Welcome to the Home page of the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering Faculty Council (EFC).

This site is a resource for USC School of Engineering Faculty members. It includes material and links particularly relevant to faculty members interested in understanding the work, role, and responsibilities of the USC Engineering Faculty Council.

VSoE faculty members can access the public information on this site without any further login. Restricted information such as School Policies, Meeting Minutes, Memoranda, Resolutions, Past & Current Issues and Survey Results will require you to log in with your ITS username and password (shibboleth).

Communicate directly with the EFC

The EFC would like to hear from faculty about any issue relating to our professional life at USC. The link below will take you to a form where you may enter any comments or concerns. Submissions are forwarded to the EFC anonymously. The EFC will routinely gather the comments together, discuss them and determine what if any action should be taken. This is a way to communicate with your fellow faculty and with the Viterbi administration.
