Reminder to Sign Up for USC-wide Culture Sessions

Message to USC Faculty 

From: Charles F. Zukoski, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

January 17, 2020

I hope your semester is off to a revitalized start. With this New Year comes new beginnings, including the next phase of the Culture Journey at USC.

Last semester, nearly 20,000 students, faculty, and staff responded to our Values Poll. Your participation was a strong 40%.

I would like to ask you to make your voices heard once again at the upcoming Culture Sessions. This is an opportunity to help shape our future, together. The sessions will run from January 21-March 13, 2020.

We’re offering eight Town Halls, 60 in-person Discussion Sessions, and eight virtual/online Discussion Sessions. Space is limited, so please reserve your spot as soon as possible.

To register, login to with your USC NetID and look for the banner on the TrojanLearn homepage or search for “USC Culture Sessions.” For more information, please visit or email

In February, you will also be invited to your school and unit-specific town halls and discussion sessions. More information on those meetings will come directly from your deans and unit leaders.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to join us on this Culture Journey and continuing the shared conversation. Happy New Year!
