Faculty and Staff Resources
We are the springs and gears that keep the machine running. We are the teachers, mentors and researchers. We keep the lights on and the buildings clean. We are brand evangelists and institutional defenders. We are the health and wellness providers. We make the university work for everyone. We are the foundation of the university’s mission.
We are SC.
Campus Support and Intervention connects with members of the USC community when they need support in achieving their academic, professional, and/or personal goals. We can provide consultation, in person, by Zoom, or over the phone, to learn more about your individual situation so we can provide guidance and help you connect with relevant campus and community resources.
Mindful USC offers mindfulness-related classes, programming and events designed to foster growth, health, wisdom, compassion, and connection within and among the diverse communities of USC.

The USC Staff Assembly is an officially recognized branch of the university governance system and exists to promote the growth and welfare of staff employees.
