Dear USC Faculty,

I want to publicly thank the members of the 2023-2024 University Committee on Academic Review (UCAR). This dedicated group of faculty has played a critical role in our university’s commitment to academic excellence.

UCAR is comprised of faculty from across the university who are charged with conducting periodic reviews of the university’s academic units. These reviews are intensive, with input from an external review committee comprised of prominent faculty from leading institutions. UCAR provides a substantive set of recommendations to enhance the stature of the very core of the university’s academic mission.

Please join me in thanking this group, named individually below, for their dedication and service to USC.
