USC Policies and Policy Governance

The USC policy website is our official home for all university policy.

At USC, policies are at the heart of an effective ethics and compliance program. A successful policy management program is built upon a clearly defined program strategy and supported by policy documents and tools.

The Office of Culture, Ethics and Compliance manages the university’s policies, processes, and procedures throughout all stages of the policy life cycle – including drafting, editing, approving, updating, distributing, and maintaining an auditable database of records.

We are committed to creating a safe and productive work and learning environment, and as such, USC faculty, staff, and students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with these policies and adhering to them.

For hospital staff and clinical faculty and staff, additional policy is available at KeckNet and the Verdugo Hills Hospital Intranet.
