YouAreWelcomeHere at Temple University


Temple University has brought hundreds of American colleges and universities together to deliver a welcome message to international students.  After creating our first video in November, we set out to spread the word across the globe. The #YouAreWelcomeHere hashtag is now a viral social media campaign and we are proud of Temple’s pioneering role in welcoming international students to the United States. We hope that our videos showcase the affection and compassion we share for the international students at Temple University and beyond.

Check out Temple faculty, staff, and students proudly sending the message to all international students: #YouAreWelcomeHere!


In Temple's second video, the Mayor of Philadelphia, Jim Kenney, and the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, even joined in the message!


Temple also created a third video, featuring Temple students and staff expressing the value that international students bring to campus.


Congratulations to Jessica Sandberg, Director of International Admissions, for being named to The Chronicle of Higher Education's 2017 Influence List for her role in the #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign!
