THE NINTH ANNUAL GLOBAL TEMPLE CONFERENCE

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12th, 2014

 

Please join us for the 9th annual Global Temple Conference! At this day-long symposium on Wednesday November 12th we will explore and celebrate Temple’s wide ranging international work. As in past years, we’ll feature student, staff and faculty research, plus a variety of programs and creative ventures. We welcome proposals for various formats-–papers, panel discussions, posters, films, performances, & exhibits—organized broadly around four pillars of university excellence: scholarship, teaching, creativity, and service.

Prizes for the best student papers and posters will be awarded. Meeting at the Howard Gittis Student Center, we begin with a keynote address (speaker TBA). We’ll then feature presentations and sessions throughout the day, and conclude with a reception for attendees.

This conference is free and open to all members of the Temple University community.
