On June 13, Delaine Eastin received the UC Davis Medal. This is the highest honor the campus bestows on individuals to recognize extraordinary contributions that embody the campus’s Vision of Excellence.

Delaine joins previous recipients including Gary Snyder, poet; Wayne Thiebaud, painter; Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile; Cruz Reynoso, former justice of the California Supreme Court; Robert and Margrit Mondavi, winemakers and philanthropists; and Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States.
