USC Center for Sustainable Cities

Improving cities through research, education, and community outreach

Funders & Partnerships

The Center works collaboratively on research efforts with other USC centers, including the METRANS Transportation Center, Bedrosian Center on Governance and the Public Enterprise, Lusk Center for Real Estate, USC Energy Institute, GIS Research Laboratory, Wrigley Institute of Environmental Studies, and the the Keston Institute for Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy. In addition, the Center has established cooperative relationships with highly regarded nonprofit organizations interested in collaborative research, as a means to convey our academic expertise to real world settings.

As a private research institution, the University of Southern California relies on the support of individuals and organizations to carry out its mission. Contributions help ensure that resources are available to sustain the core programs and strategic goals of the Center. We thank the following organizations for their past and current funding of Center research:
