Established in 1994, the Vision & Visionaries awards are the highest honors bestowed by California State University, Fullerton on alumni and community honorees. The Vision & Visionaries awardees selected over the years represent distinguished achievement in areas such as academia, the arts, athletics, business, journalism, humanities, and science.
We are not alone in recognizing our Vision & Visionaries award recipients, as professional organizations, the community, and the media often salute their successes as well.
Moreover, the accomplishments of our Distinguished Alumna/nus Award and Recent Graduate Achievement Award honorees are a tribute to the University community who educated, motivated and served them as students. These alumni and community honorees are remarkable individuals whom Cal State Fullerton is proud to call our best and brightest!
