The Urban Growth Seminars are hosted by USC’s Sol Price School of Public Policy.  We bring top practitioners and leading researchers to discuss innovative responses to complex urban issues.  We are very excited about this semester’s slate of presenters, and hope you’ll join us!

Cancelled: April 8th seminar with Professor Boarnet, “Measuring Rail Transit’s Sustainability Goals: An Experimental Evaluation of the Expo Line.”  The seminar series will resume Fall 2014.

The seminars take place on numerous Tuesdays throughout the school year from 12:15-1:30. The seminars are free, anyone may attend and no RSVP is required. Join our Facebook group to keep up to date:
