In President Neil D. Theobald's inaugural address, the president is expected to lay out his six point plan for the university, that in addition to student debt will  focus on teaching, research, diversity, entrepreneurship, and a commitment to the city of Philadelphia. "Temple is Philadelphia's public university," Theobald, said when interviewed in his office in Sullivan Hall. "Our mission is to address issues in Philadelphia, and we're willing to put all kinds of resources into that." Theobald became Temple University's 10th President in January, and will deliver his speech at the historic Baptist Temple.
