Connecting Campus to Community

As an anchor institution, with roots as a state normal school, TU has always prioritized working in collaboration to meet student needs and those of the region through teaching, research, and outreach. In 2016, when President Kim Schatzel announced BTU—Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore, greater purpose and presence were given to the community engaged work that’s been taking place across the state for decades. Along with initiatives like Together Towson, TU is working to strengthen and support community connections and to create new opportunities for positive impacts.
