USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics Play

In 2009 the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics was established at the University of Southern California (USC) with a generous gift from Leonard and Pamela Schaeffer. The establishment of the Schaeffer Center came at a time that demanded new thinking and new approaches to solving our health and health care challenges. The nation has long sought to better understand and to develop policy to increase access, control spending and improve quality and health outcomes.

The passage of Federal health care reform adds a new sense of urgency to these issues and, in addition, raises new questions related to the macro consequences of health spending on the nation's economy and fiscal health. Because health care touches everyone's life and is inextricably linked with the broader economy, addressing health policy issues requires perspectives from different fields of expertise and creative research methods. For this reason, the Schaeffer Center is based on the principle of interdisciplinary research.

The Center is the result of a unique collaboration between the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and the USC School of Pharmacy. For the first time, this new Center brings together health policy experts from the School of Public Policy, a seasoned pharmacoeconomics team from the School of Pharmacy, and other affiliated faculty and scholars from across USC and a number of other distinguished universities. The Center is led by Dana Goldman, the Norman Topping Chair in Medicine and Public Policy, at USC. A core faculty of three distinguished colleagues, Darius Lakdawalla, Neeraj Sood, and Geoffrey Joyce, oversee the domestic, international and policy research programs, respectively. The Center is committed to developing exceptional human and technical capacity to conduct interdisciplinary research, policy analysis, and training.

The Center's vision is to become a premier research and educational institution recognized for innovative, independent research and significant contributions to policy development and health care system improvement. Its mission is to promote health and value in health care delivery by conducting rigorous research and policy in the United States and internationally. With its extraordinary breadth and depth of expertise, the Center will have a vital impact on the transformation of health care.

METRANS Transportation Center Play

The METRANS Transportation Center is a US DOT University Transportation Center (UTC). Established in 1998 through the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), METRANS is a joint partnership of the University of Southern California and California State University, Long Beach.

METRANS is the first and largest UTC in Southern California, home to nearly 2/3 of the state's population. The Los Angeles region is also the most congested metropolitan area in the U.S. and the only one in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's "extreme" non-attainment category for ozone. The region is a center for international trade: the Los Angeles/ Long Beach port complex is the largest container port in the U.S., and LAX is the 5th largest air freight center in the United States. As a center of both international trade and immigration, it is home to extreme wealth as well as extreme poverty, and has one of the largest transit-dependent populations in the country. METRANS is committed to addressing the transportation challenges of regions such as Los Angeles.

METRANS' mission is to solve transportation problems of large metropolitan regions through interdisciplinary research, education and outreach.

USC Price Urban Growth Seminars Play

The Urban Growth Seminars are a series of seminars sponsored by USC's School of Policy, Planning, and Development to highlight current issues in urban growth and development.

The Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy Play

Philanthropy is occurring at a greater scale, faster pace, and in more complex forms than ever before in California and the West, creating a dynamic backdrop and context for The Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy.

Established in 2000 with major grants from leading California foundations, The Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy aims to promote more effective philanthropy and strengthen the nonprofit sector to advance public problem solving. Through its research projects, roundtables, forums, and seminars, the center produces and disseminates information and ideas to philanthropists, nonprofit leaders, policymakers and the public to stimulate public dialogue and foster a greater understanding of philanthropy and its relationships with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. CPPP's goals are: to increase understanding of philanthropy's role in society, to help philanthropic organizations and individuals be more effective, to encourage partnerships among philanthropic organizations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and business to address public problems, to examine how philanthropy and public policy can influence and strengthen each other.

The Center for Risk & Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events Play

Established in 2004, CREATE is an interdisciplinary national research center based at the University of Southern California and funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The Center is focused on risk and economic analysis of the U.S. and comprises a team of experts from across the country, including partnerships with numerous universities and research institutions.

Many threats and vulnerabilities pose daily risks to our national security. CREATE develops predictive models that gauge how and where terrorist events might occur, estimate the economic consequences of such attacks and identify where the country's vulnerabilities reside.

The Center serves national interests by providing tools and guidance to the Department of Homeland Security, as well as local, regional and state decision-makers, for the prioritization of countermeasures to terrorism, identifying areas where investments are likely to be most effective, computing relative risks among potential terrorist events, and estimating the societal consequences of terrorism.
