Academic Partnerships


Under the leadership of Haven Lin-Kirk, Vice Dean of Design, USC is piloting a spring undergraduate design seminar in collaboration with Blue Sky Center, exploring way-finding, branding, and information-sharing across the rural landscape. Led by artist and Blue Sky Center board member, Eric Junker and Sherin Guirguis, the pilot course is the first step in developing collaborative educational programs that bring academic institutions interested in working in rural communities to the Cuyama Valley.
