The University of Southern California (USC) is one of the world’s leading private research universities. Established in 1880, it is also one of the oldest. With a strong tradition of integrating liberal arts and sciences with professional education, USC fosters a vibrant culture of public service and encourages students to cross academic and geographic boundaries in their pursuit of knowledge. In 2019, the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education ranked USC 17th among 968 public and private universities. The ability to understand and make decisions with spatial information is what the USC Spatial Sciences Institute is all about. We partner with researchers, businesses, nonprofits, NGOs and other entities to analyze, model and visualize location-based data. As a leading GIS research and academic institution, we have the unique ability to attract talented researchers and educators from a wide range of disciplines and promote collaboration across countless areas of expertise and industry domains.
