Hima Vatti Pronouns: (she/her/hers) Assistant Vice President Equity, Equity Investigations Title IX Coordinator 205 CSS firstname.lastname@example.org 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. 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.
