Our Commitment to Anti-Racism

Temple University’s Office of International Affairs (OIA) commits to understanding the role that we—international students, study abroad students, and staff—play as global citizens in promoting anti-racism, diversity, equity and inclusion. By thinking globally and acting locally, we strive to foster active change, not only on campus, but also in the larger community of North Philadelphia and in the world.

We will take action in developing education focused on intercultural understanding, actively participating in anti-racist efforts across the university and within the Philadelphia community, and reviewing and modifying our internal hiring processes and opportunities for professional development.
