Knowledge in Action

Knowledge plus action can change the world. Our research led to expanding health insurance for 65 million people in India. We helped Southern California create 5,300+ new manufacturing jobs. You’ll find Price researchers working at all levels – local to global – making an impact on the world.

Interdisciplinary, Cross-sectoral Research Centers
The Price School’s research is renowned both for its capacity to apply expertise from multiple fields to a single issue and its depth of contributions to each field. Its interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach to examining major issues of our day contributes to shaping real-world solutions and improving the quality of life for people and their communities, here and abroad. USC Price houses 13 research centers, institutes, and initiatives that cut across all primary degree areas in the school.

“Price School research aims to be relevant and important – not just within the walls of academia, but also in the public and social dialogue of the world.”
