Message to CST Graduates:

Congratulations! Today, you are Temple University alumni.

I know that this is not the college graduation you imagined. This year, you—all of us—have faced so many challenges. But in the Temple tradition you continued to work hard, to research and study, to connect with your classmates and faculty and to be part of a thriving Temple community. Be proud of your success!

I urge you to continue to build and strengthen Temple connections as you move on to the next phase of your lives. The CST Alumni Board—experienced and successful technologists, entrepreneurs, researchers, inventors and more—is a powerful network that you can access throughout your life. We are here to help you and all Temple Owls succeed!

With Temple by your side, I know that you can achieve great things in your career and in your community. Every CST graduate draws upon the remarkable scientific and technical education earned here at Temple to move our world forward.

On behalf of the CST Alumni Board, and the nearly 16,000 CST graduates who have gone before you, I wish you much success in the years ahead.


Mark Dash (BA ’84, CIS)
President, CST Alumni Board
