May 2021

May is just around the corner and like the flowers there are many things blooming or getting ready to do so within the College of Education and Human Development.

While certainly a school year like no other, we are preparing for Commencement, and grateful to be able to offer an in-person option for our graduates this year, of whom over 200 have chosen to participate.  Our faculty continue to teach, conduct research, and provide valuable presentations such as the Equity Series for Educational Leaders.  And, as part of Alumni Week on May 12 at 7 p.m., there will be a virtual panel webinar on Pedagogy Post-Pandemic: What Have We Learned?, featuring CEHD’s 2021 30-Under-30 honoree, our 2021 Gallery of Success honoree, and two other Temple alums holding high-level educational administration positions from around the country addressing the topic, which should definitely be an interesting and timely discussion you will not want to miss.

Additionally, the Ritter Complex Renovation continues.  Great progress is being made and the project remains on target to be completed by February 2022.  If you would like to see some of the photos, visit the renovation web page.

We are excited for the completion of this academic year, and even more excited for the year ahead with in-person classes planned for the Fall and the dedication of the renovated Ritter Complex insight. We look forward to being able to welcome you back to campus and maybe even visit you in your town as well. 

Here is to things continuing to bloom and a fresh beginning at Temple University and in the College of Education and Human Development.
