The Hope Center

Welcome to The Hope Center's New Temple Website!

The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice at Temple University exists at the intersection of action research, policy and advocacy, and educational training services to ensure that students are able to meet their basic needs at colleges and institutions around the country. We believe that students are humans first.

Enroll in Hope Impact Partnerships (HIP)

We are a leading national action research center redefining what it means to be a student-ready college, with a movement centering on students’ basic needs. You’re likely here because you—like us—believe that students are humans first. You also know that basic needs security is central to learning and is critical for student success and degree completion.

Enroll in HIP to learn about how you can best support students at your institution.
