Temple Reorganizes Several Schools and Colleges

Temple has reorganized several of its schools and colleges. Ambler College has been renamed the School of Environmental Design and is now part of the College of Liberal Arts. Additionally, the School of Social Administration and the College of Health Professions have become the College of Health Professions and Social Work.

The School of Environmental Design remains based at Temple’s Ambler Campus and continues to comprise the Department of Community and Regional Planning, the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture and the Center for Sustainable Communities.

A number of centers operated by the School of Social Administration will be transferred to the College of Health Professions and Social Work, including the Center for Social Policy and Community Development, the Center for Intervention and Practice Research and the Institute on Protective Services. No programs or departments in the current College of Health Professions will be administratively affected by the reorganization.

These changes will foster opportunities for interdisciplinary and collaborative learning while conserving resources. “The alliance gives us new opportunities for strengthening our academic resources and exploring mutual goals through cooperative research and scholarship on both campuses,” says Teresa Scott Soufas, dean of the College of Liberal Arts.

In the new College of Health Professions and Social Work, an important area for collaboration is the schools’ shared interest in healthcare access and health disparities that exist for many individuals in the Philadelphia area and nationwide, notes Ronald Brown, who will become dean of the new college and previously was dean of the College of Health Professions. He says, “This joint endeavor will allow us to share resources and promote very important collaborations between the two schools, mirroring trends in the current professional worlds of healthcare and social work.” —Eryn Jelesiewicz, SCT ’89, ’05
