Temple University Board of Trustees Chairman Patrick O’Connor has served Temple University since 1971, when he was 28 years old.
O’Connor took a hiatus from the board between 1984 and 2001, later being elected Chairman in 2008. After a combined 30 years of service, the chairman has had a hand in many important decisions about Temple’s future.
This week, Mr. O’Connor sat down with Temple Update for an interview on a wide range of topics, including the proposed stadium, the false statistical reporting by the Fox School of business, his representation of Bill Cosby, and what he hopes his legacy will be.
