Throughout the year the College of Public Health and Temple University host a variety of events on topics that promote cultural awareness, inclusion and equity. Below is a selection of events planned for Fall, 2017.

Upcoming Events: Fall 2017

Pushing the Intersections @ Temple, to be held on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, in Alter Hall, MBA Commons, Room 702, from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  The goal of this event is to build on the information gleaned from the first diversity symposium held in 2014. We want to develop clear action plans and implementation strategies for supporting diversity (LGBTQ, internationals, persons of color, seniors, persons with disabilities, etc.) at Temple so all stakeholders, regardless of difference, feel welcome and comfortable.  This event is co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost; Committee on the Status of Faculty of Color (FOC); the Faculty Senate; the Council on Diverse Constituencies; Temple Libraries; the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management; the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equality, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL) and the Academic Center on Research in Diversity (ACCORD).  View the full Diversity Symposium schedule at: http://www.temple.edu/senate/documents/2017_Diversity_Symposium_Schedule.pdf

Health Disparities and Community Health Public Health and the Challenge of Incarceration:  Dean’s Seminar Series.  Featured Speaker: Robert E. Fullilove, Ed.D. To be held 10/27/2017, Walk Auditorium, Ritter Hall.  The American system of prisons and prisoners—described by its critics as the prison–industrial complex—has grown rapidly since 1970. Those who enter and leave this system are increasingly Black or Latino, poorly educated, lacking vocational skills, struggling with drugs and alcohol, and disabled. Few correctional facilities mitigate the educational and/or skills deficiencies of their inmates, and most inmates will return home to communities that are ill equipped to house or rehabilitate them. A more humanistic and community-centered approach to incarceration and rehabilitation may yield more beneficial results for individuals, communities, and, ultimately, society. This event is sponsored by the College of Public Health.  More information and registration information available athttp://mailchi.mp/0c213cf1ada6/join-us-temple-university-reception-at-apha-423319?e=895f92314b
