USC Sol Price School of Public Policy
In 2011, Price Philanthropies Foundation made a significant donation to endow and name the University of Southern California (USC)’s School of Public Policy in honor of USC alumnus Sol Price. The naming gift reflects the alignment between the legacy of Sol Price and the school’s mission to improve the quality of life for people and their communities, here and abroad.
The gift also established the Sol Price Center for Social Innovation to advance ideas and strategies to improve the quality of life for people in low-income, urban communities.
Together with the Price School’s academic rigor and practice-based expertise, the Sol Price Center for Social Innovation works to advance new models of equity and opportunity for low-income children and families, as well as advance the field of social innovation through scholarship and rigorous academic inquiry.
