“Temple’s bold plan” gets a shout-out from the Inquirer

The Inquirer’s editorial page praised Temple President Ann Weaver Hart’s 2020 plan today, saying it could heal relations between the community and the university.

The editorial noted Hart and the university administration’s troubles with faculty and employee unions, but credited her with standing up to John Taylor’s threats and enduring the union negotiations.

It did say that Hart has been “sluggish” in implementing her vision since she arrive in 2006. What do you all think? Has Hart been successful in your eyes? Does the 2020 plan have “the potential to become a home run” for Temple and the community, as the Inquirer said?
