Philadelphia Inquirer

In a column in today's Philadelphia Inquirer, journalist Patrick Kerkstra calls Temple's progress "the most remarkable and encouraging local higher education story of the last 15 years." Temple now boasts a bustling, residential campus, an improved academic reputation and some of the country's top faculty and researchers. President Ann Weaver Hart, who plans to retire at the end of this academic year, has left her mark by helping the institution get a handle on its growth. "What people tell me is that over the last several years, Temple has become an increasingly central part of the economic, social and educational life of the city," said Hart.
