Caltech Recruiting's Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity

"Diversity is integral to the values and success of Caltech; it is not an add-on. Universities are in the essential business of attracting the most original, creative, and compelling scholars and creating an environment of unflinching inquiry and challenge. These aspects of academic eminence require faculty, students, and staff from a wide range of backgrounds and with diverse perspectives."

- Thomas F. Rosenbaum, President, Caltech, Sonja and William Davidow Presidential Chair and Professor of Physics
