Join us in celebrating Coming Out Month and showing support for USC’s LGBTQ+ Community by signing the OUTlist! This is a publication of signatures from USC students, faculty, staff, and alumni that serves as a reminder of how large our community is and a way to show support from our allies at USC. Therefore, we invite both folks from the community as well as allies to participate.

You can sign the OUTlist as both an organization and as an individual. Signing the publication will put your name among other individuals based on your designation as student, faculty, staff member, or alumni. Student organizations will also be placed in a special section.
Interest in signing? Please fill out these forms:

On National Coming Out Day (October 11th) we will publish the OUTlist and will be placing it on Trousdale along with the other festivities we will be doing on that day.

Persuasion is central to any conception of deliberative democracy.  But existing research suggests that deliberation can often lead to polarization and conformity rather than a reasoned exchange of ideas and viewpoints.  Prof. Kevin Esterling will discuss exciting new research that develops new approaches to modeling and measuring persuasion in small groups and applies them to a deliberative field experiment in which hundreds of citizens participated in discussions about fiscal policy.  The results suggest that persuasion in such settings can meet many of the normative aspirations of deliberative democracy.
