School of Media and Communication to be Renamed The Lew Klein College of Media and Communication

The new name honors Klein's distinguished career and decades of teaching service at Temple, and recognizes a historic, multimillion-dollar gift to the school from Klein and his wife, Janet. Their gift is supported by two additional seven-figure contributions from Temple Trustee Steve Charles, SMC '80, and Trustee H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest and his wife, Marguerite. It is the largest single gift in the school's history. A formal dedication ceremony is scheduled for this spring.

The Temple Community Celebrates National Philanthropy Day and Giving TUesday
