Objective: The Art Council can be subdivided into three main goals – Internal, External, and the Creative Individual. Internal: To unite the various entities that study, practice, and create the Fine Arts in the undergraduate program of University of Southern California. To centralize the efforts and information of growing leaders in the field of Fine Arts, through discussions of events, ideas, and plans. To maintain longevity of organizations. External: To expand the reputation of the University of Southern California’s art programs, reaching out to established leaders of the Southern California’s art world to further opportunity for art students at this institution. Creative Individual: The differentiating factor between this council with other school councils (i.e. Marshall Council) will be the development of the creative individual through “Masters Events.” A “Masters” event is an outing where club members will be given unique and exclusive opportunities to go to various art events. This event will serve all three of the objectives mentioned: internally unifying the group, externally connecting members with important art world figures, and educating the creative individual about the outing’s artwork and significance. Collaborating with the President’s own connections, and the advisors’ connections, will be critical for these events.

Campus Cursive at USC
As a college branch of the non-profit More Love Letters, Campus Cursive serves a niche at USC; none of the current organizations on campus focus heavily on the act of spreading love. This organization would give back to our campus and the community by leading meaningful, impactful, and loving actions- mainly through the act of letter writing. In such a busy and forward-thinking environment, the organization serves to remind students to take a step back in order to recognize and cherish life and love. Through writing and sending these love letters, a genuinely social and loving environment is encouraged on our campus to create a stronger sense of community, and of course Trojan family. Campus Cursive will request members to script letters of love to people (friend, family, or stranger) in need of a boost. Background: The World Needs More Love Letters began in October 2010 in New York City. A girl experimented with her own loneliness and tapped into something much larger than herself through 400 love letters. The things she found to be true: A) No matter how tough we act, we all still need a love letter from time to time. B) Even in a world crammed tight into 140 characters and constant status updates, there is a still a great craving for the handwritten note. C) Everyone defines the term “love letters” in their own way. Better we take the word from its confines and let it run free. D) The world needed far more than just her own love letters. It is that girl’s hope that The World Needs More Love Letters will be a nook within this worldwide web where individuals can pin their progress and pathways to spreading more love through the handwritten note. Not only to people they know by name, but to strangers they have never met who could use a reminder that they are doing “just fine” in the world today.

Competition Math Outreach Initiative
We aim to introduce underrepresented middle school and high school students in the USC area to beautiful math. Inside the box thinking will not get students with limited resources very far in life. Neither will an inside the box curriculum. Students in this area deeply admire Trojans, but most of them have no idea what it takes to be admitted to USC. Other programs might focus on helping these students with their grades and performance in school. This is very important, but we want to do something slightly different. Our goal is to inspire these students with new ideas, specifically those that are mathematical in nature. We want these students to understand that there is a deeper way of assessing knowledge that is not bogged down by bureaucracy and letter grades. Math competitions like MATHCOUNTS and the AHSME are comprised of interesting and creative ideas that are not generally introduced to students in this age group; especially at schools with limited resources. We will use variations on interesting mathematical themes to create weekly lessons and problems sets. We will then travel to various schools in groups of three (or more) to coach local students on how to solve these problems. Hopefully, this will prepare these students for a future that they had not previously dreamed to envision.

