“The Center for Media and Information Literacy is dedicated to improving the quality of media and information literacy practice locally, nationally, and internationally.”



Mission: The Center for Media and Information Literacy was established in 2011 at Temple University as a hub for research, outreach, education, and professional development on issues involving media literacy and information literacy locally, nationally, and internationally. The CMIL is a “global chair” in media and information literacy as designated by UNESCO.

Our work is

strategically aligned around three areas:

1. Scholarship: Develop and implement a multidisciplinary research agenda examining the impact of media and technology, with a focus on media literacy education
2. Media industry: Encourage the integration

of media literacy and information literacy principles in content developed for television, online, gaming and other media.
3. Community service: Provide community outreach, public programs, and educational services targeted to the needs of youth and local school and after-school educators



*My Pop Studio : My Pop Studio is an online interactive game designed to teach media literacy skills to preteen girls.

*Philadelphia Media Club: Afterschool media literacy program at the Lenfest PAL Center in North Philadelphia.

*K-CAPA Media Literacy Program: This program links undergraduate students from Temple University with teachers at K-CAPA to integerate media literacy curriculum into their media production and theater program.
