Temple University has defined international programs or group travel into two categories: Temple-branded and Temple-sponsored. The following includes characteristics of the two types. Depending on the classification, programs or groups will be required to meet specific standards in order to qualify for approval for travel.

  • have administrative support from school/college/admin unit on Main Campus.
  • advertise as a Temple-organized program.
  • typically involve a program leader/Temple staff or representative on-site.
  • have an identified partner on-site.
  • have run at least once pre-COVID.

Temple-sponsored programs or group travel

  • do not always have a program leader/Temple staff/representative on site.
  • have varied on-site infrastructure depending on partner.
  • may or may not have run pre-COVID.