Grodins Symposium Committee
There are two main objectives to the Grodins Symposium: ? 1) Strengthen the Biomedical Engineering community at USC The Biomedical Engineering department here at USC has become large and diverse. We have a great amount of faculty and adjunct faculty with research areas that include vision science and technology, neuroengineering, biosystems and biosignals analysis, physiological modeling, medical devices and diagnostics, biomechanics, and bioimaging and imaging informatics. Recently, the department has added professors focused in cell and tissue engineering as well. Only the first year of courses is shared by PhD students, and then we move on to different directions of which there are many. With such specialization, even students who entered the program together tend not to interact in the academic level. This lack of interaction is further amplified for students who entered the program in different years. The Grodins Symposium aims to bridge together the varied, broad world of Biomedical Engineering by allowing all the students create posters or podium presentations that can be shared with all of their peers. It is the one time of the year where we find out and explore the exciting research that is being performed outside our individual labs. Thus, we can make new connections with other students with whom we never would have interacted with normally, keeping the department more connected. 2) Development of professional communication skills The Grodins Symposium is structured similar to a scientific conference, so it becomes a great learning experience for students to practice public speaking and the presentation of research to an audience that may have either intimate knowledge of the research or none at all. For the symposium, all PhD students are required to submit an abstract and a two-page manuscript to the committee. PhD candidates are offered podium presentations, and PhD students must make posters. For many incoming students, it will be first-time experience to write a conference paper or design a poster. For everyone, it will provide a great experience for being able to construct a narrative around his or her research and to execute the delivery. As an event limited mostly to the USC community, students will feel less pressure during their presentations, and the familiarity of the attendees or speakers will encourage interaction. Students will be less hesitant in asking questions, which will help them in their ability to formulate critical questions, and this will help the presenters to practice fielding questions. With such open feedback from our peers as well as faculty, we can train ourselves to become leading experts in our field.

Haneulsri is USC's one and only traditional Korean percussion or "samulnori" group that was founded in the fall, 2010. We are dedicated to spreading the awareness of Korean culture through music and performance on the university campus. Samulnori was born out of a long history of "poongmul"—performance folk music used to celebrate harvests and seasonal festivals—in the Joseon Dynasty. Samulnori groups are a growing presence in universities all across the U.S. due its liveliness and energy appealing more and more to the younger audiences. Samulnori,, which literally translates to "four instrument play," consists of four different instruments that each represents a different weather condition: the janggu represents rain; the kkwaenggwari, thunder; the jing, wind; and the buk, clouds. This idea is reflected in our club name—Haneulsori, which means Sound of the Sky.

ISee Dance
ISEE Dance serves to provide a platform for Chinese international students to share and promote our current day popular culture. What differentiates us from other dance clubs at USC is that we are the first and only dance group that can and will form strong partnership with various existing Chinese (not Chinese American, as we are brought up in two completely different backgrounds and cultures) organizations both on and off campus. The name “ISEE” refers to the phrase “I See”, signifying what audience witnesses from us will allow them to actually see and understand the present day China. Today’s Chinese pop culture is not only limited to traditional Chinese dance/songs, but more of an integration of the Chinese, western nations, and other Asian countries’ cultures. Therefore, our styles of performances will vary from the traditional Chinese dance, to KPOP, to hip hop and jazz, and at most times, a hybrid of all of the above, because these are exactly what young people in China actively involve in and enjoy today. Our current partners include CSA (Chinese Student Association), CSSA (Chinese Student and Scholar Association), ICON Union (Intercollegiate Chinese Organization Network Union-off campus), and SWCSSA (Southwestern Chinese Students and Scholars Association-off campus), all of which will provide opportunities for us to perform at (Lunar Year Festival Show, Mid-Autumn Festival Show, etc). We are open for further cooperation with other organizations. We do not have a fixed meeting time, but whenever we are confirmed of an event to attend, our members will start rehearsing weeks before the show takes place. There may be more than one project in hand simultaneously, then members may choose to participate in either, all, or none depending on preferences, ability, and time. The first project that we are anticipating is the Oct. 5th Mid-Autumn Festival Show held by SWCSSA at the Bovard Auditorium, of which ten of us are invited to prepare a 4-minute dance performance in front of guests from various Chinese firms and even officials from the Chinese embassy.

