The Wrigley Institute for Environment and Sustainability at USC Dornsife was founded with the mission to inspire global environmental solutions through ground-breaking education and research. Environmental justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion are central to that mission and guide the faculty, staff, and students of the Wrigley Institute to address existing and emerging inequities impacting USC and the greater community.
The Wrigley Institute hosts numerous events and activities throughout the year, including the Delta Murphy Lecture Series, the Climate Forward Conference, and the Storymakers Program. These events and activities allow students and researchers to communicate environmental and sustainable goals with the public.
In addition to a presence on the USC University Park Campus, the Wrigley Institute operates the Wrigley Marine Science Center (WMSC) on Santa Catalina Island, 22 miles off the coast of Los Angeles County.
