Students, faculty, staff and members of the community gathered on April 11 at Town and Gown on the University Park Campus to celebrate the accomplishments of USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences’ Joint Educational Project (JEP) participants.
The annual dinner recognizes students and faculty who have made significant contributions to communities in the Los Angeles area through their work with JEP and other service organizations at USC during the academic year.
“But beyond celebrating good work, the dinner allows us to share stories of the transformative effect of service — not just on the community but on the individuals who engage in this work,” said JEP Executive Director Susan Harris.
