Amid Trojan fanfare, USC faculty, staff and friends gathered on the university’s Health Sciences campus on Jan. 30 to celebrate the W. M. Keck Foundation’s recent, transformative naming gift. The $150 million donation serves as the lead gift for the Keck Medicine Initiative, which was announced by USC president C. L. Max Nikias at the gathering on the Harry and Celesta Pappas Quad.
