Achievement Awards

The Berkeley community is filled with people pushing the edges of what’s possible. Business leaders whose achievements have shaped entire industries and benefited humankind; alumni whose dedication to Berkeley has had a profound and lasting impact on students and faculty; young alumni whose early achievements are already showing great promise for their fields or communities. These are the Achievement Award recipients, co-presented every year by the UC Berkeley Foundation and the Cal Alumni Association.

The 2019 recipients will be formally presented with their awards at Berkeley Charter Gala on May 16, 2019. A welcome reception and the awards ceremony will take place at Zellerbach Playhouse, with a sit-down dinner to follow at nearby Pauley Ballroom. The Achievement Awards (listed below) celebrate forward-thinking business leaders, gifted faculty, and dedicated and promising alumni. Visit for more information!
