Conwell in 1884, Temple’s official motto—Perseverantia Vincit, “Perseverance Conquers”—reflects its students’ drive to succeed and commitment to excellence. Temple is a vital institution in the Philadelphia region and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, contributing more than $3 billion toward Pennsylvania’s economy each year. The university also has a strong global reach, with long-standing and vibrant campuses in Tokyo and Rome, programs in London, Beijing and other locations worldwide, and nearly 300,000 alumni living around the world.
