About Us

The Hispanic Business Student Association, now Latinx Business Student Association, was founded in 1984 by an ambitious, first-generation Cal Poly student, Maria Rodriguez-Arvizu. She recognized the need for a place where diverse students could come together to find the support and resources needed to continue to succeed at Cal Poly. Her legacy continues to this day.

Our mission is to increase the representation of Latinx professionals in the field of business. 

LBSA hopes to encourage and promote the development of tomorrow's future leaders from all backgrounds and career fields. LBSA strives to equip every member with the fundamental skills, relationships, and expertise necessary to successfully launch their professional careers from when they join our professional club to their graduation and beyond. We hope to encourage the importance of balancing life, work, and school through fun and engaging events.

LBSA is geared towards fortifying the academic and professional goals of underrepresented students by unifying and empowering our growing community. This said LBSA welcomes students from any of the six academic colleges at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Your major shouldn't limit the development you can make with LBSA.
