Break Through campaign update

 June 15, 2017


Dear Friends and Colleagues,
 

Break Through: The Caltech Campaign was publicly launched in April 2016. To mark its first anniversary, I am pleased to share a story highlighting our progress on this ambitious fundraising initiative. I invite you to learn more about the programs and people across campus who have been touched by the campaign, and how campaign gifts are empowering our scholars to change the world. I am sure you will recognize some familiar faces. You can read the story here.
 
I am also pleased to report this additional news: The Break Through campaign 
has raised over $1.43 billion to date, officially surpassing the total raised during Caltech's last campaign. Such an extraordinary accomplishment, so early on in our effort, signals how deeply the Institute's mission is resonating with alumni and friends, old and new. In fact, of those who have made gifts to the campaign, nearly 30 percent are first-time donors. This is a promising step toward broadening the base of donors who support Caltech.

Thank you for the important role you play in our Break Through campaign. Please feel free to pass this good news on, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions about the campaign.
 
Sincerely,



Brian K. Lee
Vice President for Development and Institute Relations

Smoking on the Caltech Campus

In response to questions from members of our community regarding smoking on campus, Caltech is participating in an educational campaign to remind our community of the existing municipal codes around smoking in and around buildings.

All individuals on the Caltech campus, including residents, employees, and visitors are subject to adhere to the Pasadena Municipal Code, which includes specific regulations on tobacco use. The city ordinance (8.78) prohibits smoking in all enclosed workplaces, in and around multiunit housing complexes, and within 20 feet of all campus building doorways, windows, and vents. Smoking is further prohibited (ordinance 8.78.085) in all common areas of multiunit housing complexes, such as our student houses, the Catalina Apartments, and other rental properties owned by Caltech. It is important that all members of our community abide by local laws and respect those who wish to avoid secondhand smoke.

Our intent with this communication about smoking is to ensure that all Caltech community members have an appropriate environment where personal choices are not inhibited. It is incumbent upon all community members to be respectful of personal tobacco choices. Likewise, those who choose to use tobacco should attempt to minimize its impact on others, and those choosing to avoid tobacco products should take steps to ensure their own comfort.

Finally, for those who are struggling with tobacco use and would like to quit, Caltech's health care plans offer smoking cessation programs when requested. For Caltech community members who do not participate in our health care plans, alternative plans (e.g., the American Lung Association's Freedom From Smoking program) are available. Please use the following link to get more information on how to stop smoking: https://benefits.caltech.edu/quitsmoking

Caltech is a campus where everyone who lives, studies, and works must experience a welcoming environment. One important part of such an environment requires us to ensure the full rights of individuals within the laws of our society. 

If you have any questions about this announcement, please contact Ken Hargreaves
