Temple University is proud to be recognized a United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) member organization.
Established in 2010, the UNAI initiative connects higher education institutions in 145+ countries that share a commitment for realizing United Nations goals and mandates. Learn more about the specific goals and mandates of this initiative on the United Nations website.
UNAI membership is a natural extension of Temple's commitment to widen the reach of higher education, a commitment the university has upheld since its founding in 1884 by Russell Conwell. Temple's culture and curricula emphasize active citizenship and social impact, creating transformative opportunities for faculty, staff and students to lead thoughtful and deliberate change in Philadelphia and across the globe.
The honor of UNAI membership not only provides Temple with recognition for its past humanitarian achievements, but also provides support for future endeavors. Temple now has access to UN-affiliated scholarships, fellowships, internship opportunities, collaborative research development resources, invitations to present at UN conferences & workshops, and connection to UN offices for events. In addition, being a UNAI member provides the university a platform for exchanging ideas with peer institutions and developing best practices to further advance Temple and UN goals.
