In a major reorganization, Temple University has moved out its provost, chief operating officer, head of advancement and two other senior administrators.
The moves came on the first day of classes and less than two months into the tenure of new president Jason Wingard and as colleges around the country face another challenging year, with COVID-19 cases surging again.
“This action will forge a leadership foundation for the next phase of Temple University’s evolution and advancement,” Wingard said in an announcement to the university community Monday evening after The Inquirer asked about the changes. “If our goal is to achieve best-in-class status as an academic enterprise AND optimize the visibility and reputation of the Temple value proposition, a high-performance and collaborative management structure is critical.”
