The National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climate Survey is now available!

On October 19, the National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates (NACCC), a survey designed to assess students’ feelings about mattering, inclusion and the racial climate on campus - launched!  
Understanding the experience of our students is important to improving student success. To ensure we get a good response rate, we need your help.   Please take a moment and announce in your classes or remind students when you meet with them to complete the survey. They will get a personal link in their Ranger email from USC.  The first 100 students who complete the survey will get a $10.00 gift card, plus there will be a drawing for 10 $100 Amazon gift cards after the survey closes.    
For more information, check out this link or contact Trina Patterson or DeAnn Possehl.

Day of the Dead Alter

Latinos Unidos and HR present the "Day of the Dead" altar, located in the glass enclosure in LI level of the Student Center.  The altar will be up from October 26 - November 12.

To some may or may not know, the tradition of Day of the Dead honors the lives of our loved ones who have passed away. We are dedicating our 2021 altar to those who lost the battle against covid. However, we are asking students, faculty and staff share a portrait of a family member that we can honor who have passed away through other causes. 

Make sure to stop down and check it out!
