Seeking Solutions to Wicked Problems

Students from four USC schools investigate and help tackle the risk of homelessness
By Christina Schweighofer
Zach Genduso ’17 went to law school to become an effective advocate for social and economic justice. Working toward that goal, he has interned for organizations that serve people living in poverty and taken the pertinent law classes. This year, a Wicked Problems Practicum (WPP) allowed him to significantly broaden his experience; the course has taken him out of the law silo into a bigger world of interdisciplinary collaborations.
