Office of Affirmative Action

Sandra A. Foehl, Associate Vice President 
109 University Services Building 
(215) 204-7303/7335 

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. 

Grievance Procedures

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. 

Sexual Harassment

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: 

  • College of Allied Health Professions - Donna Weiss (215) 707-4812
  • Center City Campus - Denise Berardi (215) 204-4358
  • Ambler College - Wanda Lewis-Campbell (215) 283-1424
  • Tyler School of Art - Deborah Martin (215) 782-2883
  • Main Campus -  Juanita Lavalais (215)879-8632, Mary Middlebrook (215) 204-7747,  (215) 204-9625,  Kathleen Richards (215) 204-3115, Michael Silverstein 
Additional Ombudspersons have been designated; contact the Office of Affirmative Action, (215) 204-7303/7335 or the Sexual Assault Counseling and Education Program, (215) 204-7276. 

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.

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.

Excluding overnight parking, the cost for student guaranteed access parking is $57 per month, payable in advance, every four months ($228 for 4 months parking). Your current hangtag/decal and your current Temple ID card are the mechanisms that control the entrance into parking areas or garages.
