Faculty and Staff
Temple University is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all in every aspect of its operation. The university has pledged not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, disability, marital status or veteran status.
This policy extends to all educational, service and employment programs of the university.
Temple faculty, staff and visiting scholars from diverse backgrounds work together with the understanding that through our differences we find common ground. The university offers diversity related resources for faculty and staff members.
Faculty Recruitment and Retention
The Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL) supports the university in its goal to attract and retain women and faculty of color at all levels of the institution and ensures that each faculty member understands Temple's mission and passion for diversity.

Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of Women
The Faculty Senate is made up of a rich diversity of faculty from all university schools and colleges. The Senate and its committees have the responsibility of acting as advisors to the administration and the Board of Trustees.
The Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of Women considers areas such as salaries, retirement funds and promotion policies in which women are thought to be treated inequitably and recommends changes in policies to correct inequalities where they exist.
Temple University Women of Color (TU-WoC)
Designed for Temple University women across ethnicities, Temple University Women of Color (TU-WoC) provides a place for women to engage on relevant issues of the day within a safe, inclusive and supportive environment. The group fosters a support system for women working in the academy as staff members, administration, and faculty and sponsors networking opportunities for women who may experience a sense of isolation and lack of affirmation in the university community.
