On Oct. 13, Temple's School of Medicine was named and dedicated in honor of Lewis Katz, a 1963 Temple graduate, longtime trustee and generous benefactor to the university. His values of hard work, dedication and service are a core part of the school's character and mission.
New hires for the 2015-2016 academic year include distinguished professors from the nation's leading institutions that represent a wide range of disciplines. They were recruited as part of the university's initiative to hire nationally and internationally prominent faculty.
Rising graduation rates, an increase in academic reputation and world-renowned faculty catapulted Temple to its highest-ever ranking. Now at No. 115, Temple has risen an unprecedented 17 spots in U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings in the past five annual editions.
