Culture Journey

Our Culture Journey Continues

The USC Values Poll was only the first step in the Culture Journey, with 19,756 of us (9,091 students, 7,395 staff, 3,156 faculty, 94 post-docs, and 20 fellows/residents) taking the survey from October 14 – November 3, 2019.  As a dynamic institution of 22 Schools, 13 Administrative/Business Units, and Keck Medicine, we now move forward to build on opportunities around culture change.

What’s next?

  • December 2019: We’ll begin communicating high-level Values Poll results to our community and leaders.
  • January 21 – March 13, 2020: Join us for USC-wide Town Halls and Discussion Sessions for in-depth conversations on the Values Poll results, and aligning our values to behaviors.  We’ll also have School and Unit-specific Town Halls and Discussion Sessions to get into deeper details around Poll results for each of our Schools and Units.

Look for registration details via email in December to sign up for Town Halls and Discussion Sessions!
