USC School of Architecture is dedicated to developing ‘citizen architects’ – the next generation of architects and design leaders making direct contributions to the improvement of their communities.

Milton S. F. Curry, Dean and Della & Harry MacDonald Dean’s Chair, envisions USC Architecture as an academic cultural institution – an advocate, a partner, and a resource for:

  • Urban design and development
  • Architectural innovation
  • Technology
  • Conservation infrastructures

The School is committed to making strategic investments to define its future in:

  • Transformative student experiences
  • Distinguished and diverse faculty
  • Influential research and innovative work
  • Dynamic learning environments

Donations to the USC Architecture Dean’s Innovation Fund ensure continued access to resources necessary for these demanding degree programs.
