FAQ on Accommodations: The Caltech Disability Coalition developed a document to answer some frequently asked questions about Caltech’s accommodations process. The full document is here: Accommodations FAQ as of Sept 2020. If you want to find out more about the coalition, please email DisabilityCo@caltech.edu.

Health Insurance 101: The GSC Health Subcommittee hosted a presentation explaining the basics of health insurance in the US, how the student insurance plan works, how to navigate the claims process, how the specifics of the plan are decided, and how these decisions affect us as graduate students. The slides from the presentation are here: Health Insurance Workshop 101 Slides. If you want to find out more information, contact the student representatives to Faculty’s Standing Health Committee, Jane Panangaden (panangaden@caltech.edu) and Ashay Patel (appatel@caltech.edu) or Caltech for Affordable Healthcare (CaltechAffordableHealthcare@gmail.com).

How to Plan an Event: During COVID-19 all events on campus are restricted. This guide may be useful if restrictions are lifted in the future, but, again, no in person on-campus events are currently allowed. Caltech Letters generously shared this How to Plan an Event guide with the GSC. For more information on planning events, you may want to contact the GSC Social Chair, Alex Buser (alexbuser@caltech.edu).
