Global Temple Conference

Global Temple Conference

Each Fall semester, Temple University holds a day-long symposium to explore and celebrate Temple’s wide-ranging international work. Global Temple features student, staff and faculty research in a variety of programs and creative frameworks. Proposals in various formats are welcome, and should be organized broadly around four pillars of university excellence: scholarship, teaching, creativity, and service. Each year, Global Temple features proposals in the form of papers, panel discussions, posters, films, performances, and exhibits. Check out previous conference sessions and get more information at the Global Temple website.
