Leadership & Team

Faculty, staff, and students at the USC Bedrosian Center share a deep commitment to developing ideas and illuminating strategies to improve the quality of life for people in all our communities.


Through public discussion series, we focus on pressing issues facing the nation and integrate these conversations with civic education at the heart of strong communities.

CONVERSATION is the foundation of democracy.


Our suite of podcasts on civics and governance is available 24/7 for learning on the go. Through conversations about books & film or with researchers we explore the connections between ourselves and our democratic communities.
