Global Temple Conference- TOMORROW!

Wednesday, November 18th, 10 AM - 4PM

Howard Gittis Student Center, 2nd Floor


The Global Temple Conference was first organized in 2006 to showcase the university's international involvement across the world, promoting globalization as one of Temple's core values. The conference celebrates Temple’s global dimensions by showcasing Temple student, faculty and staff research, programs, and creative activities from around the world. In 2014, over 500 attendees and 100 presenters joined us for Global Temple.

This year's conference will feature a Plenary Session on Europe's Migration Challenge, four concurrent sessions showcasing student, faculty and staff research, programs and films; and a poster session.

New this year, there will also be a Global Information Fair in conjunction with the poster session. The fair provides the Temple community with the opportunity to learn more about the many Temple departments and programs that offer international opportunities. The conference is free and open to the Temple community and the public.
