USC’s Commitment to a Safe, Harassment-Free Environment

USC expects all members of the university community – students, faculty, staff, employers, mentors, and visitors – to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from discrimination or harassment based on protected characteristics, sexual misconduct, and interpersonal violence. Thus, it is imperative that all individuals meet USC’s expectation that any environment where our students engage remain focused on respect and be free from any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. If you experience, see, or hear of behavior that violates this expectation, contact the USC Office for Equity, Equal Opportunity, and Title IX at to learn about resources and options available to you. Further, if you are in a supervisory position, you are obligated to make a report as a Designated Employee. You should also contact the Career Center. Individuals who report in good faith are encouraged and protected per USC’s Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation.

Review the Career Center’s Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Guidelines for detailed information.
