Introduction from the Founding President Len Wines • “When we the University Staff Club was created in the early 1970s, there was nothing like it in all of American higher education. USC staff club was the first, and may still be the only such group: Staff members who contribute their dollars to their university in support of fellow staff members in a variety of ways.” • “We must have done the right thing because we've grown and we've flourished. Our achievements are many, and they are manifest. Join with us and see for yourself.” Len Wines, Founding President and Life member
USC Staff Club • The staff of the University of Southern California is a group of over 7,000 individuals whose highly capable efforts give essential support to USC’s educational purposes. • There would be no University Staff Club without the 500 individuals who support the goals and activities of this very important organization that has made an impact on the quality of life at USC. • From this continued support, our endowment has grown to well over $120,000.
