A New Provost
The Trojan Family came together Thursday for the installation of Andrew T. Guzman as USC provost. As the university’s second-ranking administrator, Guzman oversees 18 of the university’s professional schools and academic units as well as USC Museums and the divisions of student life, libraries, student religious and spiritual life, and enrollment services. Guzman previously served as dean of the USC Gould School of Law.
A Center for Diversity in Engineering
Faculty, staff, students and friends of the university gathered Wednesday to name the new John Brooks Slaughter Center for Engineering Diversity at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Slaughter, a strong advocate for the inclusion of women and minorities in science and engineering, was the first Black director of the National Science Foundation. He is a former USC Viterbi faculty member with a joint appointment at the USC Rossier School of Education.
The university will lead one of eight regional innovation hubs funded by the CHIPS and Science Act.
The businessman, investor and philanthropist profoundly changed the course of USC, its medical school and medical enterprise.
Trojans share personal stories and pay tribute to those who support their academic dreams.
The 1,500-square-foot hub is a collaborative, inclusive and multiuse gathering space for advancing sustainability at USC.
