USC Good Neighbors Campaign

We support the Good Neighbors Campaign by contributing funding to University partnerships with community organizations. The Good Neighbors Campaign was founded by then-USC President Steven Sample in 1994 by asking faculty and staff to contribute a portion of their paychecks to support or establish community-building organizations in the surrounding area. Good Neighbor Campaign funded organizations range from placing children on a pathway to college, making the streets safer for families, and offering activities and programs aimed at improving the health and well-being of residents in the neighborhoods surrounding USC’s campuses. Faculty is encouraged to participate by applying for funding and beginning a community project.
