A student or employee who thinks he or she is being discriminated against because of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or marital status should contact this office. It is this office's responsibility to help the student file a complaint through the appropriate grievance procedures and attempt to remedy any affirmative action problem it discovers in the course of an investigation. Complaints of sexual harassment may also be reported here.
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 requires that each college or university establish due process for the resolution of academic grievances. This act also requires procedures for grievances brought by students concerning non-academic matters that are not covered by the academic grievance procedures.
Undergraduate students enrolled at Temple University have the right to appeal any academic matter in which they feel that they have been treated unfairly. The commencement of a formal grievance is most serious in nature and should take place only after all informal methods of adjudication have taken place.
For further information on academic grievance procedures, students should contact the Office of the Dean of the college in which they are enrolled. See Academic Policies and Regulations. Further information on non-academic grievances is available from the Office of the Student Affairs Ombudsperson.
Temple University is committed to providing a learning, working, and teaching environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of every member of its community, free from discriminatory conduct. Sexual harassment in any form or context is inimical to this and will not be tolerated. Sexual harassment subverts the mission and the work of the University and can threaten the career, educational experience, and well-being of students, faculty, and staff.
The University recognizes that sexual harassment may occur regardless of the formal position or status of each person involved. Sexual harassment is especially offensive, however, when it occurs in relationships between teacher and student or between supervisor and subordinate. In those situations, sexual harassment exploits unfairly the power inherent in the position of the faculty member or supervisor.
Sexual harassment also constitutes a form of sex discrimination that is illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Elementary/Secondary Education Act of 1972, and state law. In addition to any sanctions that may be imposed by the University for violation of this policy, a person who sexually harasses another person may be held personally liable to the victim and be subject to sanctions independent of those imposed by the University.
Persons who feel they have been the victim of sexual harassment may make an informal complaint to any Sexual Harassment Ombudsperson listed:
For the names of the Sexual Harassment Ombudspersons designated in a specific school or college, contact the Dean's Office.
Students, faculty, and staff may bring a formal administrative complaint of sexual harassment by filing a written complaint directly with the University's Office of Affirmative Action and are not required to utilize informal resolution procedures before filing a formal complaint.

Members of the department's two divisions, Campus Police and Security Officers, work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Campus Police Officers patrol the campus and surrounding area on foot and bicycles and in patrol cars and SUVs. The Security Officers work inside various buildings checking IDs and assisting staff and visitors.
Members of the Temple community are free to use the campus escort service seven days a week from dusk to dawn by calling 1-TRIP. Escorts will transport you to the bus stop, subway, train station, parking lots, library, and other campus buildings.
The department also offers a variety of Crime Prevention programs, including self-defense, street smarts, and big city living programs, available to students, staff, and employees on request. The Temple Police HAPKIDO club, a Korean martial arts club, meets on main campus every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Pearson Hall, room 101. For further information about these programs call Joanne Wszolek at 215-204-5870.
Crime Prevention is everyone's job:
- Main Campus
Temple University has eight (8) surface parking areas and two (2) parking garages on the Main Campus.
Debit card parking permits you to park in an assigned area when space is available. A hangtag/decal must be purchased, and it is valid for one academic year (September through August). In addition, a minimum of 24 parking entries must be purchased on your debit card at a cost of $84 (48 parking entries when entering after 3:00 PM). Your hangtag/decal and your current Temple ID card are the mechanisms that control your entrance into the parking area or garage. Parkers may conveniently purchase additional parking entries at the Office of Parking Services, located on the lower level of the Student Center. Debit card parkers may park in assigned/designated debit card parking areas up to 11:00PM. Parking after 11:00 PM will result in additional parking charges and possible enforcement procedures.
· Debit Card Hangtag/Decal - $42.00 (good for one academic year:
September through August)
Hourly rates, which are posted at the entrances of the Liacouras Center Garage and at the cashiers' booths, apply when your debit card is not used.
Note: Availability of areas is subject to change during summer and holidays, and for a few special events. Having a parking hangtag/ decal does not ensure space in a particular area.
There are two intra-campus shuttle buses making continuous loops, which run approximately every 10 to 15 minutes between the Temple Train Station and various shuttle bus stops. The buses run during the Fall and Spring semesters. The service is free, and all parkers are encouraged to use the buses.

As the official alumni organization of Temple University, the General Alumni Association (GAA) is dedicated to strengthening the University and enhancing relationships between and among the University, the Association, and current and future alumni. Any former student with an earned Temple degree is a member of the GAA. Additionally, all alumni who have graduated in the past ten years are members of The Young Alumni Association (YAA).
The GAA hosts such events as Founder's Dinner and regional alumni outreach programs receptions as well as the student oriented Student/Alumni Mentor Program through which current students are given exposure to alumni in a wide variety of professions for the purpose of career exploration.
Upon graduation, alumni are urged to keep the University informed of changes in address and to continue their association with Temple University through the many services of the GAA Office of Alumni Relations.
