Temple University

Temple University is a state-related public research university in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Temple University was founded in 1884 by Dr. Russell Conwell and became known as Temple College in 1888. In 1907, the college became a fully accredited university. Temple University is the 28th largest university in the United States, the third largest provider of professional education in the country, and known for its programs in law, education, media, business, health sciences, architecture, and music.

Temple is a state-related university, meaning it receives public funds and offers reduced tuition for Pennsylvania residents but is under independent control. This differs from the schools in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) and is a status shared only with the University of Pittsburgh and the historically black Lincoln University. Pennsylvania State University is similarly a state-related university, although it is also a land-grant university, putting it in a slightly different category. Usually, tuition at state-related universities is higher than the tuition at the PASSHE schools due to the independence of the institution.

Temple University have a large and robust study abroad program with campuses in Rome and Tokyo, programs in London, Beijing, Paris, Mumbai and other sites around the world. Our president Dr. Hart and her husband fund a scholarship program to pay for first-year students passport fees.

Temple Universitys talented faculty and broad curriculum of nearly 300 academic programs provide superior educational opportunities for academically talented and highly motivated students, without regard to their status or station in life. Temples richly diverse student population and the dramatic growth of our residential campus community of student scholars enrich the educational and extracurricular life 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. Temple University maintains an international presence with campuses in Tokyo and Rome and programs in London, Beijing, and six other locations worldwide.
