Public health is everyone’s responsibility. USC works together with local governments and community members to create a robust public health program for the USC community and its neighbors. The Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) shepherds USC’s public health program with guidance, best practices, and resources for issues that may impact the campus population and surrounding community.
