A Message from Interim Provost Elizabeth Graddy

Tommy Trojan

Message to USC Faculty

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome back! I hope you had a joyful and restorative break.

USC faculty are a unique and accomplished group. This Spring semester, President Folt and I look forward to continuing to work closely with all of you on the university’s most important priorities – educating our students, advancing our moonshots, promoting sustainability across our campuses, and conducting groundbreaking research to solve society’s greatest challenges.

We look forward to finding opportunities to visit with you, enhance our support of your work, communicate our successes, and expand and improve processes and structures that help us all flourish.

Thank you for all you do for your students, for each other, and for our university. As we ramp up this semester, I also invite you to reach out and engage with the Office of the Provost. You are always welcome to communicate with me at uscprovost@usc.edu.

I look forward to hearing from you and continuing to work with you.


Elizabeth A. Graddy
Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
