In recognition of the extraordinary work of the university’s employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, four monuments are being placed around USC in honor of the unprecedented award.

The pedestal monuments represent the presentation of the 2021 Presidential Medallion to all of USC’s staff, faculty and health care professionals. USC President Carol L. Folt announced the recognition “to commemorate your extraordinary efforts for future generations of Trojans” during her State of the University address in April.

The initial pedestal has been installed next to Bovard Administration Building on the University Park Campus. Others will be placed at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, Keck Hospital of USC and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital.