Students for Justice in Palestine
I. MISSION: Part and parcel of the larger student movement sweeping university campuses across the United States, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is a diverse group of students, faculty, staff, and community members centered at the University of Southern California, and organized in accordance with democratic principles to promote justice, human rights, and self-determination for the Palestinian people. II. GUIDING PRINCIPLES: As an advocacy group, SJP believes that key principles grounded in international law, human rights, and basic standards of justice, dictate concrete steps that will be fundamental to a fair and lasting resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Most important among those steps are: • An end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and the illegal annexation of East Jerusalem. - The right to self-determination of the Palestinian people. • An end to Israel’s system of apartheid in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, as well as its system of discrimination against the Arab population within its own borders. • A just solution to the Palestinian refugee problem. Just as SJP condemns the racism and discrimination underlying many of the policies of the state of Israel, SJP also categorically opposes any form of prejudice or discrimination based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. At the same time, SJP manifestly rejects attempts to equate principled criticism of Zionism and Israeli policies with anti-Semitism. Furthermore, SJP condemns all acts of unlawful violence, or violence that indiscriminately targets civilians or civilian infrastructure, committed by either side in the course of the conflict. Ultimately, SJP’s strength flows from the diversity of its membership, comprising individuals of varied racial and ethnic backgrounds and political orientations, all united under these stated principles in the struggle for peace and justice in Palestine. III. CODE OF CONDUCT: SJP’s activities include educational events, film screenings, discussion forums, and demonstrations meant to promote awareness of the plight of the Palestinian people and encourage activism in solidarity with their struggle. SJP will conduct only nonviolent actions, and rejects actions that violate its guiding principles, to which all individuals or groups acting as members, representatives, or sponsors of SJP are required to adhere. More broadly, SJP will work to link the pro-Palestine movement with other movements seeking political, social, economic, and environmental justice in the Middle East and across the world. To this end, SJP may elect to endorse the programs or activities of other organizations whose principles and objectives are consistent with its own. IV. AFFILIATIONS SJP is a recognized student organization at the University of Southern California, but is not part of the University itself. In all correspondence and business transactions, it may refer to itself as an organization at USC, but not as part of USC itself. Accordingly, SJP accepts full financial and production responsibility for all activities it sponsors. SJP agrees to abide by all pertinent USC policies and regulations, which take precedence when our policies differ. SJP also recognizes and understands that the University assumes no legal liability for the actions of the organization, and that USC is not providing blanket indemnification insurance coverage for any activities of the organization, unless those activities expressly benefit and further the goals of the University, and have received prior review, approval, and consent of Campus Activities, Risk Management, and/or General Counsel.

Teaching this value to students early on in their medical/healthcare education creates an ever-growing network of caring physicians and professionals.

Trojans Teaching Trojans
Our mission is to inspire students of one discipline to be teachers of another. Trojans Teaching Trojans recognizes that though students of one academic discipline may be familiar with the ideas, theory, and knowledge of their respective program, they are oftentimes unfamiliar with academic fields outside their area of study. Our purpose is to facilitate collaboration and sharing of resources between different academic programs, for real-world success oftentimes depends on being able to apply theories and knowledge from a range of disciplines. The challenge of disjointed disciplines is well demonstrated in healthcare during which one patient requires care from a team of diverse healthcare professionals. How are medical doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers supposed to provide the best patient care possible if they each see only a portion of the whole picture? Furthermore, how is the healthcare system to succeed without the guidance of accountants, lawyers, researchers, sociologists, and all the other members of a community that make an organization work? Trojans Teaching Trojans therefore aims to facilitate the collaborative sharing of knowledge by students from a diverse range of academic disciplines. It endeavors to have students recognize their role as life-long learners who teach others what they know. By helping facilitate an intellectually-curious, culturally-sensitive, and evidence-driven community of scholars, Trojans Teaching Trojans aspires to empower people with the knowledge to lead meaningful, purposeful, and fulfilling lives.

USC Association for Clinical Experience
Lots of pre-health students volunteer in hospitals and emergency rooms, but few understand anything about the clinical conditions they encounter while they volunteer. Just the tiniest bit of basic clinical knowledge can make a huge difference in the quality of the volunteer experience. About once per month, we meet on the undergrad campus. There's a 20 minute medical student lecture followed by 20 minute lectures given by the physicians. We focus on things that we feel will be useful knowledge for an emergency room volunteer. Dr. Kim Newton is a ER attending and is our faculty mentor. She is extremely involved in the club and a great resource, especially if you are thinking about doing emergency medicine. This is a great (and fairly easy) way to get to know some very amazing emergency medicine attendings, work on your presentation skills, mentor undergraduate pre-meds, and even learn a few clinical pearls yourself.
