The TUAA Parliament is the governing body representing all Temple University alumni. It includes representatives from each of Temple’s school and college alumni associations, regional networks across the country and abroad, shared interest societies, the Owl Club, faculty and student organizations. It exists as a leadership group to foster closer relationships between alumni and the university, serving as a two-way conduit for alumni everywhere. The TUAA president enjoys full voting privileges as an ex-officio member of the university’s Board of Trustees. Other TUAA leaders serve on key university and trustee committees representing varied alumni interests.

The Temple University Alumni Association, an independent 501(c)(3) organization, has supported major campus construction projects as well as alumni engagement efforts. It provides direct funding to programming initiatives including student and young alumni engagement, professional development, regional programming, signature events, school and college alumni engagement activities, alumni and faculty awards, and athletics.
