Meet the community behind the Culture Journey

The Culture Journey is a USC wide initiative supported by faculty, staff, students and administrators. In an effort to structure our efforts, the Culture Council and the Working Group on University Culture were formed, and they are supported by our Culture Network, all working together to advance positive culture initiatives for the university.

Culture Council

The Culture Council is an advisory body composed of senior university leaders, governance body leaders, and rotating deans and members from different schools and business units. They provide quarterly guidance and insights, make strategic recommendations across culture focus areas, and communicate annual culture goals to our university’s senior leadership.

Working Group on University Culture

The Working Group on University Culture gathers input for culture priorities, identifies integration points for our Unifying Values, and drives community engagement. This group is our main on-the-ground support for culture transformation and is essential to moving the Culture Journey forward.

Culture Network

Join the Culture Network for opportunities to be equipped with knowledge and skills related to our values, share and hear stories about how culture is being shaped across USC, and connect with colleagues outside of your school or unit who are just as passionate about culture as you are.
