Prioritizing the health and well-being of everyone.

Since the earliest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Temple has responded with pace—and with purpose—to the rapidly changing environment. Our priority is always the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, and our commitment to our students’ well-being, education and experience at Temple.

It takes all members of the Temple community working together. We’re here to provide the support and resources you need.

Public Health Pillars

Temple remains committed to our four pillars of public health. Each of us must do our part to keep our campuses and communities safe by adhering to the behaviors outlined below, which are essential until a vaccine is available. Temple students and employees are expected to practice these behaviors when they’re on campus, using public transportation and in public spaces. 

In this video, Senior Director of Student and Employee Health Services Mark Denys provide an update on the ways in which we continue to keep our community safe.
