The Office of Community Relations interacts on an ongoing basis with community leaders in the eight zip codes around Temple Main and Health Sciences Campuses. The university's Campus Community Council is an advisory panel consisting of Temple officials and community leaders. The council provides an opportunity for community members to provide input on important endeavors being undertaken by the university and allows university officials to hear from neighbors.
Community members served as a sounding board during the recent development of the university’s Temple 20/20 framework for development. University leadership, including President Ann Weaver Hart, met with community members to hear what they would like from Temple’s developments, and much what the community recommended was incorporated into the framework. Residential and civic representatives who are interested in connecting with Temple's Office of Community Relations can contact Andrea D. Swan.
