"Dunn-Edwards and Ken Edwards in particular are continuing to provide leadership for this important research center," said College of Science and Mathematics Dean Philip S. Bailey. He added that "The WCTC is the only such center on the West Coast, and Cal Poly students, as well as the coatings and polymers industry, will benefit greatly from the modern research facilities."
"The Dunn-Edwards Coatings Formulation Laboratory will be named in perpetuity Of endless duration; not subject to termination.

Cal Poly currently offers an undergraduate degree program with a concentration in coatings science and polymers, as well as an industry-focused Master's Degree in the same area.
This is the second major gift from Dunn-Edwards to Cal Poly's College of Science and Mathematics. In November 2002, the company contributed the lead gift of $500,000 to create the first endowed professorship endowed professorship Chair Academia A university or academic appointment supported by income from an endowment, usually awarded to a person who is already a fully-tenured professor.
