Fair use rationale for Image:TempleEdCenter.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:TempleEdCenter.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Actual number of enrolled students[edit]

An unedited version of this article had the number of "students" at 2,980. But from Temple University's own information, a number like 2,980 includes mostly non-matriculated "participants" in programs sponsored by Temple University Japan. The actual number of students in degree programs is less than 1,300, of which about 850 are undergraduates.

When four-year colleges and professional-degree granting universities refer to students, it usually means students enrolled in pursuit of a degree. And so the revised description is more accurate.Hoofin (talk) 14:33, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

How Temple University Japan funds itself[edit]

Temple University describes Temple University Japan as a wholly separate institution that awards Temple University degrees. But more accurately, Temple University Japan looks like a branch campus funded by Temple University in Pennsylvania, but considered a for-profit business by the Japanese government. (Hence, the imposition of consumption tax on Temple Japan tuition.)

Since the article mentions a tax controversy with the Japanese government, it is fair to include the question of whether Temple Japan is not receiving implicit subsidies from the Commonwealth (state) of Pennsylvania in America.Hoofin (talk) 14:33, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

-However, you are inviting controversy into a page that does not deserve it. All research on this problem shows that your own blog is the only source of controversy. Whether you are correct or wrong cannot be determined with the information provided - but you yourself have shown that there is MISSING information on how the finances of TUJ are done. As Wikipedia is a gathering of knowledge, fact, and supported theory, the controversy serves no purpose on this page unless the topic becomes A)socially recognizable, B) media recognized or C) facts are discovered to either prove or dispute your claims. Allowing your edit to exist would only cause controversy - not to inform people of it. Wikipedia is not Wikileaks.
