The University of Southern California (USC, SC, or Southern Cal) is a private research university in Los Angeles, California. University of Southern California_sentence_1

Founded in 1880 by Robert M. Widney, it is the oldest private research university in California. University of Southern California_sentence_2

For the 2019–20 academic year, there were 20,500 students enrolled in four-year undergraduate programs, and 28,000 graduate and professional students in a number of programs, including business, law, film, engineering, occupational therapy, pharmacy, and medicine. University of Southern California_sentence_3

USC is the largest private employer in the city of Los Angeles and generates $8 billion in economic impact on Los Angeles and California. University of Southern California_sentence_4

USC was one of the earliest nodes on ARPANET and is the birthplace of the Domain Name System. University of Southern California_sentence_5

Other technologies invented at USC include DNA computing, dynamic programming, image compression, VoIP, and antivirus software. University of Southern California_sentence_6

USC's alumni include a total of 11 Rhodes Scholars and 12 Marshall Scholars. University of Southern California_sentence_7

As of October 2018, nine Nobel laureates, six MacArthur Fellows, and one Turing Award winner have been affiliated with the university. University of Southern California_sentence_8

As of May 2018, USC has conferred degrees upon 29 alumni who became billionaires. University of Southern California_sentence_9

USC has graduated more alumni who have gone on to win an Academy Award than any other institution in the world by a significant margin, in part due to the success of the School of Cinematic Arts. University of Southern California_sentence_10

USC sponsors a variety of intercollegiate sports and competes in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) as a member of the Pac-12 Conference. University of Southern California_sentence_11

Members of USC's sports teams, the Trojans, have won 107 NCAA team championships, ranking them third in the United States, and 409 NCAA individual championships, ranking them second in the United States. University of Southern California_sentence_12

Trojan athletes have won 309 medals at the Olympic Games (144 golds, 93 silvers and 72 bronzes), more than any other university in the United States. University of Southern California_sentence_13

In 1969, it joined the Association of American Universities. University of Southern California_sentence_14

USC has had a total of 521 football players drafted to the National Football League, the second-highest number of drafted players in the country. University of Southern California_sentence_15

History University of Southern California_section_0

The University of Southern California was founded following the efforts of Judge Robert M. Widney, who helped secure donations from several key figures in early Los Angeles history: a Protestant nurseryman, Ozro Childs, an Irish Catholic former-Governor, John Gately Downey, and a German Jewish banker, Isaias W. Hellman. University of Southern California_sentence_16

The three donated 308 lots of land to establish the campus and provided the necessary seed money for the construction of the first buildings. University of Southern California_sentence_17

Originally operated in affiliation with the Methodist Church, the school mandated from the start that "no student would be denied admission because of race". University of Southern California_sentence_18

The university is no longer affiliated with any church, having severed formal ties in 1952. University of Southern California_sentence_19

When USC opened in 1880, tuition was $15.00 per term and students were not allowed to leave town without the knowledge and consent of the university president. University of Southern California_sentence_20

The school had an enrollment of 53 students and a faculty of 10. University of Southern California_sentence_21

The city lacked paved streets, electric lights, telephones, and a reliable fire alarm system. University of Southern California_sentence_22

Its first graduating class in 1884 was a class of three—two males and female valedictorian Minnie C. Miltimore. University of Southern California_sentence_23

The colors of USC are cardinal and gold, which were approved by USC's third president, the Reverend George W. White, in 1896. University of Southern California_sentence_24

In 1958, the shade of gold, which was originally more of an orange color, was changed to a more yellow shade. University of Southern California_sentence_25

The letterman's awards were the first to make the change. University of Southern California_sentence_26

USC students and athletes are known as Trojans, epitomized by the Trojan Shrine, nicknamed "Tommy Trojan", near the center of campus. University of Southern California_sentence_27

Until 1912, USC students (especially athletes) were known as Fighting Methodists or Wesleyans, though neither name was approved by the university. University of Southern California_sentence_28

During a fateful track and field meet with Stanford University, the USC team was beaten early and seemingly conclusively. University of Southern California_sentence_29

After only the first few events, it seemed implausible USC would ever win; however, the team fought back, winning many of the later events, to lose only by a slight margin. University of Southern California_sentence_30

After this contest, Los Angeles Times sportswriter Owen Bird reported the USC athletes "fought on like the Trojans of antiquity", and the president of the university at the time, George F. Bovard, approved the name officially. University of Southern California_sentence_31

