Our Story

Public Exchange connects a wide range of academic researchers with policy, industry, and non-profit partners that need their expertise to tackle complex challenges. Our goal is to amplify social impact by making academic expertise more easily accessible than ever before, and apply academic rigor to addressing the world’s most intractable issues.

As a first-of-its-kind program based at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, Public Exchange connects partners with the right team of USC researchers, defines a scope and timeline, and provides project management from start to finish. Our model provides Public Exchange partners with the data, analysis and evidence-based recommendations they need to solve big challenges.
