The CSU Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement continues to flourish thanks to the generous support of our champions.
The vision of our Founding Leaders—the William Randolph Hearst Foundation and Trustee Emeritus Ali C. Razi—laid out a path of success for many CSU students.
The Founding Leaders established this signature award to recognize outstanding achievement across the CSU system.
