Commonwealth Legislation

As a Commonwealth-affiliated university, Temple's relationship with Pennsylvania is vital to meeting our historic mission. A nonpreferred appropriation in the Commonwealth's budget helps Temple keep tuition costs low and spurs the improvement of our facilities and creative research that improves the lives of countless people across the country. Our office is dedicated to supporting this relationship though lobbying legislators, providing the Commonwealth access to Temple's rich intellectual capital, supplying legislators with hardworking interns and delivering services to communities in need across Pennsylvania.
