“I am focused on raising money to make sure that Temple’s tuition continues to be affordable and continues to have wold class facilities. That is a pretty full plate and is how I see me spending my time through 2017 and 2018,” Cawley told PoliticsPA.

Temple University announced that former Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley was taking over as its vice president of institutional advancement .
Cawley, who was Lieutenant Governor under former Governor Tom Corbett, has been leading the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey since leaving office.
“Jim is such a Temple backer and Temple booster. The more I got to know him, the more I appreciated his great appreciation for what Temple is all about,” Temple president Richard M. Englert told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Cawley received both his bachelor’s degree and law degree from Temple.
