Mission Statement

Temple University is a national center of excellence in teaching and research with an international presence. Our talented faculty and broad curriculum of over 400 academic programs provide superior educational opportunities for academically talented and highly motivated students, without regard to their status or station in life. Temple?s richly diverse student population and the dramatic growth of our residential campus community of student scholars enrich the educational and extracurricular lives of our people. While the university especially serves students from Greater Philadelphia, it is enlivened by a rapidly increasing number of students from across Pennsylvania, throughout the nation, and around the world. We maintain an international presence with campuses in Tokyo and Rome and programs in London, Beijing, and six other locations worldwide. A longtime leader in professional education, Temple prepares the largest body of practitioners in Pennsylvania; we are among the nation?s largest educators in the combined fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, podiatry and law. In addition, we offer more than 4 dozen doctoral and more than 100 master?s degree programs that contribute to research and scholarship. Temple seeks to create new knowledge that improves the human condition and uplifts the human spirit. To achieve this goal, we maintain our commitment to recruiting, retaining, and supporting outstanding faculty who prize diversity of thought, excel in scholarly endeavors and support the aspirations of capable students.
