Authorized Dean’s Signature Designees

Sponsored research applications and forms often require the signature of the investigator’s dean. However, deans may not be available on short notice, so many schools and divisions at USC have designated at least one other individual who is authorized to sign on behalf of the dean.

Note that these individuals are authorized to sign on behalf of the dean for sponsored research forms only, and not necessarily for any other type of form or policy.

USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism
