To: Caltech Community
From: Anneila Sargent, Vice President for Student Affairs
I am pleased to announce, effective immediately, the appointment of Dr. Felicia Hunt as Caltech's Assistant Vice President for Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion Initiatives, and Title IX Coordinator. In this new Student Affairs position, she will continue and expand Institute efforts to assure an open and inclusive learning, living, and working campus environment. In particular, she will develop and coordinate initiatives that raise awareness of gender equity and sex discrimination issues, ensure that appropriate education and training programs are in place, and manage the process for accommodating students with disabilities. She will also be responsible for ensuring Institute compliance with non-discrimination and harassment laws and policies and for developing appropriate training programs in these areas.
Dr. Hunt came to Caltech in 2007 as Director of the Women's Center. In 2009, she was appointed Associate Dean of Graduate Studies in recognition of the care, consideration, and effectiveness she brought to the Women's Center. As Associate Dean, she has contributed enormously to improving the Caltech graduate student experience, mentoring and guiding in good times as well as in more difficult moments. Dr. Hunt has already taken on the duties of Title IX Coordinator and is well-positioned to meet the new challenges of being Assistant Vice President.
