“What Matters to Me and Why” represents a creative solution to an important and often unrecognized problem in the university setting: the separation of intellectual life from personal and spiritual issue. The people who shape USC, who teach students the ways of their particular disciplines, and who help them develop marketable skills also have a great deal to pass on in terms of worldly wisdom, moral guidance, and sources of spiritual strength.
This month's speaker is Bailey London. She is the Allen & Ruth Ziegler Executive Director at USC Hillel. A fellow Trojan alumna, London holds MA degrees in Social Work and Jewish Non-Profit Management from USC and from Hebrew Union College respectively. As an undergraduate, she studied at the University of Arizona, earning a B.A. in Judaic Studies. In 2018, she received the prestigious Mark Melzer Young Professional Award, and Hillel International honored her with the Exemplar of Excellence Award. Prior to her role at Hillel, London served as the Director of Emerging Leadership and Next Gen Initiatives at the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, Florida.
