The Chief Operating Officer reflects the business and operations resources necessary to efficiently and effectively support the education and research missions of the School. This includes the need to meet the needs of the USC central administration in terms of fiscal, budgetary, and reporting requirements while also translating those broad resources into specific support for the School.
