USC Associates Faculty Awards

USC Associates has been focused on the support and acknowledgement of USC’s incredible faculty. This began with the USC Associates presenting eight $1,000 checks in 1960 to professors voted the best instructors by graduating seniors. Today, this support has evolved into three awards, each presented to two outstanding faculty members and totaling more than $21,000 annually.

Here are the 2016 winners:
