Alumni from the California Maritime Academy have helped to bring the Academy to a new level through their work and loyal support.
The California Maritime Academy’s Alumni Association has established two awards recognizing alumni who have made outstanding contributions and achievements in their professions and to CMA. These awards are the Distinguished Alumni Award and the Rising Star Award. Further, it is a means to recognize and honor non-alumnus individuals or organizations for their significant contributions to the goals and objectives of The California Maritime Academy or its Alumni Association.
The Distinguished Alumni Award was established in 2003 and honors alumni who have made significant contributions to the maritime industry, their chosen profession, and/or to Cal Maritime over the course of their careers. Learn more about the 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient.
The Rising Star Award was created in 2010. The Rising Star Award recognizes recent graduates who have demonstrated energy, creativity and leadership skills within their own career or in support of Cal Maritime. The Rising Star displays characteristics that confirm it does not necessarily take a lifetime to make a mark on society. Learn more about the 2011 Rising Star Award Recipient.
U.S. News and World Report ranks Cal Maritime as the number one best public college in the western region in 2013.
