At the USC Leonard Davis School, we look forward to aging.

Dean’s Circle members impact USC Leonard Davis by:

Empowering Students

Creating Opportunity

Leading Across the Ages

Set a research and policy agenda promoting happiness, health and security for everyone at every age

We pursue scientific breakthroughs that lead to the prevention and treatment of diseases of aging and protect the vulnerable among us from abuse, isolation or injuries through our research and advocacy work. Your support via the USC Leonard Davis Dean’s Circle will allow students to explore and engage further in their studies, advance our work to provide outreach and advocacy for older adults, and help provide faculty scientists the best resources to conduct ground-breaking research.

Dean’s Circle donors enjoy opportunities to connect and network with other Trojan alumni, parents and friends and engage with USC Leonard Davis School leadership, faculty and special guests, as well as receive regular communications, invitations to special events and activities, and other courtesies.
