Temple University seeks to create new knowledge that improves the human condition and uplifts the human spirit. To achieve this goal, we maintain our commitment to recruiting, retaining, and supporting outstanding faculty that prize diversity of thought, excel in scholarly endeavors, and support the aspirations of capable students.
The talented faculty and broad curriculum of our 28 academic programs within the College of Liberal Arts and School of Environmental Design provide superior educational opportunities to achieve the highest levels of pedagogical impact in the classroom and beyond for our talented and highly motivated students.
The OVPR provides information about about faculty recruitment, hiring, retention, promotion, and tenure, as well as professional development opportunities. Please note that the deadlines on the OVPR website are deadlines for the delivery of material to the Vice Provost for Faculty. CLA often sets earlier deadlines to allow for collegial evaluation processes that must occur before the deadlines on the OVPR website. Each semester, a calendar of CLA deadlines will be posted on the CLA website and sent to all chairs.
Policies & Procedures
One of the strengths of a successful institution is its consciousness of being a community, with shared goals and a pervasive ethos of unity and cohesion. In a college of liberal arts, building a vital sense of community requires the participants to accept a variety of commitments to and responsibilities toward it. These include but are not limited to scholarship, teaching, and contribution to the activities of departments, programs, and the college as a whole.
