Jobs at USC Roski

Positioned on the Pacific Rim in Los Angeles — a multicultural arts capital of the world — the Roski School of Art and Design provides an active learning environment that reflects the peoples and cultures of Los Angeles and beyond. We believe that diversity, inclusion, and equity are indispensable to higher education, and play a particularly important role in shaping the learning experience of cultural producers. Art and design education provides both methodologies and platforms for the investigation of complex ideas, and that inquiry must be founded on inclusive and open discourse that embraces difference.
