Resources for COVID-19 and Beyond

During a time of great uncertainty and change, connection and information is a more important resource than ever before. Today's problems could be amplified or completely altered in a matter of days or hours, so it is vital that organizations and thought leaders frequently share knowledge, dispel rumors, and offer insight.

To meet this need, the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate launches the resource Lusk Perspectives.

Hosted by Professor and Lusk Center Director Richard K. Green, Lusk Perspectives offers timely analysis and shares accurate data vetted by leading experts on the latest developments and observations concerning COVID-19.

Once interviews are conducted, resources and videos will be made available here and on podcast channels as soon as possible.
