Hima Vatti Pronouns: (she/her/hers) Assistant Vice President Equity, Equity Investigations Title IX Coordinator 205 Center for Student Services email@example.com 626-395-3132 Meet Hima
What is my role? As Caltech's Assistant Vice President for Equity and Title IX Coordinator, I lead the Equity Team in fostering an academic, professional, and social environment at Caltech that is safe and respectful, in compliance with Caltech's anti-discrimination policies and procedures, including the Sex- and Gender-Based Misconduct Policy and related Sexual Misconduct Procedures for addressing complaints of sexual harassment, sexual violence, and other sexual misconduct. I oversee and participate in our team's engagement with students, postdocs, staff, and faculty. Why is this work important to me? At bottom, a commitment to equity and non-discrimination requires each of us to make the effort to be a little braver and kinder in our lives each day; for me, that's a personal challenge that makes each day meaningful and happy.
Fun fact about me. I love animals, especially my rescue mutts Sparky and Frances and…tigers! I avidly follow the latest research and information concerning the conservation of tigers in India. I keep a close and hopeful eye on their presently increasing population.
