Volunteer Service Awards
Dean Edmund Peckham Award for Merit
Annually, the Cal State Northridge Alumni Association presents the Merit Award, recognizing an emeritus or retired member of the faculty or staff who is loyal to and supportive of the university. Recipients of the award have maintained close ties to the college and continue to contribute to the university's mission of supporting and promoting the welfare and intellectual progress of students. In 2008, the award was renamed in honor of its first recipient, Dean Edmund Peckham, for his continued loyalty and support of the university over four decades.
