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; and young alumni whose early achievements are already showing great promise for their fields or communities. Each year, the university honors forward-thinking business leaders, gifted faculty, and dedicated and promising alumni with the Achievement Awards, co-presented by the UC Berkeley Foundation and the Cal Alumni Association.

The 2022 recipients were formally presented with their awards at the Berkeley Charter Gala on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
