The California Prize for Service and the Common Good recognizes groundbreaking achievement and significant service to the poor and marginalized. Each year, the university presents the California Prize to an outstanding organization or person who models selfless service in pursuit of the common good.
The California Prize is USF’s way of rewarding, honoring, and celebrating the work of those who share our commitment to create a more just and humane world.
The 2016 California Prize award gala and dinner is May 12. At the signature event, USF connects change makers on campus to statewide champions of the common good by bringing together philanthropists, civic dignitaries and university leaders to honor this year's awardee, who will be announced in February.
