Core Values

For more than 75 years, USC Chan has been leading innovative research, education and clinical practice. Our tripartite enterprise is truly unique within the nationwide landscape of occupational therapy higher education. USC Chan proudly carries this legacy forward today by reaffirming our fundamental mission and staking our vision for the future.

Success is not judged solely by endpoints achieved; it is also measured by our ethics enacted. That’s why our six core values — integrity, collaboration, inclusion, distinction, innovation and compassion — guide our individual and organizational behavior while shaping our climate and culture. These values also direct our strategic goals and priorities. Altogether, our mission, vision, core values and goals represent the fullest potential of every member of the Trojan Family, and the promise that what we do is only as good as how and why we do so.
