University of Southern California USC


The Urban Growth Seminar Series is 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!


The series was created by Professor Dowell Myers, former Director of the Graduate Programs in Urban Planning, as part of the Master of Planning program.   The goal of the series is to expose students to the top scholars and professionals in the planning world. Past speakers include leaders from the City of Los Angeles, the County of Los Angeles, Southern California Association of Governments, California High Speed Rail, The Lincoln Institute for Land Policy, and a wide variety of research universities around the country.
