Leo T. McCarthy Award

The Leo T. McCarthy Award for Public Service is named after the center's founder, who was a former California lieutenant governor and state assembly speaker. Known as a champion of justice, he founded USF’s McCarthy Center to prepare the next generation of ethical leaders.

The award is given bi-annually to an individual whose work makes a difference in the lives of people most affected by injustice. It recognizes persons of significant accomplishment who continue to advocate for progressive change serving the common good.
