Low-income communities of color are more likely to live close to air pollution sources and therefore have a higher risk of cancer and respiratory illnesses such as asthma. Hoping to improve conditions for all, the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, led by Manuel Pastor, not only generates comprehensive data on environmental justice, social movements and economic equity issues, but also moves that research from university halls to public policy by partnering with change agents on the ground. #FrontlineScholars

Today’s atmospheric carbon dioxide has risen by about 40 percent above pre-industrial levels. USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute scientists, including Founding Director and Nobel Laureate George Olah and Director G.K. Surya Prakash, have developed an easy-to-make material that can scrub large amounts of carbon dioxide from the air. They hope to find a low-cost/low-energy method of turning the captured carbon dioxide into methanol — which can be burned as a fuel source and used as a chemical feedstock. #FrontlineScholars

History is best learned from those who lived it. USC Shoah Foundation — The Institute for Visual History and Education, through testimony from more than 53,000 survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides, makes this uniquely possible. With tools such as the institute’s flagship educational platform, IWitness, students gain an understanding of 20th-century history, develop 21st-century digital literacy and skills, and deepen their ethics and sense of community based on personal learning from testimonies. #FrontlineScholars
