Student Faculty Conference

The Student-Faculty Conference is an all-day forum discussion between students and faculty about individual options and undergraduate academics as a whole. The feedback and suggestions that come out of the SFC shape the future of academics and student life around campus. It is held biennially as a measure of self-scrutiny and review of Caltech education and student life.

In the fall, ARC appoints members of SFC Committees, made up of students and faculty. The committees spend a term analyzing individual aspects of academics or campus life, and lead a discussion on their findings at the SFC. Each SFC Committee then works to implement their recommendations and feedback from SFC and writes a short report summarizing their work.

The 2019 SFC will be held on Friday, March 8th. The SFC option committee chairs are listed below. The special committee topics will be announced soon.
