Temple Hosts the Eleventh Annual Global Temple Conference

On November 9, 2016, Temple University hosted the Global Temple Conference, a showcase which celebrated and highlighted Temple students and faculty members whose work extends over seas.

This marks the eleventh annual event, but differs from previous conferences because this year included a special exhibit of the History of Temple Rome in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Temple Rome campus.

The audience was welcomed by Temple Provost, JoAnne A. Epps and the plenary speech was presented by Zabeth Teelucksingh, Executive Director, Global Philadelphia Association.

Ms. Teelucksingh is no stranger to the university. “This university is a member of Global Philadelphia, so occasionally I am invited to the university to speak to the students about the work of the association, and of course offer internships and other opportunities. I am very happy to do that.” She said.

The conference rounded off with panel presentations as student poster displays. Senior Taylor Chenevert traveled to Albania this past summer and illustrated her experience on two posters at the conference.

“A lot of people do not realize that architectural preservation reaches all types of places and you can do so many things with that. Not a lot of people know about the Architectural Preservation major, so I just wanted to share what I was doing and what I did when I was over there doing hands on conservation work.” Chenevert said.

Some students, like Chenevert, received academic credit for their projects. But, the Global Temple committee will decide on students who had the best posters and papers at the Global Temple conference and winners will be awarded and announced later this on its website.
