University College's Mission
In March 2004, the Board of Trustees established University College with the responsibility to assure the quality, effectiveness and staffing of academic programs and courses offered at Temple campuses, centers, and other off-site locations. University College coordinates the academic offerings of Temple University's Ambler, Center City, Fort Washington and Harrisburg campuses as well as extension services, distance/online learning and summer programs. Directors of campuses and units in University College meet regularly with the Vice Provost for University College and participate in University academic, strategic and fiscal planning.
University College assures a full and regular rotation of courses offered at locations for which it is responsible. It also oversees and monitors the assignment and appointment of faculty at those campuses, centers and locations to assure that programs and courses offered there are staffed by persons who demonstrate outstanding credentials, experience, and performance. A central focus for University College is keeping regional campuses connected to Temple's mission and organization.
