Paying tribute to the wide range of intellectual and leadership achievements of the past year, the 32nd annual Academic Honors Convocation was held on April 23 at Town & Gown to recognize the best and the brightest among USC students, faculty and administrators.
“USC’s outstanding faculty and students all contribute to our academic community in a variety of ways — through their teaching, research, patient care, creative expression and professional innovation,” said USC President C. L. Max Nikias. “This evening’s honorees have distinguished themselves in one or more of these categories. Together they embody the university’s greatest aspirations.”
Nikias presented the Presidential Medallion, the university’s highest honor, to USC Trustee Verna B. Dauterive, and Inderbir Gill, chairman and professor of the Department of Urology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
