Olive Walk
  • Public Event

Join us for an afternoon of celebration and reflection as the Caltech community marks the dedication of Grant D. Venerable House, an undergraduate student residence named in the fall of 2021 in honor of late alumnus Grant D. Venerable (BS '32). Venerable was the first Black undergraduate student to graduate from Caltech and was an active student leader and athlete during his time on campus.

This dedication, which is open to all members of the Caltech and Pasadena communities, will be held outside of Venerable House, along the Olive Walk, on Friday, October 21, 2022, at 2 p.m. The event will include a brief program with remarks from Caltech president Thomas F. Rosenbaum, members of the Venerable family, and campus leaders. Refreshments will be served.

The dedication is the culmination of the hard work of many Caltech students, faculty, staff, alumni, and others who came together to reflect on and deliberate about Caltech's past and to help chart a future that reflects and supports the Institute's continuing commitment to cultivate a thriving, supportive, and inclusive community of scholars.

This event is open to members of the Caltech and local community. No advance registration is necessary.
