Our Instructors

The beauty of all of our U101 classes is that they are taught by our faculty and staff as well as other members of the USC community that have a deep affinity for the Green Quad. This means we add a little GQ flair to the classroom experience and tie the classes into events and service opportunities that are already happening in the Green Quad community.