During World War II, USC was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission. University of Southern California_sentence_32

USC is responsible for $8 billion in economic output in Los Angeles County; USC students spend $563 million yearly in the local economy and visitors to the campus add another $37.9 million. University of Southern California_sentence_33

Recognizing that China–United States relations would play a great role in shaping the 21st century, in 2006, USC established the USC U.S.-China Institute (USCI). University of Southern California_sentence_34

Known for its conferences, speakers series, training programs, publications and documentaries, USCI works to inform public discussion with policy-relevant research and timely programming. University of Southern California_sentence_35

It publishes and is widely known for its twelve-part Assignment:China documentary series on how China has been covered by American journalists since the 1940s. University of Southern California_sentence_36

In 2010, the U.S. government and the USA Pavilion organizers asked USCI to manage the recruitment, selection, training and supervision of the students selected to staff the pavilion at the Shanghai Expo. University of Southern California_sentence_37

Scandals University of Southern California_section_1

On May 1, 2014, USC was named as one of many higher education institutions under investigation by the Office of Civil Rights for potential Title IX violations by Barack Obama's White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. University of Southern California_sentence_38

USC is also under a concurrent Title IX investigation for potential anti-male bias in disciplinary proceedings, as well as denial of counseling resources to male students, as of 8 March 2016. University of Southern California_sentence_39

In 2018, USC was ordered to pay $111,965 in legal fees to a male student accused of rape after the Title IX investigation run by Gretchen Dahlinger Means Gaspari was deemed unfair. University of Southern California_sentence_40

In 2020, USC was penalized for its faulty Title IX processes by the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights. University of Southern California_sentence_41

In 2017, the university came into the national spotlight when the Los Angeles Times published information about Carmen A. Puliafito, the dean of USC's medical school. University of Southern California_sentence_42

After accusations of drug use, he resigned from his position as dean in 2016 and was fired from the school the following year after the news stories were published. University of Southern California_sentence_43

His medical license was subsequently suspended pending a decision whether it should be terminated. University of Southern California_sentence_44

On August 17, 2018, his license G 88200 in the State of California was revoked based on discipline orders. University of Southern California_sentence_45

In 2019, USC lost accreditation for their joint-run fellowship program in cardiovascular disease. University of Southern California_sentence_46

To replace Puliafito, USC named Rohit Varma as Dean of Keck School of Medicine of USC. University of Southern California_sentence_47

But in 2017, Varma resigned after it came to light that USC had disciplined him for inappropriate behavior fifteen years earlier. University of Southern California_sentence_48

The following year, the Los Angeles Times broke another story about USC focusing on George Tyndall, a gynecologist accused of abusing 52 patients at USC. University of Southern California_sentence_49

The reports span from 1990 to 2016 and include using racist and sexual language, conducting exams without gloves and taking pictures of his patients' genitals. University of Southern California_sentence_50

Inside Higher Ed noted that there have been "other incidents in which the university is perceived to have failed to act on misconduct by powerful officials" when it reported that the university's president, C. L. Max Nikias, is resigning. University of Southern California_sentence_51

Tyndall was fired in 2017 after reaching a settlement with the university. University of Southern California_sentence_52

The school did not report him to state medical authorities or law enforcement at the time, though the LAPD is now investigating Tyndall. University of Southern California_sentence_53

As of June 1, 401 people had contacted a special hotline to receive complaints about the doctor. University of Southern California_sentence_54

On October 18, it was reported that nearly 100 women filed new lawsuits against the university, bringing the number of accusations up to over 500 current and former students. University of Southern California_sentence_55

USC agreed to pay $215 million as a settlement after hundreds of women claimed the school did not address their complaints. University of Southern California_sentence_56

In 2020, it was reported that Nikias received $7.6 million as an exit package, including $194,000 for his wife, Niki Nikias, as "first lady". University of Southern California_sentence_57

In 2018, Dr. Dennis Kelly resigned as men's health physician at USC after almost twenty years. University of Southern California_sentence_58

The following year, he was accused by six male graduate students of inappropriate conduct. University of Southern California_sentence_59

By 2020, forty-nine accusations of misconduct had been made against Dr. Kelly, all by gay or bisexual students and former students. University of Southern California_sentence_60

USC was one of several universities involved in the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal. University of Southern California_sentence_61

