News Releases



The Red Cross is conducting a blood drive at Caltech Monday, July 15 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be parked in the Winnett Quad. On Tuesday, July 16, the blood drive will be held from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Winnett Lounge (above the Bookstore).

For the second straight year, the Red Cross is experiencing blood and platelet donation levels in June and early July much lower than expected. Donations through the Red Cross were down approximately 10 percent in June 2013, resulting in about 50,000 fewer donations. Your help is especially needed now. Red Cross officials have issued an emergency request for blood and platelet donations. Please encourage donors of all blood types to give – especially types O negative, A negative and B negative.

To register and schedule an appointment, online please go to:

Or call Christine Boyle at Caltech 626-395-1745 or email

Or you can walk-in to the Blood Drive and they can schedule a time for you as time permits.

Thank you!





The Caltech community is participating in a drive in support of the Foothill Unity Center to provide back-to-school supplies for

children of qualified families. There will be drop-off boxes provided in both Human Resources & Keith Spalding buildings.  They are accepting

donations from July 8th thru July 30th.  Please deposit your items in the drop-off boxes Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you have questions, contact Stephanie Hancock at 626-395-2071 or


Red Cross Blood Drive at Caltech

Your donation can help save the life of a patient in need, giving them the chance to create their own summer of stories. Live a story. Give a story. Donate blood or platelets.

Help patients create their summer of stories by donating blood at our blood drive at Caltech on July 15th from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Summer is a time to create lifelong memories. When you give blood or platelets, you could give patients time to make their own memories.

 Show your American spirit this month in honor of Independence Day by donating blood. To help increase interest in donating blood when donations historically drop around summer holidays, all presenting donors July 1-15 will be entered to win one of five $3,000 American Express gift cards!

“When I Die, They’ll Send Me Home”

"When I Die, They'll Send Me Home" – A Human Rights Perspective on Juvenile Justice in California

Elizabeth Calvin │ Annenberg Lecture Hall │ Tuesday, May 21, at 7:30 pm


In California children as young as 14 years old are tried in adult courts and given prison sentences meant for adults. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other international treaties require that children under age 18 be treated differently from adults when accused of a crime. Elizabeth Calvin, Senior Advocate in the Children's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, has been at the forefront of a coalition advocating to change California law so that it reflects the capacity of young people to change and mature. Elizabeth will describe her research and advocacy on juvenile justice in California, as well as the work of Human Rights Watch. As a lawyer, advocate, and author of several Human Rights Watch reports, Elizabeth will also discuss the process and challenges she has faced with collecting data and analyzing the results.


About the Speaker

Elizabeth Calvin is an attorney and Senior Advocate for the Children's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, where she works for the rights of children in the juvenile justice and foster care systems.  An advocate for over 25 years, she investigates human rights violations, publishes findings, organizes others to support a change in law, and lobbies legislators to take action.
