College of Education Statement of Inclusivity
The College of Education has issued a statement of inclusivity to highlight the underlying values of our organization in support of all students, staff, and faculty. These values are predicated on promoting education—in schools, in the workplace, in organizations, and in the community—as a critically important way to achieve social justice and equality of opportunity.
The College of Education’s Intergenerational Center has received a grant last month to support programs for grandparents and alternative guardians raising children in Philadelphia. But what is the Intergenerational Center — and what are the challenges North Philadelphia grandparents face when raising children?
Eight new tenured and tenure-track faculty members have joined the College of Education this year. The range of factors that attracted the newest faculty members to Temple are as varied as their fields of expertise. For the College of Education’s Renée M. Tobin, a national leader in the study of personality and social development in the context of school counseling, Temple’s mission and urban location were critical factors.
The College of Education works to support children of Philadelphia through partnerships with the School District of Philadelphia. A new on-campus early childhood and community engagement center will make learning more accessible to local children.
