Welcome from the President

Glenda O. Barron, Ph.D.Glenda O. Barron, Ph.D.On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the faculty, staff, and students of Temple College, I invite you to explore the many programs and services available on this website.

Since its founding in 1926, Temple College has become a truly comprehensive community college, offering an array of educational opportunities in an ongoing effort to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of its students.

If your goal is to pursue a baccalaureate or higher degree, Temple College is a point of access for numerous professional fields of study through its transfer curriculum leading to the Associate of Arts degree. We also offer an opportunity for our students to complete upper-level classes toward a baccalaureate degree on the Temple College campus through a partnership with Texas A&M University – Central Texas or online through an innovative partnership with Franklin University.

If your interests lie within a field of technical study, Temple College offers challenging programs leading directly to employment through specialized certification or an Associate of Applied Science degree.

If you need short-term job-related training or retraining for skill-specific occupations, the Temple College Division of Business and Continuing Education provides many opportunities throughout each calendar year for open enrollment classes as well as customized contract training in partnership with local business and industry.

Temple College has combined a sense of history and tradition with unprecedented progress in the transformation of its campuses, programs, and services to meet the educational, cultural, and socioeconomic needs of a multi-county service area. Many of its programs have received national and even international recognition; many of its students have reached the highest levels of professional achievement.

I hope that you will join us on one of our Temple campuses, at our educational centers in Hutto and Taylor, or perhaps through the wonders of telecommunications, from a location most convenient to you. Our commitment at Temple College is quite simple: to make a difference in the life of each student.
