Diversity & Inclusion

The University of Southern California has a strong history in promoting diversity among its outstanding faculty. To this end, the Provost has asked each school to appoint a diversity liaison who will be included in the search committees of their respective schools and has special responsibility to ensure that qualified candidates from underrepresented groups are identified.
