CCE DEI Committee
A diverse and inclusive campus creates an environment where our lives are enriched by the different experiences and perspectives of colleagues, our preconceptions are challenged, our research is broadened, and our ideas are refined through the expansive exchange of ideas.
Realizing this environment is essential for Caltech to remain a destination of choice for the most outstanding scholars. It is only when individuals from all backgrounds share equitably in the privileges of the academy that we will realize fully the potential of science and engineering to create knowledge for the ages and improve people's lives today.
The Institute continues to move forward with intention as we build on the solid foundation of our collective efforts. Click here to read more about Institute-wide initiatives and actions.