On March 12, 2019, a total of three coaches and one athletic director were charged with having accepted bribes from wealthy families in return for fraudulently facilitating their children's admission to USC. University of Southern California_sentence_62

Among the twelve university personnel charged for their involvement in the scandal nationwide, four were associated with USC. University of Southern California_sentence_63

In 2018, Assistant Professor of the Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, Erick Guerrero, resigned due to allegations of an affair with a student. University of Southern California_sentence_64

In 2018, USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work Dean Marilyn Flynn moved to a "new role" after allegations of inappropriate financial transactions. University of Southern California_sentence_65

In 2019, Interim President Wanda Austin fired USC Marshall School of Business Dean James Ellis for the large number of complaints about harassment in his twelve years as Dean. University of Southern California_sentence_66

In 2020, USC School of Dramatic Arts Dean David Bridel resigned after admitting to an affair with an undergraduate. University of Southern California_sentence_67

In 2020, the head of the Title IX Office, Gretchn Dahlinger Means Gaspari, left USC after a whistleblower suit was filed alleging that "included the systematic destruction of investigative records, including the deletion of a “preservation file” related to George Tyndall". University of Southern California_sentence_68

She was also accused of "retaliating against the attorney for reporting that her own husband, John Gaspari, was convicted of misusing graphic photographs involving another woman". University of Southern California_sentence_69

John Gaspari was the Executive Director of USC's Center for Work and Family Life (CWFL) from 2000-2018, and he received the President’s Award for Staff Achievement from President Max CL Nikias in 2013. University of Southern California_sentence_70

He was "convicted of misusing graphic photographs involving another woman" and fired from USC in 2018 . University of Southern California_sentence_71

Campus University of Southern California_section_2

The University Park campus is in the University Park district of Los Angeles, 2 miles (3.2 km) southwest of Downtown Los Angeles. University of Southern California_sentence_72

The campus's boundaries are Jefferson Boulevard on the north and northeast, Figueroa Street on the southeast, Exposition Boulevard on the south, and Vermont Avenue on the west. University of Southern California_sentence_73

Since the 1960s, through campus vehicle traffic has been either severely restricted or entirely prohibited on some thoroughfares. University of Southern California_sentence_74

The University Park campus is within walking distance to Los Angeles landmarks such as the Shrine Auditorium, and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum which is operated and managed by the University. University of Southern California_sentence_75

Most buildings are in the Romanesque Revival style, although some dormitories, engineering buildings, and physical sciences labs are of various Modernist styles (especially two large Brutalist dormitories at the campus's northern edge) that sharply contrast with the predominantly red-brick campus. University of Southern California_sentence_76

Widney Alumni House, built-in 1880, is the oldest university building in Southern California. University of Southern California_sentence_77

In recent years the campus has been renovated to remove the vestiges of old roads and replace them with traditional university quads and gardens. University of Southern California_sentence_78

The historic portion of the main campus was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015. University of Southern California_sentence_79

Besides its main campus at University Park, USC also operates the Health Sciences Campus about 2 miles (3.2 km) northeast of downtown. University of Southern California_sentence_80

In addition, the Children's Hospital Los Angeles is staffed by USC faculty from the Keck School of Medicine and is often referred to as USC's third campus. University of Southern California_sentence_81

USC also operates an Orange County center in Irvine for business, pharmacy, social work and education; and the Information Sciences Institute, with centers in Arlington, Virginia and Marina del Rey. University of Southern California_sentence_82

For its science students, USC operates the Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies on Catalina Island just 20 miles (32 km) off the coast of Los Angeles and home to the Philip K. Wrigley Marine Science Center. University of Southern California_sentence_83

The Price School of Public Policy also runs a satellite campus in Sacramento. University of Southern California_sentence_84

In 2005, USC established a federal relations office in Washington, D.C. A Health Sciences Alhambra campus holds The Primary Care Physician Assistant Program, the Institute for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research (IPR), and the Masters in Public Health Program. University of Southern California_sentence_85

USC was developed under two master plans drafted and implemented some 40 years apart. University of Southern California_sentence_86

The first was prepared by the Parkinsons in 1920, which guided much of the campus's early construction and established its Romanesque style and 45-degree building orientation. University of Southern California_sentence_87

The second and largest master plan was prepared in 1961 under the supervision of President Norman Topping, campus development director Anthony Lazzaro, and architect William Pereira. University of Southern California_sentence_88

