The giftprovides unrestricted endomentfor the college, which has beennamed the USC Dana and DavidDornsife College of Letters,Arts and Sciences. The newDornsife Scholars Programrecognizes outstanding graduatingseniors pursuing scholarly inquiryinto pressing social challenges.In June, the W. M. KeckFoundation announced a giftof 150 million that providesessential research funding andbrands USC’s academic medicalenterprise as a cohesive whole, tobe known as Keck Medicine ofUSC. Under that umbrella, theKeck Medical Center of USCcomprises the faculty physicians125568 Foldouts r1.indd 1GATEFOLD 1 FRONTassociated with the Keck Schoolof Medicine of USC, as wellas Keck Hospital of USC andUSC Norris Cancer Hospital.John and Julie Mork andtheir family made another historicgift: 110 million to create theUSC Mork Family ScholarsProgram.

In return, USCprepares the scholars for theacademy by providing facultymentoring, research support,and time to develop strong research and teaching portfolios.Selected from a pool ofmore than 900 applicants, theinaugural cohort comprises sixaccomplished thinkers whowill invigorate discussion withinand across fields ranging fromJapanese literature and visualculture to philosophical inquiryinto how theories of languageconstrain theories of the mind.New Era in MedicineWith the dedication of theEli and Edythe Broad CIRMCenter for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Researchat USC on Oct. 29, 2010, theuniversity ushered in a new erain medical research. “This newcenter carries out our promiseto society,” said USC president C.
