The tradition of recognizing outstanding Cal Poly Pomona alumni began in 1961 with only one alumnus or alumna chosen annually for outstanding academic, professional or community achievement. It has evolved into seven individuals nominated and chosen by seven different colleges each year.

Cost to attend the banquet is $40 per person (Business attire required). To secure your reservation, contact Alumni Affairs at (909) 869-2963 or e-mail cpalumni@cpp.edu.
