2005-06 Pennsylvania and Metropolitan Philadelphia Survey Fellowship

Temple’s Institute for Public Affairs invites applications from Temple faculty for the 2005-06 Pennsylvania and Metropolitan Philadelphia Survey Fellowship. In the fall, the Institute for Survey Research will conduct the third annual Pennsylvania and Metropolitan Philadelphia Survey.

In conjunction with the survey, the 2005-06 PMP Survey Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to Temple faculty to collect data of the highest quality from household residents on a topic of the researcher’s choice related to the survey’s central theme: the quality of life in the state and region. Resources provided by the fellowship include:

• the opportunity to contribute items to the questionnaire for the 2005 PMP Survey;
• sole access to data from this supplemental portion of the survey for the duration of the fellowship;
• a reduction in teaching responsibilities of one course in each of two semesters;
• one summer’s salary;
• funds to employ a graduate student for research assistance for 12 months.

One fellowship will be awarded in association with the 2005 PMP Survey, based on a competitive proposal process. Proposals must be submitted by Feb. 25. For more information, see the complete request for applications on the Institute for Public Affairs Web site at www.temple.edu/ipa.

Women’s basketball team is No. 24 in the nation

After defeating two ranked teams and compiling a 12-game winning streak, the women’s basketball team earned its first-ever national ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. The Owls, who are 15-3 overall and 7-0 on the Atlantic 10, gained the No. 24 spot after knocking off Richmond, 82-62, on Jan. 23 and then-No. 22 Rutgers, 71-60, on Dec. 13.

“This is a reward for all of the players that have come through Temple,” head coach Dawn Staley said. “The girls have worked so hard for this, and they have finally gotten to see their hard work develop into something tangible. This is a huge step towards our goal of becoming a national powerhouse.”

Temple’s 12 consecutive wins is currently the fourth-longest streak in the country. It also ties a Temple record, dating back to the 1923-24 season, when the Owls played a perfect 12-0 schedule.
