Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Temple University

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



The doctoral university with more than 35,000 students is dedicated to liberal arts study, athletics and research. Three years of funding will support examination of three approaches to addressing college students’ basic needs in cross-sector partnerships confronting food security through food waivers and scholarships, to subsidized housing adjacent to their universities. This research will be used to identify avenues to scale up these programs.
