The heart of Temple’s evolving community of students and faculty.

Temple’s Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (known as “IDEAL”) creates brave spaces where the diverse perspectives of our students, faculty, staff and Temple’s neighbors are encouraged, engaged and empowered. We don’t always agree, but our goal is to create and sustain an inclusive community where all members feel valued and supported.
Title IX
Title IX is a federal law that makes sure that every member of the Temple community has equal access to the university’s educational resources, full participation in all of Temple’s activities and protection from discrimination based on sexual identity. Beyond the legal stuff, the Title IX Office supports Temple’s inclusive learning and working environment by providing education and training, helpful resources, and an equitable resolution process.
Equal Opportunity Compliance
No unlawful discrimination or harassment, no unfair treatment by race or color, ethnic or national origin, sex (including pregnancy), marital status, religion, age, disability, veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation or genetic information. Not at work or in class or campus activities. That’s Temple University’s policy and practice. That’s the law. How can we help?
Disability Network
At Temple, we don’t see disability as a lack of ability but as a lack of solutions that enable individuals to maximize their ability to succeed. As a university, we provide a welcoming and empowering environment for all students, faculty, staff and campus visitors with disabilities. Through collaboration with campus partners, we provide accommodations to help ensure that people of all abilities have the opportunity to fully participate in classes and activities with ease.
