Global Temple Conference

The 14th Annual Global Temple Conference

Celebrating Temple's Global Dimensions

Wednesday, February 1, 2023
Howard Gittis Student Center

The Global Temple Conference returns in 2023! The day-long symposium celebrates Temple’s global dimensions and our enduring commitment to global education and engagement. As we emerge from a pandemic that continues to have far-reaching implications, we will bring the Temple community together from around the world to explore how we can move forward to build a more equitable, sustainable future. We will engage in critical dialogue; highlight the wide array of internationally focused work of our students, faculty and staff; and showcase Temple’s global opportunities. Join us to gain inspiration for your teaching and your students!

The conference will be held at Howard Gittis Student Center with a plenary address and sessions throughout the day. A global information fair will showcase the many opportunities and resources available. The conference is free and open to the Temple community and the public.

We encourage faculty who have taught abroad, engaged in global research or service, collaborated with global partners or teach internationally focused courses to submit a proposal. Students and staff with international research or experience are also welcome to submit a proposal. We encourage proposals of various formats - papers, panel discussions, posters, films, multimedia, performances, installations, and exhibits.



Proposal Submission

We invite Temple faculty, students and staff, as groups or individuals, to submit a proposal by November 15, 2022.  Proposals for poster submissions are due by December 6, 2022. Proposals should be submitted electronically using our online form. All submissions will be reviewed by the conference committee; presenters will be notified of the decisions on or about December 6, 2022 (December 12, 2022 for posters).
