Center for Industry Engagement
Experience - Education - Partnership

In the last year STHM has embarked on its own journey of self discovery with a focus to define exactly who we are, what we do, and how we will be impactful and dedicated to the preservation of our industries and development of emerging future industry leaders. This comes as part of our newest initiative in developing a school wide strategic vision plan dedicated to service, support and engagement of STHM students, faculty, staff and industry stakeholders.

In light of our strategic plan and success strategy we are proud to announce the Center for Industry Engagement – a merging and blending of former STHM administrative offices the Center for Student Professional Development and Industry Relations – Today we are a single unit dedicated to experience, education and partnership that span across our STHM community members including our students, staff, faculty, Temple University Community and our Industry Partners.

Our Mission

The Center for Industry Engagement (C.I.E.) delivers innovative programming and services that prepares students for career entry and professionals for career advancement.
