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.
Photography for Development and Institute Relations will take place at the Red Door Cafe between 3 and 4 p.m. on Friday, January 20. This will not affect service.
Faculty and staff members, postdocs, and students can get a flu shot at the Student Health Center on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday from 8:30–10 a.m. and from 1–2:30 p.m. A Caltech ID is required. For those pregnant or breastfeeding a note from a primary care physician is also required to receive the flu vaccine.
The Financial Aid Office and the Career Development Center are working together to expand the Federal Work-Study program. The goal is to provide students with more job opportunities and the Caltech Community with additional student staff at very low cost.
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a program of financial assistance for eligible students that is jointly-funded by federal and departmental contributions. It allows students to work to earn a portion of their college expenses. The Department of Education allocates funds to Caltech to pay 75% of the wages of work-study students so hiring offices only pay the remaining 25% of the wages. Some students have been awarded Caltech Work-Study, in these cases the cost sharing breakdown is 60%-40% Institute and departmental contributions.
If you are interested in hiring a work-study student, use the link below to create an account and start posting your jobs now!
Instructions on how to post a job are available in the Supervisor Guide. Once you have hired a work-study student, please consult the Supervisor Guide for general guidelines on working with work-study students. Should you have any questions regarding the work-study program, please do not hesitate to contact the Financial Aid Office at x6280.
