Join us this fall for the Libraries’ free public programming series, Beyond the Page. This season features programs that explore the role of communities in our lives. How are we shaped by the language we use, the institutions we take part in, the places we’ve lived, and the people around us? The Beyond the Page series also consists of a variety of other programs, exhibitions, concerts, and events developed around timely topics and in collaboration with our on-and-off campus partners.
On Wednesday, September 20, check out our first themed program of the fall semester: Creating a Welcoming Campus Community in 2017. This program will ask us to consider: What does a welcoming campus look like? How can we build a campus community that is truly welcoming? Meet us at 12:00 PM in the Paley Library Lecture Hall (1210 Polett Walk, Ground Floor) for a conversation with Temple faculty, staff, students, and community leaders about the extent to which Temple is a welcoming place for international students, immigrants, and students and staff of all backgrounds.
This program takes place during the Welcoming America organization’s Welcoming Week. This annual series of events brings together immigrants, refugees, and native-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone.
All programs are free and open to all, and make sure to check out our program schedule for updates and new programs as we move into fall.
