A message from Janet and Richard Fell, USC Price School Parent Co-Chairs . . .

As parent co-chairs of the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy we want to take this opportunity to welcome you and your student to the USC Price School family. We have been connected to the school for several years and are excited by all the opportunities the School has to offer. Our daughter, Sarah, is currently a freshman. We are proud that she will be exposed to study critical public issues and address real, practical solutions. During challenging times like these, we, as parents, should all be comforted to know that our sons and daughters will be given the knowledge and skills to improve the quality of life among communities – locally and globally.

The USC Price School is a very special place. We encourage you to spend some time familiarizing yourself with the school, the various programs, and the research being done here. Our sons and daughters will be working alongside some of the best and brightest faculty in the country, who understand today’s complex societal problems and are here to teach them how to become leaders in their chosen fields. The USC Price School offers useful programs that touch nearly every aspect of society in areas that many of us are involved, including real estate, health, government, non-profit, and urban planning. We encourage you to take advantage of the time your sons and daughters will spend at USC and the Price School. Come for a visit, attend a Dean’s Speaker Series event, listen to a lecture on a timely topic, or read through some of the many fascinating articles published by our faculty.

As you probably are already aware, USC is an amazing place and the Trojan family is unmatched anywhere else. We hope you take advantage of the exciting opportunities the University has to offer to your whole family. We plan on helping to create more opportunities for fellow parents to become engaged with the school and we look forward to staying in touch throughout the year!

Fight On!
