Partnering through a pandemic

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020, Towson University’s work with 500+ partners across the region through BTU—Partnerships for Greater Baltimore didn’t stop. Instead, the partnerships pivoted, endured challenges and, in some cases, formed because of the pandemic. TU recently celebrated four partnerships making a big impact by addressing the needs of TU students and community partners during this time.