This plan annexed a great deal of the surrounding city and many of the older non-university structures within the new boundaries were leveled. University of Southern California_sentence_89

Most of the Pereira buildings were constructed in the 1970s. University of Southern California_sentence_90

Pereira maintained a predominantly red-brick architecture for the new buildings but infused them with his trademark techno-modernism stylings. University of Southern California_sentence_91

More recently under President C. University of Southern California_sentence_92 L. Max Nikias, the architectural orientation of the campus has moved towards a Gothic Revival style, taking cues from the scholastic styles of Oxford University and Harvard University, while underpinning USC's own historic identity that is present in the red-brick construction. University of Southern California_sentence_93

USC's role in making visible and sustained improvements in the neighborhoods surrounding both the University Park and Health Sciences campuses earned it the distinction of College of the Year 2000 by the Time/Princeton Review College Guide. University of Southern California_sentence_94

Roughly half of the university's students volunteer in community-service programs in neighborhoods around campus and throughout Los Angeles. University of Southern California_sentence_95

These outreach programs, as well as previous administrations' commitment to remaining in South Los Angeles amid widespread calls to move the campus following the 1965 Watts Riots, are credited for the safety of the university during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots. University of Southern California_sentence_96

(That the university emerged from the riots completely unscathed is all the more remarkable in light of the complete destruction of several strip malls in the area, including one just across Vermont Avenue from the campus's western security fence.) University of Southern California_sentence_97

The ZIP code for USC is 90089 and the surrounding University Park community is 90007. University of Southern California_sentence_98

USC has an endowment of $5.7 billion and carries out about $764 million per year in sponsored research. University of Southern California_sentence_99

USC became the only university to receive eight separate nine-figure gifts: $120 million from Ambassador Walter Annenberg to create the Annenberg Center for Communication and a later additional gift of $100 million for the USC Annenberg School for Communication; $112.5 million from Alfred Mann to establish the Alfred E. Mann Institute for Biomedical Engineering; $110 million from the W. University of Southern California_sentence_100 M. Keck Foundation for USC's School of Medicine; $150 million from the W. University of Southern California_sentence_101 M. Keck Foundation for USC's School of Medicine; $175 million from George Lucas to the USC School of Cinema-Television, now renamed USC School of Cinematic Arts, $200 million from Dana and David Dornsife for USC's College of Letters, Arts and Sciences to support undergraduate and Ph.D. programs, $110 million from John and Julie Mork for undergraduate scholarships, and $200 million from Larry Ellison to launch the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine. University of Southern California_sentence_102

Donations helped fund major new projects throughout the university. University of Southern California_sentence_103

University Village University of Southern California_section_3

In September 2014, the university began construction on USC Village, a 1.25-million-square-foot residential and retail center directly adjacent to USC's University Park campus on 15 acres of land owned by the university. University of Southern California_sentence_105

The USC Village has over 130,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, with student housing on the four floors above. University of Southern California_sentence_106

The $700 million project is the biggest development in the history of USC and is also one of the largest in the history of South Los Angeles. University of Southern California_sentence_107

With a grand opening held on August 17, 2017, the USC Village includes a Trader Joe's, a Target, a fitness center, restaurants, and outdoor dining, 400 retail parking spots, a community room, and housing for 2,700 students. University of Southern California_sentence_108

Health Sciences campus University of Southern California_section_4

Located three miles (5 km) from downtown Los Angeles and seven miles (11 km) from the University Park campus, USC's Health Sciences campus is a major center for basic and clinical biomedical research in the fields of cancer, gene therapy, the neurosciences, and transplantation biology, among others. University of Southern California_sentence_109

The 79-acre (32 ha) campus is home to the region's first and oldest medical and pharmacy schools, as well as acclaimed programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant (which are respectively ranked No. University of Southern California_sentence_110

1, No. University of Southern California_sentence_111

3, and No. University of Southern California_sentence_112

10 by U.S. News & World Report) and pharmacy. University of Southern California_sentence_113

In addition to the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, which is one of the nation's largest teaching hospitals, the campus includes three patient care facilities: USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, Keck Hospital of USC, and the USC Eye Institute. University of Southern California_sentence_114

USC faculty staffs these and many other hospitals in Southern California, including the internationally acclaimed Children's Hospital Los Angeles. University of Southern California_sentence_115

