USC AMPLIFIED is a university-wide event series featuring some of today’s most dynamic and distinguished figures in entertainment, politics, sports, business, the sciences, the arts, and the humanities. Launched in Fall 2020, AMPLIFIED was created to support the social, cultural, and intellectual enrichment of our students, and much of the programming is designed based on student input.
Under the AMPLIFIED banner, we present THRIVE, a series of dialogues on wellbeing hosted by USC Dean of Religious and Spiritual Life, Varun Soni. Featuring conversations with noteworthy experts, THRIVE offers opportunities for the USC community to feel connected, inspired, and empowered.
The AMPLIFIED series also highlights We Are SC, a series of conversations in which USC President Carol L. Folt sits down one-on-one with some of the remarkable people who are part of the Trojan community.
