USC is playing a leading role in solving the global climate crisis. Our students are helping design an urban forest in Los Angeles, part of a deepening environmental partnership between the city and the university. Our researchers are showing how idle oil wells can be transformed into batteries for sustainable power—and tapping the potential of our oceans as a source of biofuel and other clean energy.
Our faculty are preparing the next generation of leaders and innovators in every discipline to drive the green and blue economy of the future. The university is lowering its own carbon footprint by transforming our campus with solar panels, native plants and more, in pursuit of net zero emissions.
Join us in this effort by making a contribution to the USC President's Sustainability Strategic Fund.
