USC creates interactive maps of neighborhood services

The detailed maps of neighborhood resources pinpoint the locations of schools, parks, churches, museums, heath care facilities and historic buildings.

Did you know all these parks are are in the USC University Park and Exposition Park neighborhoods:
* Jesse A. Brewer Jr. Park
* Denker Recreation Center
* Exposition Park Rose Garden
* Hoover Recreation Center
* Loren Miller Recreation Center
* Richardson Family Park
* Curtis Roland Park
* Saint James Park

To find out where, check out Our Communities.

Our Communities was launched in September to document the university’s outreach and research across various disciplines and campuses. It includes descriptions of collaborative programs, recent photographs of Trojans and neighborhood residents engaged in projects.

“This site illustrates some of USC’s core missions in the communities: putting students on the path to college from head start through hig...; 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.

“We are now able to more clearly define our outreach to include not only programs that serve the community, but the academic research that our professors are doing,” Sayles said. “These studies are informing policymaking decisions that result in services to these neighborhoods and others like it.”

Susan Heitman, associate senior vice president of university relations, said: “When he arrived nearly 20 years ago, President Sample made our relationship with the community the hallmark of his administration. He set hugely ambitious goals. He believes in the concept of being a good neighbor, and we have that responsibility.

“This Web site is our latest effort in building this partnership in our community,” she said.
