Richard M. Englert, outgoing acting president at Temple University, was given the honorary title of chancellor by the university's board of trustees on Tuesday.

Englert will step down Dec. 31 and take a year sabbatical before returning to teach education courses at Temple. Former presidents David Adamany and Peter J. Liacouras also hold the chancellor title, which does not carry any official responsibilities.

New president Neil D. Theobald officially takes the helm Jan. 1. - Susan Snyder
