Awards Sponsors

The Awards are named in honor of our donor, John H. Livingstone, SBM ’49, who has generously supported undergraduate research for the past 18 years.

As a graduate of Temple University, sponsoring these awards is a way of giving back for my education. The awards also offer young people an opportunity to help them through school. I also wanted to do something specifically for the library—people often tend to focus on classes or sports programs but often forget about the library. But the library is for everyone!

—John Livingstone, SBM ’49

The Awards in Diversity and Social Justice and General Education are generously sponsored by Gale, a Cengage company. Gale also sponsors the awards reception, when we’re able to have one.

When [Gale] became involved in the partnership with Temple a number of years ago, it was important to us as a company because we celebrate lifelong learning whether you're a preschooler or a kindergartner learning to read for the first time…to the college student and your experience that you're undertaking as part of the Livingstone Undergraduate Research Award program. This experience is not just important for your academic career and developing those critical thinking skills but also professionally when you think about the ability to problem solve or come up with a solution when you have a job and you're out there in the real world and in life.

We encourage you to make the library a part of that [research] process: make them a partner in your pathway to success whether that's understanding “how do I answer this question differently” or “is there another resource that I'm not thinking about that may be useful to helping answer this question,” the great staff at Temple University Libraries are there to help you along the way with this process.
