Powered by a Commitment to Community

USC University Relations connects the University to its neighbors to solve some of the most pressing issues facing people in Los Angeles, and California more broadly. We work toward a shared vision with surrounding communities where together we:

  • Connect USC students, faculty, and staff to neighbors, community partners, and public officials
  • Support external community partnership and civic engagement efforts
  • Expand and increasing the University’s economic investment in University Park Campus & Health Sciences Campus communities
  • Create and facilitate educational and career opportunities
  • Advance legislative and policy priorities for the university
  • Amplify and share resources to internal and external USC stakeholders

Through collaboration with community members and stakeholders, University Relations advances USC’s role as an anchor institution, community, civic, and cultural convener, supporting other academic schools and departments in advancing their civic impact through meaningful engagement and partnership and in taking measurable actions that are rooted in equity, diversity, collaboration, and creating opportunity for all.
