We Are Frontline Scholars.

We stand at the edge. On one side is the familiar, a world filled with complexity and complacency. On the other, the thrilling space where discovery and progress reside. It is time for us to step forward.

We will advance human health by creating models to explore new treatments and cures. We will preserve our environment by leveraging urban coastal Los Angeles to develop sustainable practices. We will improve our communities by studying the past’s relevance for the future and by understanding the social and economic impacts of behaviors.

The collective power of USC Dornsife’s faculty and students across a spectrum of disciplines uniquely positions us to offer comprehensive solutions to our global society’s toughest challenges. Join us at the frontlines as we define scholarship of consequence for the 21st century.

The USC Dornsife Initiative’s $750 million goal is part of the most ambitious fundraising effort in USC’s history, a multi-year effort to secure $6 billion as part of The Campaign for the University of Southern California. The initiative will touch and transform every aspect of the university, as funds will support endowments for faculty and research, student scholarships, academic priorities and capital projects.
