President Steven B. Sample addresses USC's transformation from a commuter campus to a residential university. USC prides itself on being a large research university with a small-college atmosphere.
Some of this atmosphere derives from the personal care and concern our faculty show their students. Increasingly, however, the small-college feel has been amplified by a transformation taking place on the University Park campus. We are becoming a residential university. A record number of students are seeking housing on or near our campus.
What is the university doing to deal with its transition to a residential campus? What are the implications for members of the USC faculty? How does this affect our learning-has-no-boundaries goals and ideals? USC president Steven B. Sample will talk about this and much more at the next CET Faculty Forum.
