USC’s unofficial school color? Green — USC News

USC President Carol L. Folt set a vision for the 21st-century university during her inaugural address in 2019 — environmentally friendly practices paired with applied research insights that would make a tangible global impact.

Since that time, the world has turned upside down, but USC continues to push the sustainability envelope in the face of increasingly dire predictions for the future of our planet.

Amid several campus events and programs celebrating Earth Week 2022, Folt has made her most impactful move yet — transitioning USC from non-biodegradable plastic beverage bottles to more sustainable packaging in partnership with university vendors. According to Folt, the phase-out of single-use plastics is long overdue.
