I am so thrilled to be taking a leadership role with the USC Associates. As the University of Southern California’s premier academic support group, the USC Associates truly exemplify the loyalty, commitment and generosity of spirit that are Trojan Family virtues.

The USC Associates is the philanthropic association dedicated to academics and the advancement of knowledge. Gifts from our members benefit every area of the university, from student financial aid and interdisciplinary research, to endowed faculty positions, capital projects and much more. When you join the USC Associates, you may direct your gift to benefit the school, program or research project of your choice. Wherever you choose to give, your gifts provide essential support for some of the university’s most vital academic programs and initiatives.

USC Associates members at all membership levels enjoy an especially close relationship with the university. As an Associate, you will receive a variety of courtesies that express and acknowledge this relationship. You also will be invited to exclusive social and cultural events. Perhaps the most important courtesy, however, is the personal care and attention extended to all members of the USC Associates. As a USC Associate, you will always have a friend at the university whom you can contact with all of your USC-related questions.

On behalf of the entire USC Associates Board of Directors, I would like to welcome our new members, and thank you for your interest in the USC Associates!
