Statement in Response to Litigation

Regarding the announcement by a member of the faculty concerning her intent to pursue litigation against the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), the following statement has been issued:

Caltech intends to vigorously defend this lawsuit, which is meritless.  The institution is confident in its compliance with export control laws and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and regularly cooperates with government agencies, including the FBI, as appropriate.

The plaintiff, who was dissatisfied with the outcome of a recent internal campus investigation into her decision to list her cat as the author of a published abstract and omit recognition of a postdoctoral scholar who performed related research, suffered no retaliation and remains an active faculty member of the institution.

Kick-Off of the Hameetman Center Renovation on Wednesday, November 14, 2012

All members of the Caltech community are cordially invited to a short program celebrating the Kick-Off of the Hameetman Center Renovation on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.

The program will begin at 4 p.m. on the south side of Winnett Student Center (the future Hameetman Center) along the Olive Walk and include remarks from Caltech President Jean-Lou Chameau and Vice President for Student Affairs Anneila Sargent.  After the program, there will be light refreshments for all guests.

The Hameetman Center will create a shared gathering space where students and all members of the Caltech community can interact across residential and academic barriers, and build lasting friendships that enhance the Caltech experience and culture.  Among many upgrades being considered are the creation of an open, versatile lounge and common area on the ground floor; a new music rehearsal room and dance studio; an interior stair and elevator core to unify all three floors; and an enlarged outdoor patio with barbecues, heating lamps, and electrical outlets.

We hope you will join us to celebrate the establishment of this exciting new Center and Fred & Joyce Hameetman's commitment to sustaining a strong and connected campus community.
