The UCSF Campaign Alumni Awards

The Audacious. The Innovators. The Compassionate. The Dedicated. The Pathfinders. 

Throughout UCSF: The Campaign, the Alumni Association of UCSF (AAUCSF) highlighted the outstanding work of UCSF's most illustrious degreed and non-degreed alumni with an exciting new series of awards.

At each of the Alumni Weekend celebrations that occurred during the Campaign, the AAUCSF recognized several living alumni in each of the following award categories. (Winners were selected based on their distinguished service in research and/or education, transforming care delivery, or improving access in order to advance health equity.)

  • The Audacious: This award recognized those who have achieved a singular, remarkable accomplishment by setting a vision so impactful that others might have doubted it could be done.
  • The Innovators: This award honored those whose work has led to unexpected findings or outcomes that resulted in positive changes to the science or health care communities.
  • The Compassionate: This award honored those whose work is marked by boundless empathy, understanding, and caring within health care or science.
  • The Dedicated: This award recognized those who have devoted their careers to inspiring the next generation of scientists and health care providers. 
  • The Pathfinders: This award honored those who have graduated or completed training within the last 10 years. These individuals are relentless in their pursuit of new ideas that push the boundaries of science and health care.
