In 2013, Temple’s Board of Trustees approved a $50 million investment in growing research at the university. Three years in, the returns on that investment have been enormous. Nearly 200 full-time faculty have been hired, the Science Education and Research Center opened on Main Campus, research expenditures soared to more than $240 million in 2015, and, most recently, Temple joined the top four percent of institutions in the U.S. to be recognized as “highest research activity” by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
