Campus Support & Intervention

Campus Support & Intervention (CSI) is an office within the Office of Campus Wellbeing and Crisis Intervention. CSI staff members assist students, faculty and staff in navigating complex issues. Whether you are seeking support for yourself or someone else, CSI staff members are available to help you problem solve, understand options and connect with resources. Please note that the department is not an emergency resource and is not available 24/7. In case of an emergency, please contact the Department of Public Safety at 213-740-4321.

CSI staff members connect with members of the USC community when they need support in achieving their academic, professional and/or personal goals. Staff can provide consultation over the phone to learn more about your individual situation, provide guidance and help you connect with relevant campus and community resources.

If you would like to get in touch with a CSI staff member, email uscsupport@usc.edu or call (213) 740-0411.

Trojans Care for Trojans

Trojans Care for Trojans (TC4T) is an initiative within the Office of Campus Wellbeing and Crisis Intervention that empowers USC students, faculty and staff to take action when they are concerned about a fellow Trojan challenged with personal difficulties.

This private and anonymous request form provides an opportunity for Trojans to help a member of our Trojan Family.

Note: If you are concerned about someone who has experienced sexual/gender-based harm, please contact the confidential services at Relationship & Sexual Violence Prevention Services (213-740-4900).  If you would like to report an instance of sexual/gender-based harm, you can contact the Title IX Office (213-740-5086).

Each TC4T submission will be reviewed and responded to by a staff member from Campus Support & Intervention (CSI) within the Office of Campus Wellbeing and Crisis Intervention. For more information, contact CSI at (213) 740-0411.

Office of the Ombuds

The Office of the Ombuds is a safe and confidential place to share any USC conflict-related issues and concerns. The term “ombuds” may be unfamiliar as it originally stems from a Swedish word, “ombudsman.” Essentially, ombuds are designated “neutrals” who facilitate the informal resolution of conflict. The ombuds at USC are trained by the International Ombudsman Association and operate under the pillars of confidentiality, impartiality, informality and independence. 

Ombuds will work with you by impartially listening to your concerns, providing neutral perspectives, brainstorming possible options, weighing strategies, identifying relevant policies and resources, and providing conflict and communication coaching. Additionally, the ombuds can provide conflict management assistance by facilitating conversations and mediating issues.

If you would like additional information, please visit our website. To make an appointment with the University Park Campus ombuds, please call (213) 821-9556 or email upcombuds@usc.edu. To make an appointment with the Health Sciences Campus ombuds, please call (323) 442-0382 or email hscombuds@usc.edu

Please note that we are not an emergency resource and are not available 24/7. In case of an emergency, please contact the Department of Public Safety at (213) 740-4321.
