University holds interactive discussion on Temple’s plan for future

On June 19, Temple University leaders and the university's planning team, the Smith Group, held an open house for the Temple community as part of Visualize Temple, the plan that will direct the university's efforts in the coming decade.

The session, held in the Great Court of Mitten Hall, included an interactive dialogue on subjects including student life, housing, campus safety, parking, transportation and athletics.

“We are in the middle of summer break and the room was packed,” said Jim Creedon, senior vice president for construction, facilities and operations. “What that told me was people really did want to engage. They wanted to learn about the process, they wanted to have the chance to come and make their mark on the process.”

Students, faculty, staff and alumni can continue to share their thoughts, suggestions and dreams through the MindMixer online social community at
