Recognizing our success stories

Each year, Temple honors the achievements of 30 outstanding alumni working to change the world through a combination of grit, will and vision.

From a global network of more than 51,000 young alumni, we highlight professional Owls working and impacting the world in new and exciting ways.

Our honorees span industries and continents and include advocates and athletes, doctors and researchers. They are educators, entertainers and entrepreneurs, and, perhaps most importantly, they are our legacy.

Launched in 2019, in a partnership between the Alumni and Constituent Engagement and Strategic Marketing and Communications departments, the 30 Under 30 award program highlights a trailblazing cohort of Temple Made leaders, recognizing not only the remarkable work they’ve already done, but the work we know they will do.
