About Us

In September 1891, Pasadena philanthropist Amos Throop rented the Wooster Block building in Pasadena for the purpose of establishing Throop University, the forerunner to Caltech. In November of that year, Throop University opened its doors with 31 students and a six-member faculty. Throop might have remained simply a good local school had it not been for the arrival in Pasadena of astronomer George Ellery Hale. The first director of the Mount Wilson Observatory, Hale became a member of Throop's board of trustees in 1907, and began molding the school into a first-class institution for engineering and scientific research and education.

By 1921, Hale had been joined by chemist Arthur A. Noyes and physicist Robert A. Millikan. These three men set the school, which by then had been renamed the California Institute of Technology, firmly on its new course. Millikan and his successors—Lee DuBridge, Harold Brown, Marvin Goldberger, Thomas Everhart, David Baltimore, Jean-Lou Chameau, and now Thomas F. Rosenbaum—have led the Institute to its current academic and scientific preeminence.

The mission of the California Institute of Technology is to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research integrated with education. We investigate the most challenging, fundamental problems in science and technology in a singularly collegial, interdisciplinary atmosphere, while educating outstanding students to become creative members of society.

Diversity

The mission of the Caltech Center for Diversity (CCD) is to provide policy and programming support for the campus' initiatives associated with student access, equity and inclusion.

The Center's interactions are strategically aligned with objectives to:

Promote and provide access to admission information and campus resources.

Support activities that enhance the inclusion of underrepresented, underserved and minorities (URM), women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students in all aspects of campus life.

Collaborate with the Caltech community and student affairs support services (both on and off campus) to ensure students are actively engaged and able to access resources that help them achieve their academic and personal goals and to graduate from Caltech.
