Since 1994, the University of Southern California’s growth and vision has been guided by a series of strategic plans. Each new plan outlined the significant goals for the university’s future and each new plan became a focal point for conversations with the entire Trojan Family.

The current plan, The 2018 Strategic Plan – Answering the Call, was adopted by the USC  Board of Trustees on February 7, 2018.

Provost Michael W. Quick would like to thank the members of the strategic planning committee and particularly, Elizabeth Graddy, Vice Provost for Academic and Faculty Affairs, and Robin Romans, Assistant Vice Provost, for their leadership.
