Academic Affairs

The responsibility of the Academic Affairs Committee is to hear from students about issues regarding
their academic experience at Temple University and work with administrators to address those
issues. We will be running a series of surveys and focus groups throughout the year to assess student
perceptions of topics ranging from the General Education program at Temple to their experiences with
academic advisors. This valuable information from students will lead to initiatives that are aimed at
continuing to improve the excellent academic experience provided by Temple University.
