for knowledge and the rigors of intellectual discourse drive the modern university.
Research is at the heart of this endeavor. Temple University is at the top tier of a
group of schools and colleges around the country for its commitment to graduate research
and its ability to generate federal funds. But large funded projects are only part
of the life of the research university. Each day, students and faculty members are
engaged individually and collaboratively in the investigation of social, scientific, and
humanistic endeavors. Our nationally ranked arts programs foster an environment for
the creation of new works. It is this synergy between teaching and research that
promotes excellence within all of our graduate programs here at Temple.

major facilities for the support of individual and group research projects for both
faculty and students. Free accounts are provided to students for accessing both the
Internet and other technological resources. Computer labs, available nights and
