Dr. Fred Shair Award for Programming Diversity
The Dr. Fred Shair award is given to individuals who stand out as strong supporters of programs that increase the diversity and pluralism in practice at Caltech. Dr. Shair was a member of the Chemical Engineering faculty. One of his great accomplishments and contributions to the campus was the creation of the Summer Undergraduate Research (SURF) program in 1979. He later included high achieving students from campuses across the country in an effort to support equity in access to Caltech’s research communities.

The Dr. James King Jr. award is given to individuals who stand out as strong supporters of diversity within the Caltech student body. Dr. King is the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Caltech in chemical physics (at that time it was chemistry and physics).
