Student services, like Student Health Services, Tuttleman Counseling Services and Disability Resources and Services, will remain open for the remainder of the spring semester while Temple University transitions to online learning, according to a university announcement on March 12.
These services, along with academic services like academic student support services, like the Student Sucess Center and advising and career counseling, will still be available as well but may transition online services as well, wrote Dan Berman, vice provost for undergraduate studies, Zebulon Kendrick, vice provost for undergraduate education and Stephanie Ives, associate vice president and dean of students wrote in the announcement.
