- 5/7: Project Restart – The Path to Bringing USC Back to CampusWe established Project Restart, which is comprised of working groups involving over 100 faculty, staff, and students. These teams are charged with envisioning how we can return each specific element of university life to on-campus operations. The teams are planning in great detail, considering contingencies, and preparing us to be both nimble and thorough in our approach.
- 4/29: Seroprevalence Study at USC Student HealthUSC Student Health is conducting a study to estimate the percentage of USC students who have developed antibodies (a marker of exposure) to the virus that causes COVID-19. This study may help us learn more about infection rates of COVID-19 on the USC campus and among USC students and help the university prepare for the physical re-opening of the University Park Campus.
- 4/15: Message to Trojan Community from President FoltEven as the challenges continue, the spirit, creativity, and generosity of Trojans everywhere are a force for good. President Folt shares several stories that lift our spirits and remind us that our empathy, creative thinking, humor, and progress in science and medicine will get us through this crisis stronger and more united than ever.
