Community Affairs and Strategic Partnerships (CASP) - The Office of Community Affairs and Strategic Partnerships (CASP) within the College of Education at Temple University is interested in securing lasting partnerships between the students and faculty and members of the Philadelphia community, providing relevant experiential learning opportunities to supplement students' classroom-based educations, and bridging students' interdisciplinary interests by supplying avenues for solving problems using different modes of thought. Located in the Ritter Annex, CASP offers the opportunity for students to explore their passions outside of the classroom, perhaps in a setting never before considered, and to exert these passions in an effort to bring about the well-being of those in need.
Intergenerational Center (IGC) - The Intergenerational Center, created in 1979, strengthens communities by bringing generations together to address critical concerns and creating opportunities for lifelong civic engagement. The Center is part of the College of Health Professions and Social Work at Temple University. The knowledge and experience we have accumulated enables us to develop, evaluate and replicate innovative programs, offer high quality training and consultation, and conduct research that examines the impact of our work and identifies promising practices. We are proud to serve as a national and international resource for organizations and communities.
Upward Bound - The Temple University Upward Bound Program will prepare Philadelphia Public and Charter High School students for admission to institutions for higher learning and success in the collegiate environment through intense academic enrichment, a summer college immersion experience, enhanced cognitive and critical thinking, and extensive interpersonal development through positive social interactions. The programs will enable students to set attainable goals and build self awareness, respect for diversity and healthy relationships with peers, staff, and professionals from industry and the community.
