Diversity in Research

USC is located at the center of one of the most diverse cities in the world, making diversity and inclusion a unique strength of our research programs. Our priority — as explained in the Strategic Plan for Diversity in Research — is to conduct research that benefits all segments of society, by a broadly diverse and inclusive research community.

We created the Zumberge Diversity and Inclusion Award, a special solicitation aimed specifically at supporting research and scholarship that addresses critical gaps in knowledge on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
