Dear USC Price Community,
Welcome – especially our new students – to the 2023-24 academic year at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy. We have an exciting year ahead of us, one that promises not only a wealth of education and ground-breaking research but rewarding new connections and collaborations.
The USC Price School is a home for people driven by their ideals. Whether it’s public policy, urban planning, health policy or real estate development, our programs and people are committed to addressing issues burdening people in the United States and around the world. Just as we have done every year since our founding in 1929, we’re setting out this year to make a measurable difference in people’s lives – an exciting calling and one that I hope will be a hallmark of everyone’s experience.
To realize the full potential of the USC Price School, I invite you to be an active member of our community. Please attend our many virtual and in-person events and, for our students, consider joining one of our many student organizations. Students should also connect with our world-class Career Services team.
USC and the Price School strongly support a healthy work-life balance and provide services through USC Counseling & Mental Health Services and USC WorkWell Center. I encourage everyone to use the resources available to ensure a safe, healthy and productive year.
