Eisner Prize

Vote For the Eisner Prize


Intergenerational Excellence

The USC Population Dynamics Group led by Dowell Myers, are semi-finalists in the Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence! Please take a moment to cast a vote (it literally takes one click of the mouse and 5 seconds) at http://www.eisnerfoundation.org/eisnerprize/

Professor Myers is a favorite of many students so lets all come together to put him and the Center on top! We are behind in votes so we need the whole SPPD community to rally together to vote and spread the word. This would be a wonderful accomplishment for the School as we continue to grow our national presence.

The Eisner Prize is designed to recognize excellence by an individual or a non-profit organization in uniting multiple generations, especially seniors and youth, to bring about positive and lasting changes in their community.
