Student Affairs

Temple University's Student Affairs mission is to engage, develop, and retain students by embracing a firm commitment to building stronger learners, thinkers, doers, and leaders in our dynamic communities - locally, nationally, and world-wide. The Division embraces a holistic approach in working with and empowering Temple students personally, academically and professionally, both inside and outside the classroom. Throughout the Division, we identify and pursue opportunities to serve Temple by encouraging student involvement and participation in co-curricular activities; providing supportive services, advocacy, and education to students, their families, faculty, and staff; and welcoming our alumni.

Campus Recreation

The Department of Campus Recreation provides the university community with quality-oriented leisure time opportunities in a safe environment. These sport-related activities may take many forms, such as intramurals, sport clubs, informal recreation, special events, aquatics, group fitness, adapted recreation or student staff development. It is hoped that those individuals participating in Campus Recreation programs will gain a full appreciation of the physiological, psychological and social value of active recreation and participation; as well as a better sense of their own ability to function productively in both a cooperative and competitive environment.
