Student-Community Liaison-Committee Application

History of SCLC

The Student-Community Liaison Committee (SCLC) was formed in spring of 1987 to address issues regarding the community and Cal Poly students. It was envisioned that the chair should be the Cal Poly student body president to demonstrate parity between students and city officials. In 1988 SCLC was expanded to include representatives from Cuesta College. Thanks to the support from several areas (City departments, Chamber of Commerce, Residents for Quality Neighborhoods, and other Cal Poly organizations). SCLC was acknowledged as a key link in communication between students and the City & County of San Luis Obispo.
