In 1998, he and his wife founded the Leon & Sylvia Panetta Institute for Public Policy at California State University, Monterey Bay, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit center that helps prepare students for public service careers.

Among Panetta’s many awards are an Army Commendation Medal, the Peter Burnett Award for Distinguished Public Service, the Paul Peck Award and honorary doctoral degrees from University of Wisconsin-Parkside and Northeastern University.
