Caltech has renovated the Earle M. Jorgensen Laboratory in the heart of campus into a cutting-edge facility for energy science. It will bring together two clean-energy powerhouses: the Resnick Sustainability Institute and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). Caltech president Jean-Lou Chameau welcomes the public and the campus community to get an inside view of the building and of the research happening there at the dedication on Friday, October 19, at 4 p.m. A reception, tours, and opportunities to talk with researchers will follow the dedication.
The Richard P. Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching is awarded annually "to a professor who demonstrates, in the broadest sense, unusual ability, creativity, and innovation in undergraduate and graduate classroom or laboratory teaching." Nominations for the 2012–13 Feynman Prize are due by January 2, 2013. All professorial faculty are eligible, and nominations may be made by any member of the Caltech community, including faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars, alumni, and staff. For details, go to the provost's website.
Totem, Caltech's literary and visual arts magazine, is now being distributed. All undergrads will receive a copy in their mailboxes in the fall, but anyone else interested in receiving a copy should fill out this form. (Campus mailing addresses are preferred.)
Totem is an annual publication featuring the poetry, photography, short stories, drawings, and other artwork submitted by Caltech community members. The magazine is distributed at no charge to the entire campus and is published in calendar format in an effort to fuse function and aesthetics. Previous editions of Totem can be viewed here. For more information, email email@example.com.
The Caltech Student Investment Fund (SIF) annually awards money to Caltech clubs for equipment purchases and certain club activities. Requests for funding must coincide with the spirit of SIF disbursement philosophies as described on the first page of the funding application. The deadline for applications has been extended by a week to make up for the potential delays in transitioning club leadership roles.
Please submit your application electronically or by mail to Connor Coley at firstname.lastname@example.org or MSC 210 by Friday, June 1, at 11:59 p.m. Also, there may be special cases where your organization, by merit of its services to the community, will be considered for disbursement regardless of the qualifications of its request. Please e-mail Connor Coley if you feel your organization deserves special attention or if you have any other questions about SIF's annual disbursements.
