The mission of this site is to communicate USC’s long history of access and opportunity as well as our efforts to get better meeting the needs of a diverse and inclusive community. As our community grows increasingly diverse it becomes more important that we be intentional about communicating our challenges and progress. Several diversity initiatives have been in place and new ones launched to reflect the evolving needs of our community. The purpose of this website is to communicate what we are doing with USC students, faculty, staff, and friends.
