Why is my completion of this program required?

Alcohol and other drugs, sex and gender - base discrimmination, harassment, sexual assault and interpersonal violence are real issues on all college campuses and beyond. In support of Temple University's commitment to maintain a positive academic environment that is free from any form harassment or bias and to provide the community with knowledge and skills needed to fulfill these responsibilities, all incoming Temple University students must complete the program.
