News and Announcements
Alicia Arendt (FOX '08) would have never imagined that her study abroad experiences at Temple would prepare her for almost 14 years in the U.S Department of State. Having dreamt of traveling internationally since high school, Arendt committed to Temple mainly because of the countless study abroad programs.
Study abroad staff selected as a finalist in the Fulbright International Education Award
Madelyn Sullivan, program manager for Temple Exchange Programs, including two universities in Germany, applied for the Fulbright U.S Scholar program in Germany twice despite the unprecedented year.
Still, a handful of students have managed to study overseas during the pandemic, despite travel restrictions and quarantine requirements. Catalina Barroso Delarosa, a senior at Temple University, was sent home last winter only five days after arriving to study in South Korea as the pandemic began to spread. She crammed in all the activities that she could before her flight — visiting historic sites, shopping, eating out — thinking it might be her only chance at an international experience. (exerpt)
Temple University senior Emily Wilson had dreamed of going to Japan one day, but first she planned to finish college.
Then the pandemic hit and she spent a semester and a half stuck inside, watching many of her plans unravel.
“Studying abroad is one thing I could do to really shake things up in my life when everything else was standing still,” said Wilson, 22, a Central High grad from Philadelphia.
Students at Temple’s respected Rome and Japan campuses are having unforgettable semesters—and a welcome taste of normalcy—at a time when the vast majority of study abroad programs around the world have been shut down.
Dear students, colleagues, and partners,
Griffith University has been recognised with Bronze Tier status in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) at the 2020 Australian LGBTQ Inclusion Awards, which were held online.
The University was also one of only two Queensland universities to receive acknowledgement at the awards ceremony and one of ten universities nationally.
Temple Education Abroad is committed to standing against racism and social injustice in the U.S. and around the world. We condemn the unwarranted violence and senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others in the black community. The protests taking place in Philadelphia and around the world have demanded all of our attention, but this problem is not new. This is a call to action: we must all do better.
