The Career Development Center helps students write their résumés and sponsors job fairs and other programs to help them find employment or apply to grad schools.
The Caltech Center for Diversity (CCD) provides policy and programming support for the campus' initiatives associated with student access, equity, and inclusion. The center supports activities that enhance the inclusion of underrepresented, underserved, and minority students, as well as women and lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students in all aspects of campus life. The CCD collaborates with the Caltech community and student affairs to ensure students are actively engaged and able to access the resources that help them achieve their academic and personal goals.
Techers can get involved in all sorts of community service projects through the Caltech Y (an independent organization formerly, but not currently, affiliated with the YMCA/YWCA). The Y also organizes outdoor adventures, social activities, and educational programs for the student community.
There are a number of offices that assist students with healthy living habits. The Health Center provides students with medical services and counseling on a drop-in basis and by appointment. The Counseling Center has a staff of professional therapists who provide psychological counseling at no cost to students, and The Health Education Office provides resources to help students develop a healthy lifestyle for mind, body, and spirit.
The Dean's Office staff offers information and advice about all things academic: eligibility and standing, leaves and reinstatements, atypical unit loads, and problems related to academic performance.
