Temple University Makes Acting President Permanent

by Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA ― Temple University’s acting president is staying on as the head of the school.

The university’s board of trustees on Tuesday named Richard Englert as Temple’s president. The 70-year-old was appointed acting president in July, after the board forced out former president Neil Theobald over a deficit in the merit scholarship aid budget and the removal of the university’s provost.

Officials say the board still plans to conduct a search for a new president. But, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that process probably won’t begin until next summer, meaning Englert will likely serve as president of the 39,000-student university for the rest of this academic year and the next.

Englert is a former provost and chancellor who has previously served as acting president prior to Theobald’s appointment.
