It is hard to believe that Commencement is just around the corner. Commencement “was the name given to the initiation ceremony for scholars in medieval Europe. The original college degree certified that the bearer could now instruct others in a given academic discipline.” (The UT History Corner) Our Temple Owls are well-positioned to blaze new trails, and we could not be more proud of their accomplishments. We look forward to celebrating with them in May.

CEHD has been fortunate to begin our festivities before graduates flip their tassels. From the successful awarding of a multi-year grant to expand Temple Education Scholars, to celebrating our alumni at the Amity Gann Dedication, Gallery of Success and 30 Under 30 receptions, we invite you to read more about these events and honors in this month’s newsletter. We always love to hear from you! Please reach out with your latest reason to celebrate, and we hope to see you on campus soon.

Warmly yours,

Kirsten Halker-Kratz
Assistant Dean of Development and Alumni Relations
