Temple University, a comprehensive public research university, is the 28th largest in America. Founded in 1884 by Russell Conwell, Temple College was chartered in 1888, and incorporated as Temple University in 1907. Since 1965, Temple has been one of three state-related senior research universities in Pennsylvania; the other two are the University of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania State University.
Four of Temple’s seven Pennsylvania locations are in Philadelphia. In addition to the 115-acre Main Campus and 17-acre Health Sciences Center, Temple has two locations in Center City Philadelphia: the School of Podiatric Medicine and Temple University Center City, which offers credit and noncredit education and is located across from City Hall. In Philadelphia’s northern suburbs, there is the 186-acre campus in Ambler and a location in Fort Washington offering graduate and noncredit courses. A seventh location is in the state’s capital, Harrisburg, where Temple offers graduate degree and certificate programs.
