The entire Temple University community is mourning the loss of JoAnne A. Epps, our 13th president, who passed away on Sept. 19, 2023. She spent nearly 40 years of her life serving students, faculty, staff and alumni, and her loss will reverberate through the community for years to come.
All were invited to join us at the Bell Tower on Main Campus at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, for a special vigil in President Epps’ honor. It was a time to reflect, remember and support one another during this time of grieving. You can watch a recording of the vigil.
On Sept. 29, 2023, the Temple community came together to honor President Epps one last time. View the recording of the Celebration of Life service.
