The Price School, in partnership with the Viterbi School on Engineering, is home to USC CREATE, the nation’s first homeland security center. In addition, USC Price experts from its Safe Communities Institute have met with officials from more than 50 countries to engage in dialogue on countering violent extremism.
“If we are to enhance social morality, responsibility and community integrity with the intended outcome of facilitating community-based efforts to identify and explore solutions to violent extremism, it begins with acknowledging and removing policies cultivating animosity and stoking alienation.”
“I’m excited about this program because I strongly believe that we as public safety leaders need to have conversations to understand and become better with our society and public safety, especially today. I challenge all my fellow students that we will go back and share these experiences… so we can become bigger, stronger, collaborate and become a more united community.”

Its mission is to improve security through the development of advanced models and tools for the evaluation of the risks, costs, and consequences of terrorism and to guide economically viable investments in homeland security.
The USC Safe Communities Institute engages in research, interdisciplinary education, and collaboration to advance sustainable “whole-of-community” public safety strategies, policies, and programs.
