Across the country, we are witnessing a rise in incidents of antisemitism, Islamophobia and other acts of hatred. Such acts are inconsistent with Temple University’s mission and values. Our community is strengthened by its commitment to tolerance, empathy and compassion.
We are dedicated to supporting every member of our community, especially during times of crisis. University resources are available to the entire Temple community, and we encourage you to seek the support and help you need.
Dean of Students
The Office of the Dean of Students can provide guidance and connect all students to campus resources. This office has also reached out individually and is coordinating with other offices across campus to support potentially impacted students.
Our Student Conduct Code outlines the expectations and responsibilities of every member of our community. All students are encouraged to review the code and remember that it is in place to ensure a safe and community-minded learning environment for all. If you have questions about the Student Conduct Code, or to report possible violations of the code, contact Student Conduct and Community Standards or the Dean of Students.
If students, faculty or staff feel unsafe or become aware of threats or acts of violence within our community, they are encouraged to immediately contact Temple Police. Students, faculty and staff can use the TUSafe app to request emergency services or walking escorts.
Tuttleman Counseling Services (Students)
Located on Main Campus, Tuttleman Counseling Services provides culturally sensitive services to support the psychological health of the diverse community of Temple students.
TELUS Health (Employees)
TELUS Health, Temple’s employee assistance program, provides free confidential counseling, consultations, referrals and online access to hundreds of articles, toolkits, podcast webinars and more.
You can access the TELUS Health Employee Assistance program platform through TUportal, in the TUApplication section of the Staff Tools tab.
Messages for Peace
Members of the campus community can visit the IDEAL office or the Office of the Dean of Students to continue participating in Messages for Peace. The ongoing project, sponsored by IDEAL, the Division of Student Affairs and College of Liberal Arts, invites students, faculty members and staff to draft anonymous notes related to reconciliation and healing as we reflect on the continuing crisis in Israel and Gaza.
Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership
Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL) at Temple prioritizes and creates safe spaces where the diverse perspectives of our students, faculty, staff and Temple’s neighbors are encouraged, engaged and empowered.
Members of the Temple community can contact IDEAL to schedule listening sessions or trainings related to diversity education.

Equal Opportunity Compliance
Equal Opportunity Compliance serves as a focal point of Temple's institution-wide efforts for equal opportunity, equal access, and affirmative action, providing direction through information, assistance, and complaint investigation for those who have experienced discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.
Equal Opportunity ombudspersons are available to speak with students, faculty and staff throughout the university, without regard to school/college affiliation or physical location. Locate the name and contact information for your school’s ombudsperson.
Ethics and Compliance Office
The Ethics and Compliance Office is committed to fostering a culture of integrity and ethical behavior throughout the university. Office staff are available to provide guidance on relevant rules and procedures and to conduct or assist with investigations of possible violations.
