USC and Community News | Noticias comunitarias y la USC

Do you want to know what USC is doing in our local communities? Are you curious about other community activities? If you answered “yes” to both questions, a new communications vehicle will fit the bill perfectly.    

It’s no secret that USC, which recently was named tops in community engagement among all colleges and universities, has a multitude of flourishing programs and projects in the neighborhoods surrounding its campuses. But finding out about all these initiatives has in the past involved a lot of digging. A new USC Web site solves that problem. 

“Our Communities” (, launched late last year by the USC Office of Government and Community Relations and University Public Relations, documents the university’s outreach
and research across various disciplines and campuses. It is jam-packed with
information on programs, photographs and detailed maps of neighborhood

“This site illustrates some of USC’s core missions in the communities: putting students on the path to college from Head Start through high school; stimulating the local economy; and making neighborhoods safer,” said Thomas S. Sayles, USC vice president for government and community relations. “It shows the depth and breadth of USC’s efforts and our commitment to the neighborhood.”     

¿Desea saber qué hace la USC en sus vecindarios más cercanos? ¿Siente curiosidad sobre otras actividades comunitarias? Si respondió “sí” a ambas preguntas, hay dos nuevos instrumentos de comunicación que le serán de gran interés.    

No es ningún secreto que la USC, que ha sido nombrada recientemente la mejor en cuanto a su compromiso comunitario entre todas las universidades del país, cuenta con una multitud de magníficos programas y proyectos que funcionan en los vecindarios que rodean a sus campus. Pero, antes, tratar de informarse sobre todas estas iniciativas requería muchísimo esfuerzo. Un nuevo sitio web de la USC resuelve este problema. 

El sitio web “Nuestras comunidades” ( se lanzó a finales del año pasado por la oficina para las Relaciones Gubernamentales y Comunitarias de la USC y Relaciones Públicas de la Universidad. Documenta los proyectos de servicio comunitario y de investigación
de la USC a través de sus diversos recintos universitarios y disciplinas. Está
repleto de información sobre los programas, de fotografías y de detallados
mapas sobre recursos comunitarios. 

“Este sitio web ilustra algunos de los cometidos centrales de la USC en las comunidades: guiar a los estudiantes hacia los estudios universitarios, desde Head Start hasta la escuela secundaria; estimular la economía local; y ayudar a que los vecindarios se sientan más seguros”, explica Thomas S. Sayles, vice presidente para las Relaciones Gubernamentales y Comunitarias de la USC. “Demuestra la amplitud y alcance de los esfuerzos de la USC y nuestro compromiso hacia nuestros vecindarios”.
