994 as a lecturer in the Architecture Department. He has been a tenured professor since 2006, and a California registered architect since 2008.
In 2007, he worked with APP as Faculty Director of the WASC self-study. With the reaffirmation of the university’s accreditation for ten years, he became Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning and then the Associate Head of the Architecture Department. In 2012, he rejoined the APP staff as the Faculty Associate for Academic Policies, Assessment, and Accreditation. In 2017, he accepted the role of interim AVP.
We greatly value the contributions Bruno will bring to our team with his insight, dedication to Cal Poly, and warm and engaging personality. We are pleased he is part of the Academic Programs & Planning team.
Please congratulate him when you see him!
