The USC Dornsife Initiative

At the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, we understand that to make an impact in today’s global society we must move beyond the classical silos of academia. Our faculty and students come together — across disciplines, across continents, across laboratories, libraries and art galleries — to create, transmit and translate knowledge for the good of humankind.

We invite you to join us in becoming the first, truly modern university that fosters entrepreneurial thinking with purpose by educating, enriching and empowering our students and faculty. Together, we will leave an indelible mark on the world in critical areas such as sustainability, health and our communities that will inspire generations after us.

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.