The health sciences campus is also home to the USC School of Pharmacy and several research buildings such as USC/Norris Cancer Research Tower, Institute for Genetic Medicine, Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute, Harlyne J. Norris Cancer Research Tower and Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research. University of Southern California_sentence_116

The Keck Hospital of USC is ranked No. University of Southern California_sentence_117

5 out of 411 hospitals in the State of California and No. University of Southern California_sentence_118

16 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. University of Southern California_sentence_119

In July 2013, the University expanded its medical services into the foothill communities of northern Los Angeles when it acquired the 185 bed Verdugo Hills Hospital in Glendale, California. University of Southern California_sentence_120

USC planned on making at least $30 million in capital improvements to the facility, which was officially renamed USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. University of Southern California_sentence_121

This 40-year-old hospital provides the community a 24-hour emergency department, primary stroke center, maternity/labor and delivery, cardiac rehabilitation, and imaging and diagnostic services. University of Southern California_sentence_122

USC physicians serve more than one million patients each year. University of Southern California_sentence_123

Public transit University of Southern California_section_5

USC is served by several rapid transit stations. University of Southern California_sentence_124

The Metro E Line light rail service between Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica wraps around the south and eastern edges of the University Park campus. University of Southern California_sentence_125

The E Line has three stations in the vicinity of the USC main campus: Jefferson/USC Station, Expo Park/USC Station, and Vermont/Expo Station. University of Southern California_sentence_126

The Metro J Line bus service serves both the University Park campus at 37th Street/USC station and the Health Sciences campus at LA County+USC Medical Center station. University of Southern California_sentence_127

In addition, both campuses are served by several Metro and municipal bus routes. University of Southern California_sentence_128

Former agricultural college campus University of Southern California_section_6

Chaffey College was founded in 1883 in the city of Ontario, California, as an agricultural college branch campus of USC under the name of Chaffey College of Agriculture of the University of Southern California. University of Southern California_sentence_129

USC ran the Chaffey College of Agriculture until financial troubles closed the school in 1901. University of Southern California_sentence_130

In 1906, the school was reopened by the municipal and regional government and thus officially separated from USC. University of Southern California_sentence_131

Renamed as Chaffey College, it now exists as a community college as part of the California Community College System. University of Southern California_sentence_132

Organization and administration University of Southern California_section_7

USC is a private public-benefit nonprofit corporation controlled by a Board of Trustees composed of 50 voting members and several life trustees, honorary trustees, and trustees emeriti who do not vote. University of Southern California_sentence_133

Voting members of the Board of Trustees are elected for five-year terms. University of Southern California_sentence_134

One-fifth of the Trustees stand for re-election each year, and votes are cast only by the trustees not standing for election. University of Southern California_sentence_135

Trustees tend to be high-ranking executives of large corporations (both domestic and international), successful alumni, members of the upper echelons of university administration, or some combination of the three. University of Southern California_sentence_136

The university administration consists of a president, a provost, several vice-presidents of various departments, a treasurer, a chief information officer, and an athletic director. University of Southern California_sentence_137

The current president is Carol Folt who on July 1, 2019 succeeded Board of Trustee member Wanda Austin who had been appointed the interim president by the Board when the former president C. University of Southern California_sentence_138 L. Max Nikias resigned in 2018. University of Southern California_sentence_139

The USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences, the Graduate School, and the 17 professional schools are each led by an academic dean. University of Southern California_sentence_140

USC occasionally awards emeritus titles to former administrators. University of Southern California_sentence_141

There are six administrators emeriti. University of Southern California_sentence_142

The University of Southern California's 20 professional schools include the USC Iovine and Young Academy, USC Leventhal School of Accounting, the USC Bovard College, USC School of Architecture, USC Marshall School of Business, USC School of Cinematic Arts, USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, USC Rossier School of Education, USC Viterbi School of Engineering, USC Roski School of Art and Design, USC Davis School of Gerontology, USC Gould School of Law, Keck School of Medicine of USC, USC Thornton School of Music, USC School of Pharmacy, USC Price School of Public Policy, USC School of Social Work, and USC School of Dramatic Arts.

It consists of a popularly elected president and vice president who lead an appointed executive cabinet, a popularly elected legislative branch, and judicial oversight. University of Southern California_sentence_145

The executive cabinet oversees funding, communications, programming, and advocacy work. University of Southern California_sentence_146

All USG activities are funded by the student activity fee. University of Southern California_sentence_147
