Two CLA Programs Reach Historic Milestones

   The Faculty Herald would like to congratulate two CLA programs that have celebrated historic milestones this semester. Twenty-five years ago the Department of African American Studies launched its Ph.D. degree program, the first ever of its discipline. This past October, African American Studies fêted this landmark with a conference at Temple featuring the scholarship many of its distinguished alumni with President Theobald in attendance. The Department of Religion also just commemorated the 50th year anniversary of its founding with a reception in Baltimore at the annual American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature conference.
    If any other programs are reaching momentous achievements, please let snewman@temple.edu know so we can share your accomplishment with all of our colleagues.
