WHEN TEMPLE University president Neil Theobald assesses the challenges facing the university, he can consult with senior administrators, faculty, trustees and a cadre of donors and alumni. But the university's 10th president, whose tenure began in January 2013, also has other valuable resources: 22 freshmen in his "Organizational Change at Temple University" course, which wrapped up Monday. The yearlong course examines challenges facing the school and asks students to identify and address other obstacles, such as campus safety, student health needs, dining services and financial literacy.

According to Temple president David Adamany, John Chaney will remain the school's basketball coach next season. Adamany said just that in a telephone interview yesterday, stating: "He will be coaching Temple basketball next season.

Peter Liacouras, president of Temple University, yesterday hailed Bill and Camille Cosby's $20 million gift to Spelman College in Atlanta as "an absolutely wonderful event. " Cosby is a Temple graduate and serves on the university's board of trustees. In 1986, Bell of Pennsylvania and General Foods Corp. each gave Temple $50,000 in scholarship funds in the Cosbys' name. Cosby is a Conwell Fellow at Temple, which means he has personally donated in excess of $10,000 to the school.

A Philadelphia sports era is ending. Temple president Peter Liacouras, who will officially retire on Friday, put more emphasis on sports than any other modern college president in this region. He began his 18-year reign by saying he expected Temple's football team to get to the Sugar Bowl. The jokes still haven't stopped about that one. Liacouras hired John Chaney, now a Philadelphia icon, to be Temple's basketball coach, fought to build the school's new basketball arena, and had a sports-loving former Temple trackman and freshman football player named Bill Cosby buy out the contracts of a couple of Owls football coaches.

With Temple to play Indiana Sunday in the NCAA tournament, Neil D. Theobald didn't pause Friday when asked where his loyalties lie. "There is no doubt on that one," the Temple president said from Dayton, Ohio, where he watched the Owls beat North Carolina State. "I'm all in for the Owls. " That's not surprising for a Temple president, except that this one used to be an Indiana Hoosier as recently as December. Theobald became Temple's president in January after working for 20 years in Indiana, most recently as the school's senior vice president and chief financial officer.

The president and chief executive of Temple University Health System will step down, he said Friday. Edmond F. Notebaert's announcement comes barely two months after Temple settled a long, acrimonious, and expensive labor dispute with 1,500 of its nurses and allied health professionals. While Notebaert, 66, who will also leave his post as senior executive vice president of health sciences at Temple University, counts the dispute as the most disappointing aspect of his tenure, he said that no one was forcing him from the job. "I love Temple," he said.

It's not quite "Temple University-New Jersey," but Camden County College yesterday moved toward easing the path for students who transfer from the two-year community college to Temple. Officials from the two schools signed an agreement ensuring that the Camden County College associate's degree curriculum will satisfy nearly all of Temple's core curriculum, meaning students there who transfer to the Philadelphia university will not have to worry about retaking introductory classes.

As a teenager in Cheltenham JoAnne A. Epps dreamed of becoming a secretary like her two heroes - her mother, who worked at Temple Univerity and Della Street, the know-it-all assistant on the old Perry Mason television series.

Sitting around a Temple University conference table, Ameena Soliman and her classmates laid out the problem: Commuter students have no place to store books or keep warm while they wait for a train. "If you have four classes and four textbooks, you have to carry them all day," noted Soliman, a finance and marketing major from Yardley who was a freshman in the fall of 2013 when she lodged her complaint. The professors - Neil D. Theobald and his wife, Sheona - listened intently.

AT FIRST, it was a standard protest rally. When all was said and done, a university president was promising to review a professor's firing. Temple University students and North Philadelphia activists used a bullhorn on campus yesterday to demand that professor Anthony Monteiro's firing be overturned. But community leader Sacaree Rhodes said it was the university trustees, meeting upstairs in Sullivan Hall, who needed to hear the level of discontent. "We need to go inside," Rhodes said.

Temple president Neil Theobald said publicly this week that an on-campus football stadium likely would be part of the university's next master plan, expected to be released in 2014. Temple is having a "serious discussion" about the stadium, Theobald said, as an alternative to playing home football games at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple's contract with the Linc, which is due to expire after 2018, costs the university about $1.5 million annually. Theobald's comments, his most significant yet about the oft-rumored stadium, came during a post-inaugural event at Loews Hotel in Center City on Tuesday night.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Some kids are bored by dad's stories of the good old days, when seemingly every game was played in four-feet of snow and helmets were made of leather. Temple h-back Chris Coyer, however, found inspiration in the tales. "I think they actually helped me to become a halfway decent football player," Coyer laughed before taking the field at Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday. Coyer's father, Chris Sr., played at Minnesota in the mid-1970s and has tales from the most hallowed stadiums in college football.
