Temple welcomes another boom crop of faculty recruits
The next wave has arrived.
For the second academic year in a row, Temple is welcoming more than 50 new tenured and tenure-track faculty members to campus.
The latest crop of faculty hires is part of an unprecedented surge in Temple’s recruitment of prominent faculty members.
And with 86 faculty searches still active, the flood of new arrivals isn’t likely to stop anytime soon. By the fall of 2006, Temple will have hired approximately 150 new tenured or tenure-track faculty members over a two-year period — an astonishing development at a time when many universities are experiencing reduced funding and staff cutbacks.
