The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research builds on the diverse resources held at the University of Southern California to offer a unique research opportunity to students and scholars around the world.

It distinguishes itself from other Holocaust and Genocide centers not only through its unique resources but also through its focus on the interdisciplinary study of currently under-researched areas.  

The Center views Holocaust and Genocide Studies as inherently interdisciplinary. This is not set out as the work of various disciplines working together, but rather the transcendence of differentiated disciplines to bring innovative understanding as well as a global approach.

The founding director of the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research is Wolf Gruner, Shapell-Guerin Chair in Jewish Studies and Professor of History.
