Lewis Katz, a vibrant member of the Temple University community and recent honorary degree recipient, was killed in a plane crash on May 31, 2014. Katz was also a long-time member of the Temple Board of Trustees. His death is a tragedy and incalculable loss for Temple.
Days before Temple's Commencement, more than 40 of our graduates attended Mayor Michael Nutter's citywide graduation celebration. This event draws hundreds of Philadelphia college and university students who collectively "toss their caps" to show their jubilation.
Seven Temple University graduate students were awarded prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships Program grants. Temple chemistry students made a particularly strong showing, with three awardees.
