About the Price School of Public Policy

For over 90 years, the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy earned public trust through path-breaking research and scholarship. We believe it is our ethical responsibility to continue serving our global community at the highest level of excellence.

Modern challenges require leaders who look beyond their area of expertise to find the most effective solutions. Today’s challenges call on a new generation of creative thinkers to explore beyond the status quo.

Solving societal issues of such complexity requires not only great minds but also great action. USC Price fosters collaboration and partnerships to better understand problems through varied perspectives. We use the vast influence of California and greater Los Angeles as a resource for setting new paradigms. And we translate research into communities by working directly with the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

USC Price faculty and students are bold. They ask difficult questions and question longstanding answers. They are leaders in their fields and deeply engaged citizens. But most of all, they are inspired by the fact that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity.
