The Student Life Team at Temple University Rome is committed to taking a proactive approach to addressing matters regarding violence prevention and wellness.
During the Spring semester of 2018, we initiated campaigns and events that promote safety and wellness on our Rome Campus. These efforts complemented the National Campaign IT’S ON US and the Wellness Center conducted on Main Campus in Philadelphia.
The aim of these initiatives is to raise awareness and promote safety and wellness among students studying abroad. These topics have been approached with a cross-cultural perspective. Here at Temple Rome, we believe that cross-cultural awareness is a key skill that we want our students to develop on their way to becoming global citizens.
