California State University Maritime Academy Alumni Awards

The California State University-Maritime Academy has continually grown since its inception and has produced over seven thousand alumni to date. Whereas the Academy is relatively small when compared with other institutions in the country, the impacts from our alumni are far-reaching and unique.  We find in conversation that it is often difficult to fully describe all of the contributions and positive impact that our alumni have on society, the maritime industry, and our university. We are proud that a large number of alumni deserve recognition for their accomplishments.

In 2003, the Academy created the Distinguished Alumni Award. Recognizing that this award tended to focus on career achievements, but that there were many younger alumni who had made impacts early in their careers, Cal Maritime created the Rising Star Award in 2010. Even these two awards were not sufficient to celebrate the successes of our alumni. In 2015, the Academy expanded the award program further, to include the Lighthouse Service Award, to recognize support and service to Cal Maritime, and the Lifetime Achievement Award to acknowledge prominent lifetime accomplishments in society, industry or in support of the Academy. 

Following are descriptions of these four awards, intended to assist the Alumni Association and the Cal Maritime campus to identify and recognize the contributions and successes of our graduates.  The Alumni Association believes that you will find the categories appropriate and that they will awaken memories of your classmates and friends who are leaders and are deserving of recognition.
