Join us for a virtual celebration of globalization at Temple University. With campuses on three continents–Main Campus in North America, Temple Rome in Europe and Temple Japan in Asia–and programs across the globe, Temple University truly has a global reach. Learn how the innovative virtual solutions Temple is using to promote intercultural learning are extending that reach. Attend virtual panels and events throughout the week that will demonstrate the value of technology in fostering connections and increasing access to international learning long term.
