Welcome, Alumni and Friends of the Tyler School of Art!
As Interim Dean of the Tyler School and Vice Provost for the Arts at Temple University, I enjoy interacting with our innovative faculty and students as they embark on their individual artistic journeys.
I invite you to be a part of the Tyler community – artists at all stages of their careers, learning from and supporting one another. If you are an alumnus/a, please visit alumni.temple.edu to update your email address and contact information so that you can keep apprised of upcoming events.
There are numerous ways to support our students, faculty and the future of meaningful art. For example:

Tyler Alumni Benefits
Invitations to exhibitions at the Temple Contemporary
Temple Contemporary exhibitions explore the cutting edge of contemporary art practice and foster a dialogue between alumni, faculty, students, the regional community, and art world at large. On Tyler's web site you will find updates on current exhibitions.
You should have received your alumni card when you graduated. An alumni card basically serves as your key to the University. The card, awarded to any graduate, is useful at several places on campus for discounted services, such as the library and recreation areas. Should you ever need to have your card reissued, or wish to request a new card, email email@example.com
Whether you are a recent graduate or seasoned alum, the Office of Career Development Services is available to help you achieve your full potential. The office provides high-quality resources and counselors where you can receive free career planning.
Visit their web site at www.temple.edu/provost/careercenter/.
The Office of Continuing Education serves a wide variety of students and encourages alumni to return to Main Campus for personal enrichment. There is no formal application to enroll as a non-matriculated student, undergraduate or graduate.
