Dear Price Community:
Today I am honored to share that I have been named the new dean of the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy. It has been my privilege to serve the Price School over the past year as interim dean. As such, I am grateful to President Folt and Provost Zukoski for allowing me to continue to serve as the next Dean of the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.
Under the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic, the Price community came together and made a measurable impact through research, teaching, and service. There is no doubt that this dedication to service and impact is a unique strength of our community.
My immediate priority is to welcome our students, staff and faculty back to campus safely in August. Upon return, we will develop a strategic plan to continue to improve the quality of life for people and communities around the world. The social, geographic, economic, health, environmental, and political challenges we face make our mission even more urgent.
It has been an honor to work alongside you, and I am excited about what we will accomplish together in this next chapter in our history.
