Awards Sponsors

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 17 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.

“...At Gale, our publishing strategy remains focused on prioritizing perspectives that deepen our collective understanding of social justice issues like racism, sexual orientation, and gender identity, that will help us shape a better future. If you look at the topics of the award winners in these categories the last few years, whether it's a focus on the internment of Japanese-Americans, women's rights issues, a look into important figures locally in Black history within the Philadelphia chapter of the Black Panther Party, or the political climate facing international students within higher education, there has never been more of a need to continue the great work started by Temple students, as we reflect on recent events and the conversations that these types of projects can stimulate, challenge and explore. While I would very much enjoy being with you this year in-person to celebrate this scholarship...I'll look forward to seeing the great work presented virtually this spring and congratulations to all of you who are participating in this year's awards.”

—Roger Strong, Vice President of North American Sales, Gale, a Cengage company
