After a 45-year long career at Temple, president Richard Englert announced over the summer that he will be retiring by the end of this academic year. Before Englert can go, Temple needs to find a new president.
The Board of Trustees established the Presidential Search Committee on Monday. This committee is designed to study the interests of Temple’s students and staff, the needs of the community, and more. The committee hopes that with these insights, they will find the next, best suited president for Temple.
The team is made up of thirteen board members, two faculty members, and the president of Temple Student Government, Quinn Litsinger. A search consulting firm to assist the committee will also be selected.
Later in the process, the university said that students, shareholders and alumni will be consulted to give their input.
