Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics

Visit Department Website

The USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics engages students with the timeless values at the core of our humanity. In this effort, we seek moral reflection, understanding of self, and multidisciplinary dialogue. Levan students are encouraged to make a positive impact across society and around the world.

The Levan Institute hosts multiple innovative programs including an interdisciplinary minor, event series, speaker series, undergraduate research, faculty and student grants, courses, workshops, and undergraduate student associations. The institute collaborates with other USC departments, professional schools and programs to bring students and faculty together with authors and artists, philosophers and practitioners, and the leading ethical voices of our time.
