Theobald said, “JoAnne is a proven innovator, collaborator, and cultivator of robust partnerships in North Philadelphia and worldwide. She has earned national honors as an advocate for diversity and social justice. Her qualifications would impress anyone, but it is her character that truly sets JoAnne apart.”

Epps joined the faculty at Temple University in 1985, becoming the associate dean of academic affairs at the Law School by 1989. By 2008, she was named the dean of the law school. She is now considered one of the most influential leaders in the legal education.

Epps started working for the University as a cashier when she was 16. She went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree from Trinity College and a J.D. from Yale Law School. She worked as the assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and as deputy city attorney for Los Angeles before returning to Temple University.
